Metal Warriors in Oaxaca City
First up is this small little shop called Metal Warriors that is located just south of the Zocalo. It is mostly t-shirts and other metal paraphernalia, but the shop does have a small but well chosen selection of Mexican metal CDs, and a few cassettes. The owner of the shop, Edgar, was nice enough to talk to me for a while and play me several different discs of modern Mexican metal. One thing I have been trying to do while living in Mexico is learn more about some of the obscure bands that rarely get noticed. I found a couple CDs I had been looking for, and learned about a few others, which is material for a separate post. Edgar also organizes metal shows in Oaxaca, in case you happen to be there long term.
If you happen to go to Oaxaca City and like metal, check out the shop. It is located at Trujano 301, between J.P. Garcia and Diaz Ordaz.
