SAN ANTONIO, TX – Mark Weber, the San Antonio-based hellraising iconoclast known to friends, fans, and foes alike as “El Tacuache” has released his fifth studio album, titled Free Tacos Mañana…y Otras Mentiras on Rancho Alegre Records.
Along with the title track, in honor of his fellow veterans on Veterans Day, Weber is releasing the single “Paracaidistas,” a bilingual ranchera dedicated to paratroopers.
When he’s not needling long-suffering Dallas Cowboys fans on Facebook, playing softball, roller skating, hauling junk, playing accordion at San Martin de Porres church, or taking over the airwaves on KEDA radio in San Antonio, Weber can be found entertaining crowds far and wide with his unique combination of humor, showmanship, talent, and heart.
In between all of that, sometimes, Weber writes songs. Of the 12 tracks on this album, ten are “El Tacuache” originals, solidifying Weber as one of Conjunto’s most prolific songwriters. Not only that, but his songs also carry on the tradition of folks like Wally Gonzalez and the late, great Nick Villarreal, offering a humorous take on life.
This album is a capirotada of styles from straight-ahead Conjunto to old-time rock and roll to country to cumbia, and more. Also included is a healthy dose of self-deprecating humor, odes to San Antonio icons, social commentary, and even a Weird Al Yankovic-style parody. For a bilingual transplant from Ohio who learned to play the accordion from Valerio Longoria and was inducted into the Tejano ROOTS hall of Fame in 2018, this just makes sense.
Free Tacos Mañana…y Otras Mentiras is available on CD and on all digital platforms.
