What: Mexican pop band that form in 2000
When: Houston @ House of Blues. Dec. 2, 2010.
Why: Sometimes we like to pop. I'm not scared of dancing!
Another shout out to Spanish MTV for this one!
It was a couple years back that I stumble upon their video "Por ti".
Who doesn't like a funky beat, lights, and a cute girl music video?
"Por ti" had the record for most weeks on MTV Mexico's Top 20, peaking at number-one for twenty-nine weeks. WOW!
Any how, she's pretty fashion and the music is fun so, add them to your I-pod.

Who’s at it again?
Wait wait she never stopped!
Does this girl ever sleep?
From the place popular for its art, croissants, and health care in comes FAFI!
At a hot 35 she’s known for her graffiti and urban art which started in the streets of France in 1994.
Her aerosol and paintbrushes give life to Fafinettes, who bring fun, sexy, and playful where ever they are placed.
Pink, hearts, undies, bright colors, and other cool friends are part of Fafi’s world, Fafinettes are not all play they are also aggressive and bold.
Fafi’s passport has been stamped by places such as Japan, China, Europe, U.S., Cuba and Mexico to name a few.
Sony was one of the first to go nuts on her work and therefore six vinyl fafinettes where created for the Time Capsules collection.
Some of her other collaborations include:
(first round for Adidas)
Fashion such as M.O.B.
and countless magazines.
(Book and vinyl faffinettes for M.A.C.)
Lily Allen was made into a fafinette in the video, Oh my God.
Her work can be check out at:
Also, a very lucky friend got to interview her in Mexico City, check it:
Her work just continues to get more creative and amazing with the years.

Who says, they don't play music no more?!?!?!
I was surprise at the amount of people at House of Blues and also by all the nationalities. Some spoke Spanish and the others just wanted to listen to a good Metallica cover.
Check them out:

At exactly 8:30, with the crowd still gathering, Fuska started to jam and the folks started dancing. They are a young band full of energy with a lead singer who can’t stand still, he just wants to get it going.
The room got heated as soon as Laskaretas stepped in, with the rhytme of the drums going hard one was bound to start sweating.
Two great bands to represent that Houston sure knows how to get its music on.
With 400 people screaming for Panteon Rococo, this was bound to be a good show.
Panteon Rococo is a ska band from Mexico City that was born around 1995.
The infuse styles of punk, reggae, salsa, and cumbia are pack into an energetic sound that comes with a positive political message.
This was there 2010 Ejercito de la Paz tour, The Peace Army tour, which voices, “Stop the racism and love the music." Most of their songs deal with government abuse, the improvement of society, and in this concert the main focus was the racism that’s going on in Arizona. The audience agreed with the message as they took part of the mosh pit, guys and girls didn’t care who they where slamming to of course they would pick up anybody who fell to the ground. One was able to spot Santos, el Zapatista, and the ring of smoke inside the mosh pit as the drums and the sax made the none dancers enjoy the show.

First of all I’m two shades more Mexican, my skin feels like leather and not your Louis Vuitton leather but more like that fake over priced urban outfitters. I spent 6 days away from my beautiful city on a quest to find new music to love, fresh conversations, and amazing sight seeing.
It took us 25 hours and 7 gas stations to reach our

We had two border patrol stops and were able to sneak my apples to
Made it to Coachella, sunburn, hungry, sleepy, and half my ass numb!
We built our tent and I slept like a baby!

Can wait to do it again next year! Who’s game?
