Once a month, on an unassuming Tuesday night, darkness descends upon NoHo, as a group of brothers bring chaos and terror to our quaint little neighborhood. These brothers are Metalachi, the world's first and only heavy metal - mariachi band. Naturally, I had to find a way to be part of the fun!
Skinny's Lounge in NoHo always brings exciting events, shows, and fun to our stretch of Lankershim Blvd. Matthew, the man behind the awesome line-up of events at Skinny's Lounge, gave me the low-down on what their spot is all about. They are really creating a fantastic multi-functional space for every type of performance artist and their audiences. It is also a great place to discover something new, like I did with Metalachi.
Seriously, if you have not seen Metalachi yet, don't walk, RUN to their next show because it is way beyond what you expect. Cover bands can be cool, but these guys definitely make every song their own with their amazing musical talents, fantastic personas, and spectacular stage show. Plus, if you are lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the elusive "Bride El of Cucuy!"
