Nacional Records is proud to announce its first-ever official showcase at this year’s SXSW. The label’s showcase will take place March 16 at Maggie’s Mae on Sixth and will feature three of Nacional’s buzzworthy artists – 2012 Grammy nominated La Vida Boheme, newly signed San Francisco indie darlings Loquat and the critically acclaimed collab that is Ritmo Machine – Beastie Boys/Cypress Hill percussionist Eric Bobo and renowned turntablist Latin Bitman.
On top of these three exciting artists, the showcase will also present three special guests – 3BallMTY, Monsieur Perine and Astro. Being #1 on Billbloard, 3BallMTY are a tribal guarachero – indigenous Mexican and African sounds mixed with cumbia basslines – and are sure to make quite an impression on the crowd. Hailing from Colombia, indie rock band Monsieur Perine emanate some eclectic sounds on top of their unique fashions. And making their SXSW debut performance all the way from Chile, Astro will showcase a blend of synthesizer and alternative rock.
Eric Bobo + Latin Bitman are Ritmo Machine.
The show will be open to anyone with a festival badge or wristband.
