So I’m dragging the family to see Chicha Libre and Dengue Fever play Northampton tonight. You might recall (or you might not), that I interviewed Olivier Conan about his Peruvian-influenced Chicha Libre a little while ago for PopMatters (Link: http://www.popmatters.com/pm/feature/52753/now-hear-this-chicha-libre-new-york/)
There’s a Chicha Libre radio performance from WYNC here, if you’d like to hear for yourself:
What do they look like? Like this:
I know far less about Dengue Fever except that a) they are from LA, b) the bass player is also in Radar Brothers and c) the singer is Cambodian.
So, how about a video, eh?
