San Juan, Puerto Rico

Tumbled into LOS VIGILANTES snarling organ-laced swing is a touch of rockabilly, a whisper of surf, and some sweet, sweet doo-wop meant for slicking back your hair and cruising around lookin’ for action. The Vigilantes blend 50s rockabilly tones with punk and affection (and switchblades) MTV Iggy described them as “vital garage punk en Español. But you do not know what you are dealing with until you’ve seen the San Juan quartet live. I’m talking about Carbonas/Oblivians levels of sonic annihilation. After you’ve seen them play, you will ask yourself what happened and if it was real.
