WHAT’S YOUR GO-TO MIXED DRINK? CESAR PEREZ MURRAY’S BAR:

MATTHEW MONTANA:

My go-to drink depends on the season, but if I could have something at the end of the shift any day, it would have to be a gin and tonic. There’s a handful of places that will spice it up, other than just gin and tonic, either having fresh fruit or bitters. I think Gray Dog and Blackbird Downtown do a really good job of doing that.

My go-to drink would be an Old Fashioned. I love the Old Fashioned at Blackbird, especially with the burnt orange peel. That is absolutely delicious. And the presentation they do is phenomenal.

WENDY SMITH GRAY DOG BAR:

SEAN ISAASI

My drink of choice would be an Old Fashioned, just because it is very strong and tasteful. Old Fashioned was pretty much like the first drink I ever made while bartending. So it’s special to me in that aspect.

REPUBLIC NATIONAL DISTRIBUTING COMPANY: Go-to drink is a shot of whiskey. Bourbon, preferably because I don’t want to make the bartender’s job too hard and just cut right to the point. Beer and a shot of bourbon, and I’m good.

Last week, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz visited El Paso to discuss topics like the border wall and the North American Free Trade Agreement. During his stop at the National Border Patrol Council office, protestors and supporters of Cruz stood outside the building, chanting and arguing.

FROM THE EDITOR: VICTORIA G. MOLINAR comment: @whatsupweekly I went a little overboard on Saturday night at the Downtown Night Market. The first of its kind on the patio of the charming San Carlos Building, I saw a ton of familiar faces and was stoked to see produce from Unity Community Yoga & Produce, which is located out at La Union, NM. The merchants said the cost of the fruits and veggies was by donation, so à la “Futurama” meme, I handed them some cash and said, “SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!” Okay, so I didn’t say, “shut up,” because that’s just rude, but I did go haywire with all the colorful goodness they had to offer. What especially intrigued me was all of the unfamiliar varieties: mountain spinach (which is in fact not spinach), jujubes (no, not the candy), verdolaga (or purslane in Inglés) and so on. It was my first time tasting a jujube, also known as a Chinese/Korean/Indian date, but unlike the wrinkly sweet dates I’m familiar with, these were plump with hues of red and green and tasted somewhat like apples. Verdolaga is known to have the highest amounts of omega-3 fatty acids than any other leafy vegetable. One vegetarian friend said that it has more omega-3 than fish, although I haven’t found anything online that supports that claim yet. However, with all of the worries we have about mercury in fish today, why not opt for this plant? By the way, it’s actually a weed that grows like crazy in El Paso, but I wouldn’t recommend eating it off the cracks of sidewalks. How do you eat a weed like purslane? I minced it and tossed it with honeydew, pomegranate (which I

Behold my night-market finds with a beautiful backdrop of an old towel! I may or may not have purchased more than this at the market. #ImpulsiveShopperProblems #HashtagsDontWorkInPrint #WhyAmILikeThis

also bought from Unity Community) and honey infused with red chili. I credit this idea to Rubí Orozco Santos, who made a similar dish during a food demo at the Downtown artist and farmers market a few Saturdays ago. Those food demos are really cool because they incorporate produce from the neighboring vendors. Other fun finds included homemade mineral-based highlighting cream from Leíto Makeup and a choker from ElaElu Jewelry. You can see both of those items in the picture above. ElaElu owner Bianca Youngblood sold pieces where 100 percent of the proceeds went to the American Red Cross Hurricane Harvey relief fund. One of the coolest deals I scored were some teacups from Lost Love Vintage. The Baileys Irish Cream face teacups (pictured above) were a buck each while the antique mini flower vase of a ’50s woman’s head was only $5. If you’ve yet to checkout one of our local markets, I strongly encourage you to go – whether it’s the Downtown Night Market, the Saturday art markets at the Union Plaza and Ardovino’s Desert Crossing or the ones in Las Cruces. You’ll learn a lot about veggies or fruits you might not have heard of, and you’ll build a deep appreciation for the community’s artists and growers.

The board of directors for the future Downtown children’s museum held a meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 23 where they revealed the architect finalists and renderings of the proposed exhibits.

