Nortec Collective Coming Back to Austin
They were here last year as the headliner for the first Annual Pachanga Fest, but will be performing at Hogg Memorial Auditorium on September 25. To quickly describe Nortec Collective, I'd say they are a fusion of Mexican Norteno and techno. After having seen them live last year, I can honestly say that they do no dissapoint and the accordian player has the most blinged out accordian I've ever seen. It will be an awesome show to say the least. For those of you not familiar with Nortec, check out these two videos and turn it up loud.
