Mockinpott, Down!
Jessy Bulbo, Taras Bulba
Nos LLamamos, Nos LLamamos
3rd Ear, 3rd Ear
Los Guanabana, Heartbeats
Los Margaritos, rocanrolandia

List compiled by Carlos Icaza. While he will quickly rebuke attempts to frame him at the center of any Mexico City music scene, he is intimate with a circle of musicians who regularly gig there, and he himself performs in about a dozen different bands, including Evil Hippie and Los Fancy Free. He also offered us his choice for best tacos, ever:

  • La Superior, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, USA
  • Taqueria Cocula, Lopez St., Mexico City, Mexico
  • Taqueria Bagdad, Puebla, Mexico
