AUSTIN, TEXAS (HotTejano) — Tequila Rock Revolution will be performing at Austin’s premiere intimate venue 3TEN ACL-Live on Friday, May 7, 2021.
Tequila Rock Revolution 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. The band is the brainchild of Austin’s premiere Latino Rocker and Electric Violinist, Haydn Vitera.
Donning traditional Mexican sugar skull face paint, the 7 to 10-piece supergroup features some of Austin’s top 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 violin. “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.
Tequila Rock Revolution’s version of the Mariachi classic “El Cascabel” is available on all streaming media and the music video featuring their re-imagining of “Remember Me” from the animated film Coco is now on the group’s YouTube channel.
Tequila Rock Revolution at 3TEN ACL-Live in Austin, Texas, on Friday, May 7, 2021 at 9pm. Tickets on sale now at 3TENAustin.com.
