Check out Systema Solar, Callate Mark, Buscabulla and more.
The crowd at the Latin Alternative Music Conference has always been as curious and eclectic as the artists who perform at the annual New York City summer event, and this year’s lineup won’t disappoint those looking for new and different sounds. Here are five artists to watch at this week’s LAMC.
Systema Solar pumps up the typical Afro-Colombian sound system with a barrage of good dance vibes from the Caribbean coast and beyond. This musical magnet is sure to draw a spontaneous crowd at SummerStage in Central Park when they perform tonight (Wed. July 8).
The fact that Callate Mark is named after a song by Buenos Aires’ great eighties anarchist band Sumo would be enough motivation to check out this group of young Argentine upstarts. Their energetic retro rock sound and the stage (and video) appeal of lead singer Tadeo Luna and his mates are two more reasons to catch them Wednesday at the Highline Ballroom and Thursday at the LAMC acoustic showcase at SOBs
