While “mojado-punk” might not be the most politically correct term — certainly uncomfortable for a gringo como yo to commit to print — it’s an apt descriptor of Piñata Protest’s sound, and one that bandleader/accordion punisher Àlvaro Del Norte has frequently used himself to denote the band’s furious, border-hopping, sonic fusion.

Regardless of the moniker you give it, Piñata Protest’s Tex-Mex punk music is defiant and full of movement, rage, and instrumental inventiveness. Plenty of folks have taken note, and the band is coming home with metal fan favorites, Brujeria.

$22.50-$25, Wednesday, November 15, 6:30pm, The Rock Box, 1223 E. Houston St., (210) 677-9453, therockboxsa.com.
