Northern California’s Latin Alternative groundbreaking independent band Bang Data was part of the Pachanga Latino Music Festival in May. Their unique blend of Latin fusion is representative of the new sound of San Francisco’s Bay Area eclectic underground scene, much like what we have here in Texas. We saw this first hand at South By Southwest in 2012 at our first Austin Vida day party as Bang Data were feature performers. Since their debut LP, La Sopa, came out independently in March 2012, Bang Data has grown exponentially, placing themselves as the spearheads of a whole new Bay Area-based Latin alternative scene that’s reaching well beyond California.
In the following video Blastro2 video interview, our own Ian Morales sat down at Pachanga Fest with Bang Data frontman Deuce Eclipse and their drummer/producer Caipo. The two discuss with Morales their beginnings, their LP and what’s coming up for the group in the future. If you like bands like Ozomatli, Locos Por Juana or Sargent Garcia, then you will want to check out Bang Data.
