The 10th annual Latin Alternative Music Conference, which runs until Saturday, has been somewhat integrated into this year’s Celebrate Brooklyn Festival and Summerstage series. Tonight, Argentinean art-rock siren Juana Molina headlines a free show at Central Park. The Zizek Club hosts the afterparty at Santos’ Party House, where King Coya, Uproot Andy, and El G spin our favorite new micro-genre: digital cumbia.
The LAMC is also showcasing a host of Spanish-language indie bands at the Mercury Lounge.
The Church’s hits are simple love songs made supermassive by echo chambers and sensationalist titles: Under the Milky Way, Metropolis, Pangaea. The Aussie veterans play Irving Plaza.
Last call for the Handsome Furs, a/k/a the guy from Wolf Parade and the wife he dotes on. The couple will tour abroad through November.
