Add to Calendar
We are extremely gutted to make the announcement that Metalachi has been postponed until August 2021*. We truly dislike making announcements such as these but as we fight and claw our way through these difficult times, we are sometimes forced to make these statements.
As with all postponed shows at the Moxi, any tickets purchased for the original date will be valid for the postponed date. Please hold on to your tickets! We appreciate everyone's patience in working through this mess with us. Your support now helps to ensure a Moxi future.
Our mission from the beginning has always been to cultivate a live and local music community. We cannot thank our concert-goers enough for their support over the years and cannot wait to get back to our full concert schedule. As there is no timeline for these things the best we can do is hang on.
We are hosting as many socially distanced live shows as we possibly can, and will continue to do so, safely, until we are told we can return to 100% normal. Please check back to MoxiTheater.com and our social media pages often. There we will provide updates and keep you informed as information becomes available to us.
Thank you for understanding and we cannot wait to see all your smiling faces soon!
THE STORY OF METALACHI…
On a hot summer night in Veracruz Mexico circa 1982, Consuela Espinoza stumbled out of her dilapidated shanty and into Rock N Roll history. What began as an innocent night of snorting horse tranquilzers in a hotel room with seven members of the village jai alai team went on to produce the greatest metal band to ever live. Unhampered by a steady regime of tequila and ill advised sumo lessons, nine months later five bastard children where born. Unable to care for her hungry offspring and concerned that motherhood would seriously interfere with her Tuesday night Karaoke league, Consuela hastily packed the babies into the saddlebags of a burro and sent her children off to America in search of a better life. Against all odds, 14 years later, and nearly dead from dehydration, the burro knelt down to drink from the stagnant waters of the Rio Grande just ouside of Juarez Mexico –mere yards from the U.S. border. With one fleeting burst of energy the brothers Espinoza cinco climbed from their leather restraints and scampered the vast reaches of the river, collapsing onto the sweet amber hue of American soil. As if by destiny, lodged in the sand beneath their tanned faces was a record sleeve upon which were the words “PARANOID” and “BLACK SABBATH”. For many years to follow, this definitive black metal album served not only as a teacher and a mentor..but also as a friend. From these bleak and humble begins grew the seed that would eventually be the band we know today. Often referred to as the greatest heavy metal band to ever live..always referred to as…METALACHI.
