The battle of Monterrey begins with Festival NRMAL on March 13th. Think Fun Fun Fun Fest getting together for Pachanga Fest for a naughty weekend in Mexico. We all know you've been there and done that. This is an all day thing that has amazing Latin Alternative acts mixed with killer indie bands.
For those of you Latino hipsters, or "Hipspanics", I recommend Chico Sonido, Banda de Turistas, and 60 Tigres. Some of the other bands worth mentioning that I like include Yellow Fever and White Ninja. Either way it will be a good time in Monterrey, my favorite city in Mexico. Buses will be running from Austin and tickets aren't that expensive at all. We posted the full line up and details on Austin Vida here:
