Many bands & artists are planning on tours in 2022 & that includes artists in the El Paso music scene. As a musician myself, I love seeing hard working musicians play to huge crowds at home but I really love seeing bands go on the road to make something of themselves. March will be the start of a mini-tour around the southwest for two local bands: Villains Kiss & The 1-800.

To say the bands are excited is an understatement as quoted by Villains Kiss lead singer David Delgado: "One of my main goals has always been to elevate our region & highlight our local community. Villains Kiss is honored to have this opportunity to represent our city to audiences across the US & we can't think of a better group to join us on this journey... The 1-800"

Both bands have been really making names for themselves in the EP scene:

Amano isn't the only El Paso show on the tour: They'll be playing again at the Love Buzz before setting off to play in various shows around Arizona, California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada & Utah.
