Metalachi returns to San Antonio on Sept. 10
The World’s First And Only Heavy Metal Mariachi Band bring their world renowned stage show back to San Antonio TX and Kapone’s on Thursday Sept 10th.
Hailing from Hollywood California via Juarez Mexico, Metalachi is a musical/comedy stage show that somehow seamlessly blends the world of Spinal Tap and Cheech & Chong into an over-the-top stage spectacle. Now considered to be one of the fastest growing shows in the US, Metalachi has garnered worldwide acclaim for their unique brand of raucous humor and innovative musical mastery, quickly amassing a loyal and diverse fan base of music lovers in addition to gaining praise from music royalty such as Dave Lombardo (Slayer), Vinnie Paul (Pantera, Hellyeah), Eric Wilson (Sublime), Billy Idol and Howard Stern along the way. Fresh from their recent appearance on NBC’s hit Summer show AMERICAS GOT TALENT, Metalachi most recently had the distinction of being named one of the top 5 cover/tribute bands in Los Angeles by LA Weekly.
The group is a 5-piece ensemble of classically trained mariachi musician brothers, that have been fused together with the power of heavy metal. Voted one of the best live shows in Southern California by Examiner.com, Metalachi takes their cues from outrageous stage shows like KISS, Gwar and Rob Zombie with outrageous costumes, stage production, personas and onstage antics. The band features Vega De La Rockha on vocals, Maximilian “Dirty” Sanchez on violin, Nacho Picante on guitarron, Pacho Halen on guitar, El Cucuy on trumpet and is managed by mysterious impresario Warren Moscow.
Fans can expect an unlikely meshing of metal classics from artist such as Metallica, Slayer, Ozzy Osbourne and more with traditional mariachi standards from the likes of Vicente Fernandez and Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan …all played with traditional mariachi instrumentation but with a stage show that strays far from traditional.
Doors open at 7 pm and this is an 18+ event. Advance tickets are available online at www.ticketfly.com. Kapone’s is located at 1223 E Houston St, San Antonio, TX 78205.
