We've got LAMC fever

The Latin Alternative Music Conference is currently taking over New York City, and I couldn’t be happier about it. The party kicked off last night, with a performance by Ana Tijoux at the SoHo Apple Store, and the rest of the week promises to be a mind-blowing lineup of great music and discussion, with acts like La Bien Querida and Los Rakas and panelists like Todd Patrick and Camilo Lara. There is so much to do that I can hardly contain my music nerd self.

Tonight, make sure to catch Nortec Collective Presents: Bostich+Fussible, El Guincho, and Ana Tijoux at the Central Park SummerStage. It's free and open to the public, so you have no excuse. You can also see Moderatto at the SoHo Apple Store and, if you have one of the coveted LAMC badges, you'll want to stop by Mercury Lounge for the LAMC Indie showcase featuring Club Fonograma favorites, Los Punsetes and Furland, among others.

If you’re not in town for the conference, don’t worry. I’ll be keeping you up-to-date on all the LAMC action, so make sure to check back here regularly.
