In about 11 hours I’m gonna board a bus from Monterrey, Mexico to San Antonio, Texas and I ain’t skerred. If that Mickey Mouse Club member Justin Timberlake wasn’t deterred from going to Jalisco to do research for his new tequila brand after a bunch of severed heads were found in Oxxo coolers, then dammit I’m not going to pee in my pants over traveling through Reynosa.Besides, I’ll finally be fulfilling my dream of visiting Tamaulipas!
Seriously, I don’t know what I’m getting all worked up about. Not all the news out of Northern Mexico was written by the Boogey Monster and copy edited by the Chupacabra. A Michigan jukebox company just announced they’ll be moving their operations to Reynosa. Nothing too bad can happen in a place that manufactures “Rock Around the Clock” machines.
Speaking of rocking, I actually do have a good reason for making the trek up to the Lone Star State and its not to retreive my bike from the basement of the Alamo. I’m fixin’ to go to the South by Southwest music fest. Yeeeee Haw, the things we do for Rawk, right?
I’ve got some pretty cool interviews lined plenty of Chilangabacha-approved musicians that I intend to post on here. Stay tuned for excerpts from the adventure on here and on Twitter. If you haven’t already added me I’m @lachilangabacha
