Pinata Protest

Listen to streaming Pinata Protest at their MySpace page...

An interview with the band...and Pinata Protest defies Punk Rock Norm" here

The boys of Protest grew up hating the Tejano music forced upon them and decided it was time to change the sound of San Antonio into something harder and faster.

"What we wanted with this band was to mesh together music we hate with music we love," Salas said.

The boys wanted to show that they were from San Antonio and that this is the music of Texas, Garcia said.