SUN CITY MUSIC FEST GOES ABOVE & BEYOND WITH DIVERSE LINEUP By Lorenzo Alba, Jr. comment: @whatsupweekly

Ascarate Park will once again morph into a dance floor for the area’s biggest rave this weekend, and Sun City Music Festival organizers say they’re bringing some of the best electronic dance music the world has to offer. SMG Events and Disco Donnie Presents have made this the

granddaddy of festivals in the Southwest. This year’s lineup is arguably the most diverse one since the festival’s inception. Marshmello returns as Saturday night’s headliner while trance nation favorites Above & Beyond will close the festival on the main stage on Sunday. Recently, Marshmello collaborated with one of El Paso’s pride and joys, MTV Video Music Award-winning R&B artist Khalid. Their song “Silence” debuted at No. 42 on Billboard’s Hot 100, and according to Billboard’s site, it earned “the highest ranking debut of any song on the chart” on Tuesday, Aug. 22. Other festival favorites joining the stage include Shaun Frank, Dirty South, Don Diablo, Malaa, Tchami and NGHTMRE. Tyler Marenyi, aka NGHTMRE, said

Digweed will play a threehour set on Saturday night on the Beatport Stage beginning at 11 p.m .

he loves coming to Texas and New Mexico “The fans are insane – totally crazy,” Marenyi said. “Thank you, El Paso, for always welcoming me. I have some more surprises for you, especially some new music.” The Midnight Oasis stage is also jam packed with EDM darlings like Getter, Rezz, Borgore and Seven Lions. Seven Lions will close out Saturday night, while Borgore will close on Sunday night. Seven Lions is gearing up to tour with Tritonal and Kill the Noise in October, but he said that for now, he’s pumped to perform in El Paso this weekend. “Sun City is one of my favorite festivals,” said Jeff Montalvo, aka Seven Lions. “Last year, I played an early set because I was playing a later set at another festival on the same day. So this year, I got a better set time – a proper time. Be ready, El Paso!” The festival is also partnering with Disco Donnie’s positivity campaign called Celebrate

Together(ness). Creating an online hub of good vibes, fans can nominate their friends who possess what’s known in the EDM world as PLUR – peace, love, unity and respect. After submitting a friend’s photo and story at the web address togethern.es, that friend can win a VIP package that includes tickets to the Something Wicked festival in Houston along with a hotel booking and dinner. SCMF has another special treat this year: the legendary Sasha & John Digweed will play a three-hour set on Saturday night on the Beatport Stage beginning at 11 p.m. That stage is sure to get house and techno heads a lot of what they like with none other than Nicole Moudaber, who will close out Sunday night’s dance party along with Steve Lawler, Sam Paganini, Guy J, Andre C and Guy Mantzur. From their track selection to their technical prowess behind the decks, a Sasha & John Digweed show has become a must-see-and-listen experience. “We’re just trying to deliver the best set possible for each crowd,” wrote Sasha & Digweed over an e-mail. “We have years of experience between us, so comContinued on 6

FROM ALTERNATIVE ROCKER TO DJ, SEAN FRANK ENJOYS THE JOURNEY By Lorenzo Alba, Jr. comment: @whatsupweekly

Shaun Frank, a newcomer to EDM, has already made a name for himself as producer and remixer. His rapid rise can be attributed to the fact that he’s a musician and was the lead singer of Canadian alt-rock band The Envy. The DJ and singer-songwriter has made an impact in the industry by collaborating with the likes of Oliver Heldens, Borgeous, KSHMR, DVBBS and The Chainsmokers. Frank’s billed on the already diverse lineup of Sun City Music Festival this coming Labor Day weekend. He took time out to speak to What’s Up earlier this month in anticipation of his El Paso debut. Q. You’ve had some great successes with collaborative efforts on some the industry’s biggest releases with the likes of Aoki, DVBBS and others. What do you attribute your almost seamless collaborations to? I thinks it’s how I got myself into this business – being in a band, singing, writing songs and learning

to produce at that level. I’m prepared as a producer and songwriter. I show up ready, and that gives me an edge.

