The show was at the Slide Bar and it was free for Cinco de Mayo. I was told this bar has a problem with getting over crowded really fast, so I showed up early to make sure I got in to get a wrist band so that I wouldn't miss a free Asesino show. I got there at 8pm to find out that there were almost no people there. My friends and I found out college night lasted from 830 to 1030pm and we would get half off drinks, so we waited till then and were able to get $4 shots of Patron and $3 Shock Tops. I also found out I didn't need to have shown up so early because they weren't doing the wrist band thing for the show room. While my friends and I waited for the show to start, we sat on the patio. Well a mariachi band walked around and surrounded the random tables, playing songs for them. Well they came up to my table and of course they played the Mexican Hat Dance
Sorry I couldn't get a setlist or name of this awesme mariachi band
The first band went on at 9:20pm and were called Black Oil. They were alright but I would never go out of my way to download their music. The next band was Fake Figures, who featured a member of Atreyu. This band was definitely not suppose to be on the bill because they were post-hardcore/screamo and it was terrible.
Asesino went on at 11pm and played for 75 minutes. This was the first time for me to see them live, so it was an awesome experience. I have seen Brujeria three times, but I seem to always miss Asesino. I think Asesino is way better live than Brujeria, but they need to cut out some of the covers and play more Asesino songs. Dino had the setlist right in front of him, but they definitely changed it up from what they were planning on playing. I thought it was funny that Tony brought out a joint right beore Marijuana was played and passed it around the crowd. The biggest surprise was after Matando Güeros when Tony screamed "Angel of Death" even though Asesino was listed as the next song. Well I thought it was a joke at first, but they played all of Angel of Death by Slayer. Even though the cover sounded awesome, it was ruining the whole "Spanish only" thing they normally do. So after Angel of Death, I figured Asesino was going to be next, but nope. As I waited for the next song, I heard the drums kick in "dun dun dun....dun dun dun" I thought, "oh no, please no" Then the Raining Blood riff kicked it.
I thought "NO,NO,NO! Bad Asesino, you aren't Slayer, so stop making the end of your show a Slayer show." Well they played Raining Blood and finally ended with Asesino.

So I guess I missed out on some great shit while at this show. If you ever go to the Slide Bar, there is a patio/bar at one end of the building and a show room at the other end. Well while I was leaving, which was forced to be rushed out faster than I wanted due to a friend being injured, he bit through his tongue, I noticed there was an awesome Cinco de Mayo party going on at the patio. There were a shit ton of hot women out there. My friend told me I missed a titty contest cause Asesino was on
I just think its random as fuck that some hot ass women were partying across the hall from an Asesino show
Well overall it was an awesome way to spend my Cinco de Mayo
