LAMC 2017 Indie Showcase Announced

We are proud to announce the latest LAMC showcase. Joining us this year onThursday, July 13th at the Highline Ballroom are A.CHAL, Jesse Baez, Javiera Mena, Juan Ingaramo, Audri Nix, and Indios.

Since his debut EP Ballroom Riots, Peruvian-born and New York/Los Angeles bred singer, songwriter, and producer A.CHAL has been patiently biding his time. With the support and coverage from the likes of The Fader, Remezcla, and Noisey among many others, his impressive debut album Welcome to GAZI, the noteworthy video for “Round Whipping,” and his growing touring history, A.CHAL is surely an artist to watch for in 2017.

Jesse Baez is an R&B enthusiast born in Chicago, raised in Guatemala, and currently living in Mexico City, who, at an early age, was exposed to the sounds of Motown. He found his voice through collaborations with different artists and producers. In early 2016, Jesse released his debut EP B A E Z, a collection of seven songs that rapidly positioned him as one of the most relevant new artists of the year.

Since her first release, Esquemas Juveniles, Javiera Mena jumped onto the scene bringing attention to the upbeat sounds of a new generation. The singer, songwriter, and producer has continued with a budding career. Since her debut, she has released 4 critically-acclaimed albums full of electro-pop and has also gained international awards and nominations – including a Latin GRAMMY nomination for “Otro Era.”

Juan Ingaramo is an Argentinian singer-songwriter and producer who has participated in the recordings and live shows of artists and producers such as Adrian Dargelos (Babasónicos) and Didi Gutman (Brazilian Girls) among many others. His latest record,Músico, shows Juan Ingaramo’s influence on Argentina’s lyric-oriented pop.

Named on several “2017 Latin Artists to Watch” lists, including Pandora, Latina, and mitú, Puerto Rican artist Audri Nix is set to make her mark. Known for her unique style of soft sensual melodies over infectious lyrics, it’s no surprise the rising star has garnered attention from leading publications such as Vibe, Noisey, Nylon, and Remezcla following the release of her 2016 debut EP Niña de Oro.

With a heavy brit-pop influence, the young Argentinian band Indios performed at many festivals and shows before releasing their debut album. They are now recognized as one of the up-and-coming bands in Argentina’s rock scene and have released several albums, including their recent release Asfalto.

The acoustic showcase is also back this year at SOBs with Alex Anwandter, Jesse Baez, ÌFÉ, Javiera Mena, Nora Norman, Síndrome Moscow, Beatrice Inferno, and Buyepongo.

As always, we’re hoping to do our part to help expand what people think when they think Latin music. No matter the genre.
