What an incredible year and career for Austin’s funkiest, hardest working and biggest Latin band, Grupo Fantasma. From the minute they began 2010 at their annual New Year’s Eve concert, held this past January at Mohawk, their wave of accomplishments and milestones kept on coming. Having released what should be in every record of the year conversation last May, El Existential has received critical acclaim from tastemakers and critics alike from every music media outlet imaginable.
Continuing the excitement and success of El Existential’s release, Grupo Fantasma shared the stage at this year’s Pachanga Music Festival with salsa legend Larry Harlow at Fiesta Gardens before hitting the road for a few summer tour dates. Upon returning in August, Grupo played a packed show at Mohawk and the big “Live at the Lake” event on Lake Travis. We have photos of both events on our Austin Vida Facebook here.
Fast forward to this Friday, Nov. 12, Grupo Fantasma will be performing once again at the legendary Antone’s on 5th and Lavaca. This Friday’s show is extra special as it marks the ten year anniversary for Grupo Fantasma. During the show, Grupo will have special guests join them on stage as well as debut their new music video for their single “Montañozo.” Grupo Fantasma will be performing two sets with DJ Chicken George spinning in before, between and after the two sets.
Make sure to arrive early as doors open at 8 p.m. All ages are welcome. Advanced tickets for this show can be purchased here.
