On Friday, Feb. 25, fans of Latin music, punk rock, traditional Latin folk music and country are in for a real treat as Emo’s plays host to The Third Annual Saustex Country & Mexican Dance. Two of our favorite Latin bands come in from San Antonio and Los Angeles for one amazing night of eclectic music.
San Antonio’s own puro pedo punk rock originators, Piñata Protest, are performing in support of their debut album Plethora. Released in 2010, the album has received critical acclaim from both Latino publications and non. Often referred to as the “Mexican Dropkick Murphys” or “the love child of Flaco Jimenez and Sid Vicious”, the group’s fusion of three cord punk punk rock and conjunto is truly original. Be ready for one of a kind live experience that features crazy fans, dancing and gritos.
Also performing for the Saustex event is the Los Angeles based Latin fusion band, La Santa Cecilia. Having first set foot in The Live Music Capital at last year’s South by Southwest, the band makes their long awaited return for fans who were without a wristband needed to see them perform. Fronted by the ever so prolific Marisol, the six piece band also features Pilar Diaz’s guitar player, Gloria Estrada. Our Editor describes their sound as a blend of Pistolera and Linda Ronstadt.
Rounding out the bill will be The In & Outlaws and Hickoids. Doors open at 9:00pm. $6 cover for 21+. $10 cover for 18+. Emo’s is located at 603 Red River.
