Piñata Protest Plethora · Panda Riot Far and Near · Matt Perrine & Sunflower City Bayou Road Suite
Mixing punk with Mexican border music is nothing new. Joe “King” Carrasco hit it big on the frat-boy circuit with nuevo wave-o Tex-Mex party songs that ultimately tasted like watery horchata. Tired of Black Flag copycats but not the energy, San Antonio native Álvaro del Norte reclaimed the corridos he rejected as a child to study under Texas accordion maestro Juan Tejeda. Now his band, Piñata Protest, serves a steaming pot of caldo de res with beefy punk riffs and greasy accordion marrow—the tastiest Norteño/rock recipe to date. Be sure you save your last bit of tortilla to wipe the bowl clean. (CA)
