In order to prepare for the Latin Alternative Music Conference here's an overview of some of the acts. Some are staples, some are "need to know" artists, but all of them will be reppin' Latin Alternative in one of the greatest cities on earth: New York City.
Wednesday, July 9 8:00pm - 1:00am
LAMC/GoTV Indie Showcase @ The Mercury Lounge (217 E Houston St.)
Co-Presented by Gibson, Discmakers, and Myspace Latino
Hailing from Hialeah, Florida, the boys from Guajiro came from Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Long Beach to perform their mix of classic rock, '77 English punk, and 80s Latin rock to bring energy and soul back to the music industry. The band hopes to create lasting albums and bring their fans "honest, straight to the point, no bullshit music." The band performs in English, Spanish, or a combination of both.
Their recent single, "Ole" was not only used as the Latin American Soccer anthem but also as a means to put their support behind 2008 presidential candidate, Barack Obama.
