Mexrrissey and Skapache Mode at The Regent

Post Author: Leslie Kalohi

What do you get when you combine the songs of Morrissey (you know, of The Smiths and Morrissey) with Mexican musicians singing the lyrics in Spanish? The answer is Mexrrissey and the group held a concert at The Regent in Los Angeles on Monday, May 11.  Performing as Mexrrissey this evening were Camilo Lara (of MIS), Ceci Bastida (of Tijuana No), Jay de la Cueva (of Moderatto), Ricardo Najera (of Furland and MIS), Sergio Mendoza (of Calexico and Orkesta Mendoza), Jacob Valenzuela (also of Calexico) and more. Performing an opening set were Skapache Mode, a ska band that covers songs from the 80s.
