Nostalgic for the old-school intensity of bands like Herejía, Histeria, Solución Mortal, Masacre 68, Atoxxxico, and Xenofobia? Then get with 2013 and grab a flight to Mexico City for Ceremony’s Mexican debut on January 12!
The show is at the historic cantina-slash-bullfighting museum (bueno, there’s bullfighting posters on the walls) La Faena, where apprentice bullfighters would hang out in the 50s, and now Ceremony, bullshit-fighters of Rohnert Park, will bring their brutal live show. The “faena,” or “task,” is the matador’s balletic final series of passes, one-on-one with the bull, preparing it for the kill, displaying his art, superiority, and courage in the process (metaphors with Ceremony abound).
