[3/13] Preview: Nacional Records & Friends official SXSW showcase

Nacional Showcase Mar 13 Thursday, Mar. 13, U.S.- based Latin Alternative record label Nacional Records will present their official South by Southwest (SXSW) showcase at The Palm Door on 6th. The (almost) annual showcase will include four of the label’s official SXSW artists along with two “friends” in the Latin Alternative scene. Two of their artists are household names to many in Austin while the other two are familiar faces from other popular bands you’re likely to recognize.

The showcase headliners include Mexican electronic DJ duo Nortec Collective’s Bostich + Fussible and the multi-Grammy nominated Ana Tijoux from Chile. Both are previous SXSW performers and Pachanga Fest alumni. Tijoux is performing in support of her upcoming album, Vengo, which will be released on Mar. 18.

The other two Nacional artists on the showcase include Thievery Corporation’s touring vocalist, Natalia Clavier. Her critically-acclaimed solo album Lumen was produced by Austin-based producer Adrian Quesada (former Grupo Fantasma, Brownout). AJ Davila, frontman of Puerto Rican garage rock icons Davila 666, is performing in support of his Nacional records released solo album, Terror Amor.

LA-based singer-songwriter Irene Diaz and Puerto Rican indie-pop faves Fofé Y Los Fetiches round out the bill. The Palm Door on 6th is located at 508 E. 6th Street. Doors open at 8 p.m. Nacional Records is providing free t-shirts and other giveaways to those who arrive early while supplies last. This showcase is available to those with SXSW badges and wristbands. If capacity allows, non-badge holders can pay a cover at the door which is TBD. Visit the official Facebook event page here.
