Tequila Rock Revolution @ Rock The River 2 - San Angelo, TX
Tequila Rock Revolution is the brainchild of Austin Latino Rocker/Electric Violinist Haydn Vitera. The show is a metal-fueled, Mariachi-infused spectacle of sight and sound paying homage to the tradition of Mariachi through an unprecedented fusion with modern metal and electronica.
Donning traditional Mexican sugar skull face paint, the 10-piece supergroup features some of Austin's premiere Latin Rock and modern metal musicians alongside some of San Antonio's most talented Mariachis.
Picture the machine gun rhythms of vihuela firing over a bed of intense dubstep grooves, requinto trading licks with shredding lead guitar and Mariachi strings joining forces with 7-string Viper electric violins. "Metallized" Mariachi standards and well-known metal/rock covers are weaved into a performance rife with dark imagery and Mexican folklore and brought to life with incredible lighting effects and stunning video.