Q. Do you miss being a lead singer in a rock band? I do, but I get to sing on my own songs. That is cool, and I love that. At an EDM show, I still feel that energy that I did as a lead singer of a band. Actually, there is more energy in EDM. Q. What led you to the EDM scene and how is it different to you than the live music scene? Lately EDM is becoming more like live music. What led me to EDM was the energy. It was around 2014 when the Swedish House Mafia and Deadmau5 were huge. The energy, the fresh sound – it attracts you and it’s infectious. Live music was becoming mundane to me; the audiences were different. Q. Has that experience of being a lead singer of a band helped you in your new career as a DJ-producer-remixer?

For sure, just being a singer-songwriter gives me an edge. I have a song written, ready to go. It’s not just making beats. I had already written and produced three albums before I came to EDM. I go in ready to make the very best production possible. I’m ready! Q. Are there any new projects you can tell us about? Yes, “Upside Down,” which I sang, and a duet with Delaney Jane, “Throwback.” Q. What can El Paso and the Sun City Music Festival expect from you this coming Labor Day weekend? That weekend, I’m doing three festivals: the Breakaway Festival on Friday, then Electric Zoo on Saturday and Sun City on Sunday. I’ll be ready to go by the time I get to El Paso. Be ready – I’m bringing the energy.

bined, it makes the gigs very special.” The trajectory of their careers span more than three decades and in this ever-evolving industry, there is something to be said about that. The alchemy that occurs when they perform together is unsurpassed and is a tribute to their professionalism and consistency. “No idea why this works; nothing is ever planned we

just get up and do our thing. I guess that’s why it works, as it’s organic,” wrote the duo. “The key to longevity is consistency; if you deliver for your fans every time, they will always come back.” The two wanted to leave festivalgoers with one last message: “El Paso, we want the dance floor to be full and rocking with like-minded people with plenty of energy and positive vibes. Get ready for good quality underground electronic house music.”

BORGORE ON HIS LATEST ALBUM, FAVORITE RUDY’S DISH it up on Soundcloud, but my team wants to release it a different way.

By Lorenzo Alba, Jr. / comment: @whatsupweekly

Israeli DJ Borgore, aka Asaf Borger, is back in town for Sun City Music Festival this Labor Day weekend. The local EDM favorite sold out several shows in the last couple of years and as he said in a recent phone interview with What’s Up, this is the year he “quit giving a sh*t.” This mentality certainly has catapulted his career to a different place in the hearts of EDM fans around the globe. We chatted with Borgore about his latest album, “Blasphemy,” and why he loves to hit up Rudy’s Country Store and BBQ when he’s in the 915. Q. As a producer, label boss and DJ, you delve in variety of genres of music. How do you keep it all together? It’s hard, especially when you’re on the road. But I have a great team. They help me a lot. A shout out to them. Honestly though I feel like the social media management is the most difficult thing. It’s f*ck*ng hard. Q. Are there any forthcoming projects you can tell us about? My EDM album, “Blasphemy” is about to be released in September. It’s about three weeks away from completion, and the Blasphemy tour will continue with that release. I also have a jazz album I finished since January, and my team and I are trying to figure out a creative way to release it. If it was up to me, I would just put

Q. You’ve had collaborations with many artists. What was your favorite collaboration to date? They were all great and good fun. The ones that stand out are the ones I did with my close friends, like Carnage. Some friends get together to play basketball, video games of other things. We get together and make music. Great vibe when you’re with your friends. Q. You’ve become a mainstay at many festivals around the world. What’s your favorite festival or best memory of a festival you played at? I don’t know; I like all of them. They are all different in their own way, special in their own way. Some of the best times are when I’ve just gone with my friends to enjoy it together. Just f*ck*ng going from stage to stage and listening to all the different music. Q. You’re an El Paso favorite and have sold out some shows here. What do you love about playing El Paso? The crowds are super into it. They are very dedicated fans with great energy and that makes for a better show and vibe. And Rudy’s BBQ – their creamy corn is the f*ck*ng best in the world. A vegetarian would go there just for the creamy corn.

Q. What can Sun City Music Festival expect? 2017 is the year I quit giving a sh*t. I’ve been playing what I want and so far, so good. My fans are happy. Expect that! If I want to play a commercial track, I play it, but I play it because I f*ck*ng like it!

