Alternative Latin rock band, Mezklah has survived a shoot out in El Paso, TX, toured the U.S., Latin America, Europe, Japan, and Mexico, received such praise as to have their song “Fogata” featured in Pride and Glory starring Edward Norton and Colin Farrell, and played at the first ever rock en español concert in Memphis, TN. They are supporting their sophomore album Bestia Sonika, (available on iTunes and Amazon.com) with a summer tour hitting up the south-west as well as southern California.
Mezklah’s drummer and local resident of Long Beach, Matias Pizarro, is thrilled to play at Rhythm Lounge: “LBC has always been a cradle of music from
hip hop to rock to punk. In its ghettoes are where some of the most interesting racial combinations go down and somehow everyone gets along in LBC clubs. I think it’s fertile ground for our Mezklah vibe.”
This summer has been busy for Mezklah: a South-West tour filled with bodypainting and other exciting events, multiple shows in Los Angeles, and in between traveling and shows, Mezklah is in the studio recording their new album out later this year.
Mezklah will be in California for only a brief time and then back on the road to play in El Paso, TX and Albuquerque, NM.
