LAMC 2007 Bands + Upcoming Shows

Edited July 8: I added some in-store sets happening at the Apple Store (Soho). You can also go to the official LAMC site for full show + panel details – click the “schedule” tab.

I was at the LAMC site and they have a graphic that gives the acts that have confirmed for the conference. This includes Café muthafuckin Tacuba! Me voy a desmayar!!!!! I can’t figure out the details for when they’re playing—in fact, I can’t find the details for a lot of the bands. But here is what I’ve figured out so far. I’m sure these details are bound to change, since the conference is still a couple of months away. Also, I got no clue which shows are open to reg’lar folks and which are just for badge-holders and GMI’s (Gente Muy Importante). I would appreciate it if anyone could help me out in fleshing out this list. I’m just praying to god los Tacubos play at Central Park for free.

A note to most of these bands: your MySpace pages are disgusting. They’re cluttered, poorly laid out, completely impossible to navigate. These pages are supposed to have pertinent info for crying out loud, especially if you don’t have a real website! So get your shit together and make it a little less offensive to your visitors’ eyes.

ALSO KEEP IN MIND…

Los Amigos Invisibles are playing at the Bowery Ballroom this Saturday (May 12); Todosantos are opening!! Venezuela’s best, though apparently Todosantos moved to NYC!

Balún are playing at Pianos May 22 and at Crash Mansion. I actually like Arturo en el Barco, which is the solo project of one of the band members in Balún. Her name is Angélica. I guess she’s more busy with Balún though.

And don’t forget Manú Chao is playing at Prospect Park on June 26 and June 27. Not a free show though.