NIGHT(RE)CAP: BARTENDER CHALLENGE AND DOWNTOWN MARKET The early bird might get the worm, but night crawlers have their share of goodies, too. On Wednesday, Sept. 23, bartenders threw down their fiercest mixology skills during the Hendrick’s Gin Bartender Challenge at The Venue. Hosted by Republic National Distributing Company, contestants from bars like Hope & Anchor, TradeCraft, Prickly Elder, Born and Raised and Murray’s vied for a bottle of Hendrick’s Gin, infused with rose and cucumber, and a $200 gift card. Matt Scarbro of Blackbird Cantina Deluxe placed first after creating a concoction of rose water, simple syrup, hibiscus extract, wild berry hibiscus tea, cardamom, egg whites and lemon juice. Called Catch the Bouquet, the cocktail was topped with rose petals, star anise and grounded hibiscus. Visit WhatsUpPub.com to see more photos and recipes from Hendrick’s Gin. That following Saturday at the San Carlos Building, vendors gathered for their first Downtown Night Market outside of 501 Bistro. Attendees got to enjoy homegrown veggies from Unity Community Yoga & Produce, vintage finds, art, homemade makeup, jewelry, Good Days Trading’s packaged superfood and Social Ice’s cold sweets made with coconut, cucumber and mango. To learn about the next night market, follow “The San Carlos Building” on Facebook.

ELECTRONIC EVOLUTION: OLD-SCHOOL RAVERS ON EDM THROUGH THE AGES By Lorenzo Alba, Jr. comment: @whatsupweekly

The rave scene has long been a platform for people to express themselves in ways they might not have been comfortable with before. A place and event where you could be yourself all while meeting others and dancing to electronic music that was not mainstream. “There was no judgment; it was all about the music and dancing,” said Angel Cabrales, a 44-year-old artist and art professor at UTEP. Rave culture has evolved many times over in the last three decades. “The biggest differences between the rave scene of the 1990s versus today are that there was a wider variety of musical genres in the ’90s, and today, the scene has morphed into a festival scene that glorifies the commercial as opposed to the underground,” said Tally Grost, a 38-year-old raver and DJ. Cabrales said one big draw for the old rave scene was its mysteriousness. “You never knew where the DJs were going to be,” said Cabrales. “Just a date and time to call for a map to its location

‘Seeing [DJ] Junebug in 2005 was one of my best rave experiences if not the best,’ said Angel Cabrales, a 44-year-old artist and art professor at UTEP (pictured above at the 2005 Junebug show). ‘The rave was on a reservation outside of Albuquerque. I danced with my eyes closed in the middle of the desert feeling the music run through me. It was spiritual.’ Photo courtesy of Angel Cabrales

[on the day of the event].” The clandestineness of the rave locations was intriguing as well as inviting to the person who wanted to experience the spontaneity for a few hours or days. The secrecy was mainly to avoid interference by law enforcement since there was the possibility of illegal activity.

“A lot of the parties I went to when I started going out around ’98 or ’99 weren’t housed in legitimate nightclubs, and the directions to the event weren’t even made known until the night of the event,” said Esteban Carrasco, a 33-year old DJ-producer from El Paso with a residency in Las Vegas. “The mystery and

adventure of whether you’d find yourself dancing the night away in an abandoned warehouse or in the sand dunes under the night sky was all part of it.” For many ravers, traveling hundreds of miles for a good show was well worth the drive. “Seeing [DJ] Junebug in 2005 was one of my best rave experiences if not the best,” Cabrales said. “The rave was on a reservation outside of Albuquerque. I was living in Arizona and my friends and I packed up a tent. “We arrived around 10 p.m., set up our tent with hundreds of others and then danced all night,” he continued. “I met a man in his ’70s dancing on the dance floor. It was his first time in America. I remember him telling me how happy it made him to see so many different people just dancing together and how he wanted to do this for the rest of his life. “I danced with my eyes closed in the middle of the desert feeling the music run through me. It was spiritual.” El Paso has had its own rave scene for some time and has seen a renaissance when it comes to electronic dance music. Warehouse parties, clubs and festivals have been a part of the culture since the ’90s. “One of my first experiences was in the basement (that was shared with) the Plaza Theater,” said local rave goer Joe Nava. “I walked down a small staircase Continued on 10

