Best of 2000: Best Hispanic Headbanger Bands

Club Sevilla

Where can one find imported hard rockers with the kitsch and clothes of '80s hair bands like Warrant, Ratt, and Poison? Club Sevilla serves up a metal mix stirred with salsa each Monday for a diverse crowd of dancers and drinkers. Bands such as General Humano and Liquido are more Metallica than Mötley Crüe, but the atmosphere and fashion, both on-stage and off, is freeze-framed somewhere around 1985 with red leather pants, pink miniskirts, poodle haircuts on boys, and fur-trimmed boots. Munchies from Cafe Sevilla include tapas and paella. Admission is $5.
