(8/11) Preview: Gran Sonido Music Group showcase at Flamingo Cantina

Gran Sonido Music Group (GSMG) is an Austin based music collective that aims to help musicians and bands promote, book and connect with other entities that  may be of assistance with other musical services. Although GSMG’s initial focus was to help the local Latin music scene, the collective is open to all genres of music and talent. On Thursday, August 11, GSMG will be presenting a showcase at Flamingo Cantina.

Austin’s Latin Fusion group Este Vato opens the night’s showcase. The group has been impressing fans old and new since 2008. Originally a five piece, the group has recently added a new horn section to round out their already exceptional live show. Currently performing in support of their self-titled debut, Este Vato take the stage at 9:30pm.

The night’s other performers include Austin’s Higher Than Why (10:30pm), Eons Ago (11:30pm) and Bloody Knives (12:30pm). Doors open at 9:00pm. Cover is $5. Flamingo Cantina is located at 515 E. 6th Street. 21+ are welcome. Visit the official Facebook event page here and on Do512 here.
