Mariachi El Bronx & Two Gallants going on tour, playing free show at Johnny Brenda’s next month

Los Angeles hardcore band Mariachi El Bronx and San Francisco folk-rock duo Two Gallants are teaming up for a spring tour of the U.S. & Canada that will bring them to Philadelphia on Tuesday, May 22nd. As a special treat just for Philly (well, and Chicago), they’ll be playing a free show at Johnny Brenda’s presented by Sailor Jerry.

While the show is free, there is a small catch: you must RSVP, and by doing so you’re also agreeing to “receive regular communication from Sailor Jerry.” Also, it is noted on the page that, while you must RSVP, “RSVP doesn’t guarantee entry.” I don’t see what’s preventing them from putting a limit on RSVP’s so as to guarantee entry for those who do RSVP, but, as they say, “that’s life.”

These two bands will be touring the U.S. and Canada together and will be joined by Gogol Bordello for a few dates as well. Check out the full tour schedule below.
