[11/22] Preview: Sonidero Travesura, Bombasta and Como Las Movies at Flamingo Cantina

Sonidero TravesuraTonight’s show at Flamingo Cantina on 6th will be one of the best Latin Alternative concerts to take place this year in Austin. For one night only, Austin heepsters will feel a little like they are at a neighborhood cumbia party in Tijuana thanks to the electro-cumbia stylings of headliners Sonidero Travesura.

Composed of members Dardin Coria (keyboardist) and Omar Lizarraga (drums), the group began as the experimental prog-rock group, Casa Wagner. As Sonidero Travesura, the group perform electronic fused music inspired by the tropical party-atmosphere of the sonideros they encountered while spending time in Mexico City. Sonidero Travesura is performing in support of their latest release, El Tigre Digital.

Support comes from San Antonio’s barrio big band, Bombasta. Austin-based electro-cumbia fusionists Como Las Movies, featuring former members of Maneja Beto, open the show.

Flamingo Cantina is located at 515 East 6th Street. Doors open at 9 p.m. Music at 10 p.m. 21+ welcome. $8 cover. Visit the Facebook event page here.
