LAMC 2008

Hey dudes, dudettes + others,

LAMC 2008 will take place from Tuesday July 8 to Saturday July 12. You can register starting today. Keep checking back, I’ll try to keep y’all as up to date as possible in terms of panels, bands playing, parties, lo que sea.

Stay fresh,
Elizabeth


UPDATED 8 July: LAMC is on!! And I’m going to almost no shows, can you fucking believe it? I’m a sucka; I paid mad money to see this crazy production of Die Soldaten so I got no money for shows or naught. I’m going to the DJ Showcase cos I already paid for my ticket, and I’m gonna see Julieta my one true love. That’s all.

Previously on 2 July: As noted on NYRemezcla, Miranda! are no longer visiting and now the word on the street is that Emmanuel Horvilleur ain’t coming our way neither. That sucks to the nth power because he definitely caught my attention–hope he comes by NYC soon. False alarm!! He’s coming.

Another thing: the LAMC site still lists that there’s going to be an all-acoustic show at SOB’s, but I only realized recently that it’s not listed on the SOB’s site and Ticketweb doesn’t have a listing. I’m not sure if it was moved to another venue or cancelled altogether.

Amidst all this confusion, I do have some great fucking news. The Kumbia Queers are playing a couple of shows on LAMC week (see below for deets). So y’all should go check ’em out cos I’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about them. Also, since I’m all about spreading rumors, the Kumbia Queers’ myspace says that Circo will be playing the Nacotheque show on 10 July. The flyer for the show does state there is a “Special Secret Band” and Circo are note-worthy enough to be a “Special Secret Band,” pero since I don’t know for sure, as of right now I won’t list it below. Damn, even without Circo I’d love to go to this show, too bad I already bought a ticket for the DJ showcase at SOB’s.

Okay, no more updating this page for me. If you want even more comprehensive listings, go to NYRemezcla (it even lists how to get into shows for free!). Sorry to be such a bum, I promise next year I’ll be more organized! Enjoy yourselves! Don’t drink and drive! Love with a glove! Etc, etc.

PREVIOUS EDITS:

EDIT 16 April: The LAMC site still hasn’t updated its schedule, BUT the Central Park Summerstage folk have finally announced their lineup. Julieta Venegas will be headlining a free show at Central Park on Saturday 12 July, with Plastilina Mosh opening. They’re probably gonna add another act to open, so I’ll be on the lookout for that. Damn!! The show’s gonna be wild as hell! Click here for more details! EDIT 21 April: the other opener for the Central Park show is DJ Bitman. (OMG! A fellow Chileno!) I can’t fucking wait for this show.

EDIT 22 April: The full 2008 lineup for Celebrate Brooklyn is up. They’ve got some great shows! The free show they’ve organized for LAMC is on Friday 11 July, with Brazilian Girls headlining over Miranda!… No dis to Brazilian Girls, but I think it’s a total travesty that Miranda! aren’t the headliners. Oh well. At least they’re coming to NYC!! Also opening is Ticklah. Here‘s all the info for this show, and on the side you should definitely click on the “2008 Season” link, too!

EDIT 5 May: Pacha Massive will play a show on Thursday 10 July at the Bowery Ballroom. On Friday 11 July, Los Amigos Invisibles will play a late show at SOB’s. Tickets are $23 in advance, $25 on the day of show.

EDIT 10 May: LAMC 2008 FULL LINEUP ANNOUNCED

Sorry I’m posting this now, my internet is still fucked. If you want to see the panel topics you should just go to the official site. Here are the bands participating, as well as the day/time/location they are performing. I will try to be as accurate as possible with the info but obviously, things are bound to change, so you should keep checking back. Also, I don’t know exactly which events are only for badge-holders and which ones are open to everyone. In fact, not all of these are official LAMC events.

EDIT 2 July: Made a massive update; some details are still unclear but I tried my hardest to be accurate. Even with a couple of weeks left, lineups are bound to change. Please let me know if anything is off on my list and I will fix it. As I mentioned in a previous post, these are events happening during LAMC week, but some are not official LAMC shows. WTF, Miranda! cancelaron. Más info en Remezcla. They will be replaced by Chicha Libre. I will edit it on the list when I have time (that is, once I get home from work).
