“Metalachi” at the CAVE

Feb 11, 2017 | 06:30PM – 10:00PM

On a hot, hot summer night in Veracruz Mexico circa 1982, Consuela Espinoza stumbled out of her dilapidated shanty and into Rock N Roll history. What began as an innocent night of snorting horse tranquilizers in a hotel room with seven members of the village jai alai team went on to produce the greatest metal band to ever live. Unhampered by a steady regime of tequila and ill advised sumo lessons, nine months later five bastard children where born. Unable to care for her hungry offspring and concerned that motherhood would seriously interfere with her Tuesday night Karaoke league, Consuela hastily packed the babies into the saddlebags of a burro and sent her children off to America in search of a better life.

Against all odds, 14 years later, and nearly dead from dehydration, the burro knelt down to drink from the stagnant waters of the Rio Grande just outside of Juarez Mexico –mere yards from the U.S. border. With one fleeting burst of energy the brothers Espinoza cinco climbed from their leather restraints and scampered the vast reach of the river, collapsing onto the sweet amber hue of American soil. As if by destiny, lodged in the sand beneath their tanned faces was a record sleeve upon which were the words “PARANOID” and “BLACK SABBATH”. For many years to follow, this definitive black metal album served not only as a teacher and a mentor..but also as a friend. From these bleak and humble begins grew the seed that would eventually be the band we know today. Often referred to as the greatest heavy metal band to ever live..always referred to as…METALACHI.

The Cave is a new, intimate music venue in Big Bear that promises to bring you up close and personal with its performers. Doors open at 6:30pm; opening act featuring “The Gary Watson Band” at 7:30pm, “The Stranger” makes his debut 8:30-9pm. Call or visit website for ticket information.

Snow in SpringWe have had some pretty wild weather the last couple of weeks here in Big Bear Lake, but that is pretty normal for this time of the year. Springtime in the mountains is both beautiful and unpredictable. Our unsettled weather is not over yet, with showers expected this weekend and possibly next weekend as well. Do not let that deter you from planning a visit, though! The storms this time of year generally pass through pretty quickly and leave behind fresh, clean air and a forest renewed!

This spring, be sure to visit the Big Bear Discovery Center for several FREE activities that the whole family will enjoy. This weekend, be sure to catch Big Bear High School’s production of Tarzan onstage at the Performing Arts Center. The show is getting fantastic reviews and they even have a live band performing the music! Check out the flyer below for more on these activities and other things to do in Big Bear this weekend.

Here at RS Vacations, we are continuing our Spring Specials which means you can enjoy all Big Bear has to offer at the lowest pricing of the year! Head over to our website at RSVacations.net for all the details and book a Big Bear Cabin today! See you soon!!
