Each year we attend the Latin Alternative Music Conference with one major goal in mind: to discover as much new music as possible. This year, a lot of our favorites are returning to the annual music party, including Mexican songstress Julieta Venegas, alternative cutie Natalia Lafourcade, and Barcelona’s electro-rockers the Pinker Tones, who are not to be missed. However, keep an eye out for LAMC newcomers such as Mexican indie pop-rock band Torreblanca, Caracas rockers Viniloversus, and Chilean electro-pop band Astro. And tonight, catch the free Summerstage showcase in Central Park with three captivating female singer-songwriters: Lila Downs, Natalia Clavier, and Pamela Rodriguez. Through Sunday, for a full lineup, panel schedule, locations, and admission, visit

Thursdays-Sundays, noon. Starts: July 11. Continues through July 14, 2013
