Mariachi El Bronx on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert

Jun 22nd, 2012 in Music

Sometimes you guess wrong.  We lazed out and played it safe on Cinco de Mayo by sauntering up to the Santa Barbara Bowl for Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros’ ultimately-underwhelming show.  We should have instead gone up to Nipomo for the X/Los Lobos/Mariachi El Bronx concert at the golf resort.  Turns out that was the musical party on el Cinco.  Having seen and loved  the other two bands for forever, we were most keyed-up to see Mariachi El Bronx, who have won us over repeatedly on the talk shows.

To get a good, spicy flavor (albeit minus a full stage and the pandemonium of their live sets) for the band, check out their recent Tiny Desk Concert for NPR below.  We particularly love the intro to and playing on the second song, Everything Dies (at 4:21).  All is well on this western front.
