The Latin Alternative Music Conference is fast approaching and thankfully I'll not only be traveling along with [.DESCARGA.] for a live performance out there, but I've also been lucky enough to be included, along with Anthony Macias, for some of our own music selecting at the event. The showcase, which features Kofre from NY, Cojoba from Puerto Rico, Espantapajaros from Houston (yeah!), Rebel Society from Miami, Don Quixote from DC and Urbenprima from Florida, along with Chicago representation from us, takes place on opening night of the LAMC, Wednesday, July 6th, 2011.
The venue, D'Antigua, is located in Queens at 84-16 Northern Boulevard, a quick hop, skip and train ride out from our midtown Manhattan location. After our performance we'll be back to start our Thursday morning with some of the best information any music aficionado, especially those looking to work in this industry, could possibly receive. Featuring leading artists as well as many of the music industry’s most prominent decision-makers, the highly-anticipated 12th Annual Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC) is a “must play” event for developing and established acts alike. The artists for this summer's Central Park SummerStage and Celebrate Brooklyn showcases range from Mexican indie rock sensation Hello Seahorse! and Dominican electro merengue act Rita Indiana to Afro-Colombian hip hop act Choc Quib Town and Los Angeles’ rock legends Los Lobos. There's still time to sign up. Visit www.LatinAlternative.com for details on the panels taking place, the entire line-up of artists and to sign up.
On Saturday, the 9th, we'll be leaving one of my favorite cities ever, and heading back early so that Anthony Macias and I can participate as DJs that evening at Double Door where Hello Seahorse! will be performing. (Visit RatioNation.com for tickets to that.)
Best. Summer. Ever.
These are some of the artists we'll be spending some time with in New York City:
