Celebrity Sighting--Allison & Paquita la del Barrio

We arrived at the Tapachula airport in Chiapas yesterday to a group of screaming school girls. Little did we know that we flew on the same flight as the punk/rock Mexico City band Allison. I can't really tell you what songs they sing, but it was fun to watch the madness unfold at the small airport.

The guys were in town playing for the Tapachula Expo & Feria. They'll also play at South by Southwest in Austin later this month. Here's a pic Jeremy managed to snap just as the teens began to attack. That's the bassist Manolin, with the curly hair on the left.

And during lunch at a local seafood place today, we spotted Paquita la del Barrio. No crazy scene like at the airport, but there was definitely a buzz in the air. Tomorrow Vicente Fernandez will be in town. I'll make sure to keep my eyes peeled.
