Brujeria, Cattle Decapitaion, Pinata Protest 

When: Fri., Oct. 7, 7 p.m. 2016
Price: sold out
It’s been 16 years since Mexican-American death-grind legends Brujeria released a new album—and with their latest they’ll no doubt pick up some fans who weren’t even born then. The band is keeping with their guise of semi-anonymity, and while members Asesino and Guero Sin Fe left during the intervening span, the lineup that made the new Pocho Aztlan (Nuclear Blast) sound as solid and cohesive and unified as ever. Brujeria all but pick up where they left off, dispensing churning, howling riffs and agonizing Spanish-language screeds about violence and the occult—but not without a hefty dose of Chicano pride. Their triumphant return is well-timed: Can you imagine a more effective barrier to chainsaw right through than the metaphorical Trump wall? They even wind down their 13-track apocalypse with a favorite live cover, “California Uber Aztlan” (Dead Kennedys’ front man Jello Biafra was an early member of the band).
