The Bronx Tickets
The Bronx - Mariachi El Bronx
There can be few bands that switch between genres so seamlessly, but these Los Angeles rockers have proved a deft hand at two. Debuting Mariachi El Bronx in 2009, they showed a Dr. Jekyll side to the Mr. Hyde that is their traditional hardcore punk sound, and they regularly perform as both acts across the globe - typically on a joint tour. While the world waits for new music from either form of this fantastic five-piece, fans can console themselves at the White (Drugs) Christmas shows in December 2015, which will see each version of the band headline their own selected dates of the tour.

The Bronx Biography - Split Punk and Mariachi Identities
Most musicians toil their way to success, but fame couldn't wait for this runaway train of a band. The hardcore punks attracted record label attention after just two live appearances, and incredibly signed a deal with Island Def Jam after their twelfth gig. With four brilliantly acclaimed eponymous albums under their belts, the group are naturally tremendous on record, but it's hardly surprising that it was their incendiary concerts that put them on the path to professional musicianship. The sheer energy the quintet put into their blistering performances quickly whips crowds into a frenzy, with fans eager to mosh to stomping tracks like 'They Will Kill Us All (Without Mercy)', 'False Alarm' and 'White Guilt'. It's fair to say there are few better examples of true punk spirit in today's music scene.
However, the band don't just limit themselves to their traditional hard rock guise, with Mexican folk alter egos Mariachi El Bronx born in 2006. On paper, switching from screaming punk to gentle crooning over Spanish guitars ought not to work, but the transition has been near-universally hailed as a success, with the first of three self-titled records released in 2009. Frontman Matt Caughthran demonstrates a fascinating depth to his vocals, and the group showed admirable restraint in their song writing. It's a true testament to the musicianship and versatility of the band that they've built up two audiences for their wonderfully different styles of music.
