As the night continued, the stage was made ready to receive one of the bands which has managed to top the charts in Radio all across the country, it was time to give welcome to the band from Monterrey, “A Band of Bitches”, which characterizes itself for being a group were all the members wear masks, with personalities unknown since they never show their faces, which creates a certain curiosity about their members. However it is known that Jonas Gonzalez, current vocalist for Plastilina Mosh is the one who started the project.
The “Giant Ball” of CECUT was witness to the energy Tijuana gave out with their dancing and every song that was sung along to, especially when the band played the song “Noroeste Caliente” (Hot Northwest), the song they used to close the evening.
It was in this manner that “A Band of Bitches” was the one who closed out the 9th edition of “Entijuanarte 2013”, this cultural party which is now a tradition which is made year after year in the city of Tijuana, Baja California.
