We’ve all been there…You’re sitting in a Mexican restaurant, polishing off a monstrous burrito, orange grease dripping from your fingers, when suddenly, six sombrero’d individuals burst through the door and start serenading you without warning or remorse.At Yours Truly, there’s only one thing we love more than burritos and that’s great music. So we decided to combine our dueling passions for a new series we call, Banditos. The inaugural episode of Banditos featuresDent May and His Magnificent Ukulele singing “Oh, Paris” to the unsuspecting patrons of Tacqueria Cancun, home of the greatest super tacos known to man.I met Dent, Tommy, Carr and Bobby at the Independent, where they were scheduled to play their first ever SF show as part of a great Saturday Night bill during Noise Pop ‘09. With Young Jeezy’s Thug Motivation blaring through the van’s speakers, I stuffed myself in the way-back seat to explain our idea of barging in on burrito enthusiasts just like a Mariachi band, only without the guitarrón and tip hat. The guys nodded in loose agreement (they may have been nodding at Jeezy’s killer adlibs) and passed the short trip to the mission by talking about their tour, and singing the “Full House” theme song.
