On a hot summer night in Veracruz Mexico circa 1982, Consuela Espinoza stumbled out of her dilapidated shanty and into Rock N Roll history. What began as an innocent night of snorting horse tranquilzers in a hotel room with seven members of the village jai alai team went on to produce the greatest metal band to ever live. Unhampered by a steady regime of tequila and ill advised sumo lessons, nine months later five bastard children where born. Unable to care for her hungry offspring and concerned that motherhood would seriously interfere with her Tuesday night Karaoke league, Consuela hastily packed the babies into the saddlebags of a burro and sent her children off to America in search of a better life. Against all odds, 14 years later, and nearly dead from dehydration, the burro knelt down to drink from the stagnant waters of the Rio Grande just ouside of Juarez Mexico --mere yards from the U.S. border. With one fleeting burst of energy the brothers Espinoza cinco climbed from their leather restraints and scampered the vast reach of the river, collapsing onto the sweet amber hue of American soil.

Hailing from the frothy surf of Mohave Beach, Arizona, Tiki Bandits first unleashed their punishing brand of aggressive oldies a couple of endless summers ago. Frank Voodoo, of Glow Skulls fame, is your MC, tour guide, and crooner-in-chief. The lovely Triple B – Beach Bunny Becca, formerly of Arizona's Safewerd, wields guitar stage left, singing tunes guaranteed to make the cholos cry. On the thumping purple bass, hailing from the sands of a beach in another galaxy far, far away, is the thunderous Aaron McCart, whose groove hangs ten and shoots the curl like Surfer Joe wishes he could. Cuca Escobar, a veteran of Vegas Beach rockers The Broads kicks, punches and spits out the backbeat. Florida's own Eric Engan, an alum of many bands including ancient hardcore pioneers Roach Motel, anchors stage right, wielding a Les Paul and occasional sneer. Whether it be Huntington Beach, Tijuana, Albuquerque or Dallas - SURF'S UP when Tiki Bandits hit the stage, and you know everyone's gonna get . . . lei'd. more >>>
