If you live in Austin or read Austin Vida, you know Maneja Beto. The pioneers of “Indie-en-Espanol” in Austin, Tejas, Maneja Beto are crossbred from Talking Heads and Cafe Tacvba. If your read my blog or read my stuff here on Austin Vida, you already now how much I love these dudes. The entire staff love these dudes. They are the emblematic band for the 21st century Austin Latino. The band is performing in support of their latest album Escante Calling which received mad press from many national tastemakers including NPR. The indie Tejanos are ready to make some more (non-Latino) fans and provide a friendly reminder to Fun Fun Fun Fest attendees that Latin indie exists in Austin.
Watch Maneja Beto perform their song “Cumbia de las bombas” at Mohawk below.
See Maneja Beto perform at Fun Fun Fun Fest at the orange stage on Saturday, November 5, at 12:10pm.
