South by Southwest (SXSW) announced today that Mexican Latin Alternative icons Café Tacvba will be making their SXSW debut at Auditorium Shores on Thursday, Mar. 14. This year the Thursday show at Auditorium Shores is presented by NPR. Rounding out what could be the best Latin Alternative showcase SXSW has ever seen are fellow Mexicans Molotov and the South American electrotango collective Bajofondo.
Café Tacvba is performing in support of their latest album, El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco (The Object Previously Called an Album), which was a fall 2012 release and their first since 2007. The group first captured the attention of Latin music fans during the Rock en Español movement of the ’90s with their diverse genre blending and unique sound. Café Tacvba is currently signed to Universal Music Mexico.
The Mar. 14 Auditorium Shores showcases is free to the public. No wrist band needed. Lineups for Friday and Saturday shows are TBD. Gates open at 4 p.m. More details available on the official SXSW website here.
