On Saturday (November 7), Wahaca hosted a one-day festival at London’s Tobacco Dock to celebrate the Day Of The Dead. As well as street food and tequila, the day featured a host of bands, including Mexrrissey, Savages and The Horrors.
Mexrrissey, a Mexican tribute to Morrissey, were one of the first acts to play at Wahaca's Day Of The Dead one-dayer, held at London's Tobacco Dock.
Crowds struggled to get into the tent to hear the seven-piece band tackle the Mozfather's back catalogue with a twist. The whole performance featured songs by the musician, but covered in a Latino style.
Songs like 'Every Day Is Like Sunday' and 'Panic' were given Mariachi makeovers, led by musicians Camilo Lara and Sergio Mendoza.
Savages used the festival as an opportunity to showcase new material from their forthcoming second album 'Adore Life'. During their set, they played four new songs, including new single 'The Answer'.
Stickswoman Fay Milton drummed up a storm as her bandmates brought dramatic production and ferocious riffs to Tobacco Dock.
Frontwoman Jehnny Beth worked hard to unite the crowd of hardcore fans and curious onlookers, high-fiving the front rows and diving into the mosh pit during 'Hit Me'.
Other new songs shared in the set included 'Sad Person' and 'TIWYG', which saw Beth chanting "This is what you get when you mess with love" over a whopping groove.
As is now tradition at Savages' gigs, the Anglo-French band closed their 11-song set with the fiery 'Fuckers', one of the highlights of their 2013 debut album 'Silence Yourself'.
The Horrors played their first UK gig since August, using the event as a warm-up for their run of dates supporting Alt-J on their arena tour later this month.
The band got into the spirit of the festival, painting their faces like the sugar skulls linked to the Mexican celebration of the Day Of The Dead.
The London band have been in the studio recording their fifth album lately, but on Saturday they delved deep into their back catalogue, playing tracks from 2009's 'Primary Colours', 2011's 'Skying' and last year's 'Luminous'.
