On January 9, Albuquerque’s own Launchpad hosts showcases Metalachi. Doors for this 21+ show are scheduled to open at 8 p.m., with Metalachi taking the stage at 9:30 p.m. Entry is only $8 but is subject to change at the door.

Formed in 1982, Metalachi cover heavy metal songs in the Mexican musical style of mariachi. Yeah, you read it right. From the band’s website: “On a hot summer night in Veracruz Mexico circa 1982, Consuela Espinoza stumbled out of her dilapidated shanty and into Rock N Roll history. What began as an innocent night of snorting horse tranquilizers in a hotel room with seven members of the village jai alai team went on to produce the greatest metal band to ever live. Unhampered by a steady regime of tequila and ill-advised sumo lessons, nine months later five bastard children were born.”

Around since 1997, Albuquerque’s Launchpad has played host to bands of numerous genres, including punk, indie rock, and metal. The Launchpad is located on 618 Central Avenue Southwest, which is between 6th and 7th streets.
