Brazilian Girls, DJ Bitman, and Ticklah Headline LAMC
- Words: Wyatt Williams
New York City will host the ninth annual Latin Alternative Music Conference this summer from July 8 - 12. Tying together artists who share the Spanish language and sometimes little else, the conference presents a spread of artists both geographically and stylistically diverse.
Highlighting the event are two outdoor concerts: the first in Brooklyn's Prospect Park, featuring New York's own Brazilian Girls, Argentine electro-pop act Miranda!, and the dub sounds of Ticklah, The second show will be in Manhattan's Central Park and will feature DJ Bitman from Chile along with Plastilina Mosh and Julieta Venegas from Mexico.
The event is a major draw for industry-types, as well, who will be attending panel discussions at The Roosevelt Hotel. Nueva York won't be the only location for this meeting of musical minds, though–satellite events will follow in Mexico City and Buenos Aires later this year.
