A San Antonio band is fast gathering a national following. First, you should know Piñata Protest music is a really unusual hybrid.
“We call it Tex-Mex punk rock."
Accordion player and lead singer Alvaro Del Norte puts it this way.
"Y’know, it’s a blend of all sorts of music, from all sorts of cultures, from all regions that have come to Texas. Tex-Mex plus a punk rock element.”
And this week they’re heading to south by southwest.
“Yeah, we’re doing south by southwest again this year" he said. "I think it’s our fifth time in a row.”
