245 E. Green St.
Pasadena, CA 91101
Touring as the one and only heavy metal mariachi band, Metalachi is an unlikely combination of heavy metal essentials performed with traditional mariachi instrumentation. Equipped with some festive costumes and a very tongue-in-cheek sense of humor, the show is unlike anything you have seen or heard before. From Black Sabbath to Iron Maiden, Bon Jovi and Guns N Roses, Metalachi runs through an anthology that would appease even the most discerning metalhead. Friday night, the band will perform at The Rose in Pasadena for a sit-down dinner show that will certainly prompt the audience to ditch their seats. Wildly entertaining, Metalachi is a potent combination of skillful musicianship and darn good time.
