LAMC 2010 Lineup

This has to be one of the hottest lineups in the 11 editions of the Latin Alternative Music Conference, aka the Latin-Alt event of the year. No festival brings as much attention from major media and no one brings as many fans. In fact, in the past two years since our blog has been around, we see our site traffic sky-rocket during the weeks around the conference (including our link on the New York Times), we seem to be a good source for many of the up and coming bands in the showcase. This year is particularly exciting as New York will welcome some truly exciting bands like El Guincho, Toy Selectah, Los Punsetes, Furland , Los Rakas and La Bien Querida.

Last year your CF editor did a piece for the LAMC guidebook on our favorite blogs out there, this year, I’m back with another piece on the 12 Twitter profiles any Latin Alternative fan should be following. Make sure to grab a book and as always, look around for the LAMC’s awesome compilation discs, they’re always fun. Act smart and take advantage of the $99 registration fee, register here.
