Metalachi

When: Thu., Feb. 12, 8 p.m. 2015

A puro mariachi band at its conception, Metalachi heard Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man,” spanglicized Ozzy’s creation to “Iron Tapatio” and forever changed the face of music. Well, not really. Somewhere between a novelty act and the realest of deals, the quintet lives up to its bastardized name, taking KZEP hits and placing them in mariachi context. Singer Vega de la Rockha remains faithful to the original metal melodies, while the band, comprised of guitarrón, trumpet, violin and guitar, take it full Son style. Expect Metalachi to pull out all the favorite hair metal hits, while diving into heavier material on occasion. Highlights include Slayer’s “Raining Blood,” Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and Iron Maiden’s “Run to the Hills.”

Price: $10-$15
