Review: Mariachi El Bronx, secret living room show, Glasgow

Ticketmaster’s Yvonne Morrison joins Mariachi El Bronx for an intimate night in Glasgow, as they celebrate the 25th anniversary of King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut.

Earlier this month, I was invited to a secret gig at Live at Dingwall’s, the brainchild of John Dingwall, the showbiz and music writer for Scotland’s Daily Record newspaper. Over the last few months, John has invited some of the hottest music acts in the world around to his place to perform for a select audience. Acts who have performed recently include The Vamps, The Twilight Sad, Twin Atlantic and Simple Minds, to name but a few, so we felt super privileged to be invited to such a special event.

Mariachi El Bronx review

To coincide with King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut’s 25th birthday celebrations, the mighty Mariachi El Bronx, hailing from LA and the alter ego of The Bronx, took to John’s living room. An eight-piece Mariachi band playing loudly and brilliantly in someone’s living room was an incredible sight to see! Mariachi El Bronx are appearing over the following month at King Tut’s, along with a host of other acts including Julian Cope, The Cribs, Father John Misty and a whole host more.

Later on in the night, Scotland’s very own The Lafontaines, who also are taking part in King Tut’s anniversary, also took to the makeshift stage with a great set and equally brilliant banter.

You can celebrate with King Tut’s this February at other fantastic gigs – get King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut tickets today.
