San Antonio-based punk band Piñata Protest is celebrating the release of their second full length album, El Valiente. The group had their Austin CD release show last week at Antone’s and those of us that went are still hungover. Their live show always leaves us wanting more and always seem to be over too quickly.
Speaking over over too quickly, Piñata Protest released a cool one minute music video for their rendition of the Mexican classic, “La Cucaracha.” One of ten tracks you can find on El Valiente, the music video was shot and directed by award winning filmmaker Jim Mendiola. The video features over 1,000 still photographs and 144 rubber cucarachas in a one minute tour through San Antonio’s West Side barrio.
