Piñata Protest

Friday, May 19

Piñata Protest, San Antonio’s favorite Tejano-punk band, has been making waves nationally (and even internationally) for several years now. In fact, the hard working, hard touring crew, led by squeezebox murderer and firebrand performer Alvaro del Norte, has played far more shows outside of SA than inside over the past year or so. Fresh off a national tour with Brujeria, Alvaro and the boys are wasting no time getting back at it. On Friday, catch the electric and frenetic performers at Bang Bang Bar, as they gear up to head out on the road for a twenty-date tour that will find them playing in Mexico, a place in which their sound is deeply-rooted, for the first time. Piñata Protest will also be releasing a brand new EP, entitled Cuatros Exitos, on the occasion. In conclusion, this would be a fine time to celebrate this local treasure of a band, even as its purview becomes less and less local. $10.00, 9:00pm, The Bang Bang Bar, 119 El Mio Dr, (210) 320-1187. — JC