EVOLUTION

and heard the bass get louder and louder as I went further down. Nothing could’ve prepared me for what I was about to walk into. I was surrounded by some of the coolest looking, coolest dancing people I’d ever seen. “I saw some of the most life changing DJ sets by headliners and locals in that place. If people only knew.” Many ravers have grown with the new EDM culture and embraced its advancements in technology. “I like that the rave culture has expanded into festivals and much more,” said Chito Aguilar, a 36-year-old business owner and rave goer. “With its evolution comes trial and error. I feel that there is more variety in the music and events. Technology is great – better sound and the visuals are extraordinary.” This colorful, vibrant, untamed culture has taken the globe and made it dance. It takes you to a new state of euphoria that is difficult to describe in words and much easier to experience. “My best experience was at Electric Daisy Carnival at the Los Angeles Coliseum in 2010,” Aguilar said. “Kaskade was playing and it was just perfection – the vibe, the music, the people – everything.” Fast forward to 2017, and many DJs and festival goers say that the borderland has

“The mystery and adventure of whether you’d find yourself dancing the night away in an abandoned warehouse or in the sand dunes under the night sky was all part of it,” Esteban Carrasco, an El Paso native who now lives in Las Vegas as a DJ-producer.

made a name for itself in the EDM world. “Hardpop (in Juarez) was recognized as one of the top 100 venues in the world by DJ Mag recently and Sun City Music Festival is a yearly staple on the national festival circuit,” Carrasco said. “There are local DJs and producers making very sophisticated music that gets international recognition, and venues like Club Here I Love You are up and operating to offer clubbers a less homogenized version of what dance music culture is today. “There’s a level of sophistication, taste, and attention to detail that puts the El Paso metroplex on par with any other well developed scene.”

One could argue that the rave scene has been commercialized, although the underground scene still has its place in the culture and always will. “What I love about the rave scene is its pattern of introducing groundbreaking music to the world,” Grost said. “I found a great love for the drum and bass scene because the contemporary one still has the qualities of openness, passion, and of still being underground some 30 years after its birth.” People say that rave culture makes people feel like they are part of family – part of something that is bigger than them and is not of the everyday world.

The fashion of the electronic music scene through the ages deserves its own story, but one fashion staple has remained: a plethora of handmade colorful bracelets – also known as ‘kandi’ – pictured here at the 2014 Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas.

“It’s a necessary thing for our society, where one can go and avoid judgement and have a good time,” said internationally acclaimed EDM artist Shaun Frank. “The rave culture is always going to evolve and change.That’s the beauty of it.”

Rockabilly Riot heats up Labor Day weekend By Denise Nelson-Prieto / comment: @whatsupweekly

T

he seventh annual Great American Rockabilly Riot will be in full swing this Labor Day weekend at the El Paso County Coliseum. The two-day event is an exciting blend of fast cars, great music and plenty of babes. “That weekend, we’re bringing the 50s back to El Paso,” said Rockabilly Riot founder and organizer Jake Baca. “We’re targeting everybody from 25 to 85. We want to attract older people who are going to bring their kids and their grandkids and listen to rockabilly music and check out awesome cars.” Event organizers are calling Rockabilly Riot the city’s largest car show, showcasing souped up vintage rides that will make your grandparents jealous. Other elements of the festival draw a mixed crowd of music lovers and glamazons. What began as a car show in the parking lot of the Great American Steakhouse has evolved into a full-fledged kustom kulture blowout and is attracting some huge names in the scene. Los Angeles-based psychobilly rockers Tiger Army are the perfect addition to this year’s Riot. They will headline the show Saturday. The music lineup also features a mix of national and local acts including Gambler’s Mark, RenoDivorce, Fixed Idea, Viva Las Vegas, The Paladins, Star Mountain Dreamers and The Pinsetters. New additions to this year’s Riot include barber services and tattooing. There will also be a car swap where people can trade parts. “Everybody’s welcome so come down if you want to get rid of that old car that’s probably been sitting out in the backyard for years,” Baca said. As for the dolled up gals, there will be a pinup contest produced by El Paso native Lisa Love. She lent her talent to the likes of such world-renowned festivals as the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender. “I’m excited to bring the work I do, that makes my family proud, to the people of El Paso,” Love said.

