Earlier this month one of my favorite Latin Alternative groups, Monte Negro, played their Texas leg of their current tour. Monte Negro is touring to support their latest EP, Fugitives of Pleasure & Pasajeros. Some of my Austin Vida crew and I caught them in San Antonio this time instead of Austin because of our different schedules. It was a great show as always and they got to play to an audience who seemed unfamiliar with them. It was like a Los Lonely Boys crowd at a Monte Negro show if you know what I mean. Still, plenty of people bought their CD(s) and shirts. That was good to see them get that support.
Also while we were there, we interviewed Monte Negro for an Austin Vida video feature. You can see the full interview with live footage from the show on the homepage of Austin Vida. We talk to the guys about the new album and about where they see themselves in the future.
Here's a live clip from that show to check out from our Austin Vida YouTube Channel. Here Monte Negro performs their new single of their Pasajeros EP, "Loco Por Tu Amor".
