Venue : LA County Fair at the Plaza De Las Americas Stage

I found out a few weeks ago that Metalachi was going to playing the mariachi stage at the LA County Fair this year. I was super stoked because I haven't seen them since last December. For those who don't know, Metalachi is the worlds first and only metal mariachi band! They cover metal songs and make them mariachi. Its fucking great! The violinist plays all the guitar solos perfectly! My favorite is the trumpet player. He's dressed up in black metal war gear, but still has a sombrero on. :lol: I really hope this thread doesn't get moved because it is a bunch of metal songs. I've seen acoustic shows get posted and not moved on here...

Metalachi posted a few days ago they were going to go on at 6:30pm and play four sets. I got my friends, and after a little lag, we found our way to the stage a little after 7pm. I walked up to hear the opening notes of Rainbow in the Dark on violin. I was super stoked I was finally seeing this amazing band again! I was kind of bummer I didn't get there when they went on, so I unfortunately missed the first few songs. Rainbow in the Dark could have been the opening song for all I know, but I didn't ask anyone. It was awesome seeing all the old people sitting around listening to metal covers. Most of them got pissed off and left because they were expecting actual mariachi songs, but weren't going to get them! The third set was the weakest in my opinion because it was mostly actual mariachi songs, so I didn't know the names of them. That's why there is the question marks. Each set was between 30 and 45 minutes, so Metalachi ended playing at least two hours and 15 minutes, if not more. I was happy they played all of their debut album Uno. The only thing that bummed me out was that they didn't play Killing in the Name Of. They might have before I got there, but I will never know. Anyways, I hope people will check this band out cause they are awesome! If you are in the area, they are playing again tomorrow! It's $5 to get into the fair after 5pm with a coupon and $12 to park. It is completely worth it!!

Do it! I'm always posting videos of them in the "What Are You Doing" thread but no one seems to care. They're ALWAYS playing show in Hollywood, Fullerton and Long Beach. Most shows are 21+ in case you're a minor. Here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1u638S9B4Kw) is an amazing video of them doing Raining Blood and Shout at the Devil!!

I don't understand why these guys don't go on tour far from LA. They always seem to have a sold out show whenever they play out here. Here (http://metalachi.com/show-schedule) is their tour schedule. Mostly shows in my area, but a few in NM and TX.

Interesting concept though I don't enjoy mariachi music.

Might have to check it out sometime. Not surprising they're only playing states that border Mexico.

You should check them out at the Slidebar since you live so close to it. I never thought about them only playing the states bordering Mexico, but that totally makes sense now.

I will probably check them out at Slidebar or the swapmeet. Not sure how the turnout would be in places like Boston, or Pittsburgh. Not sure if they even know what mariachi music is up there.

OMG THAT IS AMAZING!!! Judging by the name, I thought you were talking about some weird hipster/vegan metal band that does Yoga during their set or something :lol:

I need to YouTube this once I get the chance :D

Not trying to be funny or anything, but the east coast has quite a few Latino immigrants. I think these guys could draw here as long as it was promoted.

I'm sure they could draw a big crowd out there. They sell out venues that Destruction and Crowbar played at.
