Barrio Tiger / Bio

Barrio Tiger is an L.A. based garage punk band known for bringing the goods. After the demise of his beloved Juvee skateshop, Calixto Hernandez was losing his mind. "There ain't nothin' to do!" he cried so he hunted down Jimmy James, guitar slinger for kick ass rockers such as The Hangmen, The Comatones, and the Masons. Together they formed the nucleus of what would eventually become Barrio Tiger. Rounding out the current lineup is Montebello's hard hitting favorite son, Mark Benquechea, and mean machine Pete Lyman holding down the thunder broom! Barrio Tiger has shared the stage with Boots Electric (Jesse Hughes from Eagles Of Death Metal), The Vibrators, The Fleshtones, Red Fang, The Upper Crust, The Humpers, The Hangmen, The Superbees, Scream, Crystal Antlers, Deadbolt, Fatso Jetson, Early Man and the legendary Mike Watt, among others. Recent festivals and shows included slots at SXSW, the Eagle Rock Music Festival, Reno's Sleazefest, the Las Vegas Shakedown, Echo Park Rising (an answer to the Sunset Junction fiasco), and the San Diego Music Thing festival in addition to hard touring up and down the west coast as well as the south and southwest. Look for a brand new debut full length record dropping in Spring, 2015!
