Our favorite mariachi, Vanessa Del Fierro, has a big Texas voice and incredible emotional depth. As the leader of Mariachi Las Coronelas, she’s brought her San Antonio crew crossover popularity with an eclectic mix of traditional tunes and surprise pop favorites.

She’s been teasing this video on her Facebook for a while and now we have it!

She sent us this email last night:

Paco Estrada, Brandon Callies as The Heart of the City: ‘The River’ (video)


The River is new video from Brandon Callies (Black Tie Vendetta, Brandon Callies and The American Revival) of Austin and Paco Estrada (SouthFM, Paco Estrada and One Love) of Dallas.

‘Far Alamo’ is the epic battle they never taught you in school (video)


Alien invaders tried to mess with the gringos at the Alamo in 1836, but they didn’t count on brave defenders Laurence Harvey, John Wayne, Richard Widmark, Charles Bronson, Yul Brynner, James Coburn, Clint Eastwood, Henry Fonda, Terence Hill, Steve McQueen, Gian Maria Volonte, Lee Van Cleef, and Eli Wallach. Far Alamo documents the epic battle they never taught you in school.

Watch out, Geico! Here comes El Martillo Tejano (video)


Who cares if switching to Geico can save you 15 percent or more on car insurance?

If I were to have a car — or live in Texas — (both very unlikely scenarios) I’d totally call Jim Adler, aka El Martillo Tejano, who promises to protect my people (i.e. The Hispanics) from sleazy insurance companies and give us the most compensation possible in case of a car accident.

Watch Adler inform us about his services in the best Gringo-Spanish I’ve heard in a while.

Take it away Jim!