Her husband, chicano artist Julian Mendoza, is one of the Riot’s featured artists. Love said her excitement to bring her husband to her hometown is on an equal footing with her enthusiasm for hosting the contest. “My husband is known for [painting] zoot suiters and the pachuco style, so going back to EP and taking him there is a highlight for me,” she said. The contest is also hosted by local pinup model Miss Mozzy Dee and acclaimed burlesque performer Ruby Champagne. Dee and her sister are teaming up with Kitty Luv Photography and Wardrobe Divas to offer a styling, photo and outfit package at the Riot. On Saturday, Sept. 2 Deady Page Productions will host a Rockabilly Riot after-party at Tricky Falls for those 18 and over. Pachuco Jose Y Los Diamantes will also perform their brand of ’40s-era Mexican R&B.

SOCIAL DISTORTION FRONTMAN MIKE NESS ON HIS MUSICAL JOURNEY, UPCOMING BOOK By Denise Nelson-Prieto / comment: @whatsupweekly

Social Distortion is set to play Tricky Falls on Tuesday Sept. 5. The Orange County quartet can be considered music’s ragamuffin strays, not neatly fit into tightly bound categories. Their ballsy sound is a hard driving blend of bad-boy blues, rebel punk and outlaw country. The result is a scorching, unapologetic trek into some of music’s most unrelenting, raw and honest songwriting. We caught up with frontman Mike Ness at the beginning of a 27-gig tour. Q. Twenty-seven shows seems pretty overwhelming. How do you deal with the stress? I run a pretty tight regiment. I’m a stickler for how much sleep I get. I eat healthy and I workout before the show. That gives me more energy. If I was eating McDonalds and shooting heroin every day, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do. (Laughs.) When I go on stage, my lungs are opened up. I’m already in a rhythm. It’s like the hard part of my day’s over, then I get to go do a show. Q. Have you had to compromise sound or creative vision at all? I didn’t buy into the whole, “If you become successful, you’ve sold out.” Isn’t that the whole idea – to sell out shows and sell a lot of records? (Laughs.) That doesn’t mean compromise.

I built my foundation on – blues-based rock ’n’ roll. Then I got into punk. That record was a big risk but it was just like ‘I want to stand apart from all these bands in L.A. and do songs that country influences and references to folk music and roots.’

Q. The punk scene must have been in full swing when you guys first started off in the late ’70s. We were at the peak of a musical revolution. Music was being brought from the stadium back into clubs; back to the streets. We couldn’t help but feel we were a part of something special.

Next Wednesday, Sept. 6, local ZZ Top fans will get the chance to enjoy the group in the flesh when they perform with Guns N Roses at the Sun Bowl Stadium. Around this time last year, fans also enjoyed something the group has rarely done in a career that now stretches more than 40 years – a live album. Called “Live – Greatest Hits From Around The Globe,” the album features concert performances of 15 of the best known songs from across the career of that “Lil’ Ol’ Band from Texas.” It’s not the band’s first live album. The catalog includes a 2008 release, “Live From Texas” (recorded in 2007) and 2001 saw the release of a show from the archives, “Live In Germany 1980.” Clearly, big chunks of ZZ Top’s career have never been documented in the live setting, which has been a bit of a frustration for bassist Dusty Hill. “If you remember way back, there’s an album ‘Fandango!’ that’s half live and the other half is studio,” Hill said of the 1975 album in a recent phone interview. “We were going to do a live album then, but that’s the way it worked out. It’s always stuck in my craw a little bit through all these years that we never really finished a live album.” The problem is not a lack of live recordings from across ZZ Top’s career. “We have an enormous amount of (live) material,” he said. “Since we had that good habit of recording things and we play so many shows, and we have for so many years, you know, yeah you come away with a lot of material.” “Live – Greatest Hits From Around The Globe” helps fill in some gaps in the group’s live discography by bringing together some of the best performances from the past 11 years of touring of ZZ Top’s most popular songs The band members – Hill, singer/guitarist Billy Gibbons and drummer Frank Beard – were involved in listening to hours of live recordings from which the performances on “Live – Greatest Hits From Around The Globe” were chosen. It was quite the undertaking, Hill said, and

