My four-part video tour of El Chopo, Mexico City's weekly metal flea market

Mon, 07/08/2017 - 03:23

I went again yesterday to El Chopo, Mexico City's weekly metal flea market. And, as usual, I documented it on video. But, taking into consideration the feedback I've got in the past from T-Shirt Slayer members, comments on previous videos, and from various other people, I went a bit more in-depth this time. Four parts!

Woa, very nice place!!!


LOL .....'my first James Hetfiled comment of the day' ..hahaha....ull keep up hearing that for the next years ..still..i bet my ass...LOL

great videos!!! fantastic..like always :)

oh..and again: this market is unbelieveable......UNBELIEVEABLE


Thanks! And I had seven "James Hetfield!" comments that day!


im not surprised..haha.., btw..last week i was reading a Interview with Tankard in a print-mag here..and even they were talking about this Merch-bootleg-paradise ;) lol


Great videos! Thanks for sharing!


Right on!


Seriously great vids again, though i would go broke in these markets they also look like the sort of place that you could walk around without money and still be entertained and enjoy your time as there is alot of interesting things going on, i like that fact it looks like an easy going place and like you say "a sense of community".


Right on, thanks Rusty. Yeah, it's a must for any metal fan, whether you buy anything or not. I think I did go once and came away empty-handed, but it was still cool to walk around. Maybe part of the fun is going from one stand to another, looking for the shirt you want, in your size.


Thanks man.


Right on!


Good stuff.


Right on, thanks!


Bro next time you go there let me know and we have a couple of beers together, im buying /,,/


Right on! Next time will be Oct. 28! My best friend of 32 years is coming for a visit from Toronto to see Paul McCartney that day (and Gene Simmons on Oct. 30), and he said he really wants to see El Chopo.

Good shit man! I just spent 40 min watchin your videos. I love your poster collection.


Ah, thanks! Yeah, the posters are an ongoing project. I've got two more new ones since I did that video (Black Sabbath 2013, and Metallica 2017, both Mexico City, and as always, I was at both shows). I feature them on my Instagram, if you ever want to check them out (https://www.instagram.com/danbowskimexico/)


Have heard this place very nice to see videos. Maybe it was some old punk zine where was story about Mexican punk movement.


Great work, great report, you've outdone yourself !! :)


Thanks, Antonio!
