Latin Alternative Music Conference 2013
Each year, the Latin Alternative Music Conference assembles the best and brightest representatives of Latin indie rock, hip-hop, electronic, alt folklorico and more for an almost weeklong series of workshops, speeches, panels and, especially, performances. For label heads, PR reps, journalists, managers, etc., it's a networking smorgasbord. But for everyone else -- even those of us who can't make it to New York for this year's -- the LAMC's performance lineup offers a thrilling opportunity to learn about some fresh new voices and is a pretty awesome excuse to revisit the oeuvre of beloved Latin alt faves. This year's wide-ranging roster includes Julieta Venegas, La Vida Bohème, Mexican Institute of Sound, War and Fat Joe! In other words, it makes for a killer playlist.