the 15 tracks included on the album lean toward songs from the ’70s and ’80s (think “La Grange,” “Tush” and “Gimme All Your Lovin’”). Hill said there are certainly other concerts in the band’s vault that are of releasable quality, but for now, he’s mainly concerned with playing live. In 2014, ZZ Top had to cancel shows when Hill first dealt with illness, and then later that year when he fell and injured his hip. Then in April 2016, Hill suffered a fractured shoulder when he tripped on steps at a venue in Lubbock, Texas, forcing the group to nix a run of spring concerts. The latter injury was especially concerning because it affected Hill’s ability to play bass. “I got so freaked out that I hurt my hands,” Hill said. “I didn’t think about my shoulder until I started to get up. ‘Oh-oh, it doesn’t work.’ I was trying to get somebody to pop it back so I could play, and I’m glad they didn’t do it because I had an X-ray done, and it was broken. Had they pulled on it, it would have been a lot worse.” Hill had to rehab the shoulder at home and was well enough to do a European tour that preceded the latest series of U.S. tours. “I rehabbed up to the point to where we hopped over and did a month in Europe,” Hill said. “I kind of finished rehabbing my shoulder on stage over there. So it’s back and I’m doing well.” WHAT’S UP

How do I get over my consciousness about being seen as a “sell-out” for dating a white guy? I think if I was a receptionist, I’d feel less troubled, but I’m a professional and hate fitting into the stereotype of the successful Latina with the hyphenated last name. Is there anyway that a chola from East LA and a surfer from Malibu would not be seen as an odd couple? – Loca Pero No Naca Dear Crazy but Not Trashy: You’re not a sell-out for dating gabachos; you’re a vendida for thinking you’re better than others because you’re a “professional.” And a secretary isn’t? Maybe the Malibu crowd think you’re a maid, and may the Eastlos crowd think your surfer is some hipster douchebag.

Q.

Why have you all kept Astrid Hadad such a secret? I just saw a show about her, and for God’s sakes! THIS woman really, really needs a bigger audience for her act. Does she ever come to El Norte? Could you ask? Please? She has a wit like a razor for EVERYONE. Pretty cool—if nothing else, get her name out as she is very cool. – Galloping Gorda the Pavement Crusher Dear Gabacha: Haddad is a c*ing*n*, but there’s a bunch of similarly subversive mujeres in Mexican music and performance art, from the days of Lola Beltrán and Gloria Trevi through the late, great Jenni Rivera and Rita Guerrero of Santa Sabina. There’s more to Mexican female art than Frida Kahlo, gentle c*br*n*s.

Q.

My “Mexican” workmates get very excited to go see Latin bands. (I say “Mexican” because some have been here so long they don’t speak Spanish well). These people put salsa on the jukebox whenever they get a chance. They clamor for Mexi-music at holiday parties. They seem to wrap themselves in the Mexican flag. I’ve seen their record collections, and there’s a bunch of classic rock and reggae—but, if it has Latin flavor, then they’re all over it. They even start speaking with accents. We’re talking post-grad degrees, third or fourth-generation. Question: why can’t they motivate to see rock or reggae at free shows around town, but then get so easily excited about Latin bands? –Bruja in HB Dear Huntington Beach Witch: Because free rock or reggae shows tend to vale madre. But I really don’t get your question. So you’re mad that assimilated Mexican-Americans like Mexican music? Why aren’t you mad at Italian-Americans for worshipping at the altar of Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra? Or Southerners for wishing to see bluegrass remain as pure as a mountain spring in the Bluegrass? That’s right: because they’re not Mexican. To paraphrase the old “Annie Get Your Gun” song, “Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better”: Anything Americans can do, Mexicans can’t because we’re just illegal alien savages to them. And they wonder why we planned the Reconquista… ___ Ask the Mexican at themexican@askamexican.net, be his fan on Facebook, follow him on Twitter @gustavoarellano or follow him on Instagram @gustavo_arellano!
