Catch the LAMC Indie Showcase Tonight at Mercury Lounge

July 9th, 2014

The 2014 Latin Alternative Music Conference, which brings Latin music to a wider audience, kicked off yesterday, and it continues tonight at Mercury Lounge in full effect with a deep lineup. The psychedelic five-piece El Mató a un Policía (above, performing Mas o Menos Bien), out of La Plata, Argentina, combine raw punk with experimental noise rock, like the Ramones crossed with Sonic Youth. Uruguayan electronic band Santé Les Amis make bouncy music with catchy melodies—and they make their U.S. debut here. Singer-songwriter Caloncho is a study in folk music, and he employs nontraditional instruments. Danay Suarez, straight out of Havana, proves that hip-hop is worldwide, and it goes even where American diplomatic relations do not. Venezuelan trio Los Crema Paraiso mash up their country’s traditional music with funk, jazz, rock and electronica. And the Chilean singer-songwriter Me Llamo (Sebastián) is known for his melodious voice. All in all, it’s a show not to miss.

July 6th, 2011

The Latin Alternative Music Conference, which is geared toward the marketing of Spanish-language alternative music, is going on today through Saturday. Sure, the LAMC provides plenty of networking opportunities, but even better, there’s lots of great music and all different types, like folk, funk, rock and soul. Tonight, Mercury Lounge features Pablo Malaurie, Elastic Bond (above, playing “La Verdad” for Big City Breakdown), Jazzimodo, Poncho, la Vida Boheme and Superlitio, and tomorrow, The Bowery Ballroom hosts No Te Va a Gustar, Diego Garcia, Francisca Valenzuela, Cuarto Poder and Napoleon Solo. Not too shabby.
