Guah, bah, ah whao, yeah, hizzah!

When something rules this much, such as this newly announced lineup, my excitement will transfer those convoluted brain cells into verbal/written gibberish, —  um, yeah. But I’ll tell ya something, and this makes perfect sense — each day, more and more, Austin is rocking my world, and surely SXSW is only one week away. But you know what else is happening in that ‘other’ US music capital? Okay, no brainer, the title is a giveaway, duh — the Pachanga Festival! Happening on May 11th and 12 in Fiesta Gardens. Abuelita de batman!

The MULTI-Grammy winners and the most imaginative ballsy duo Calle 13 make their debut in Austin, also performing, French/Chilean hip hop poetess Ana Tijoux, emo indiegrrrls Girl In A Coma, Chile’s cumbia acida master Chico Trujillo, LA’s cutie pies La Santa Cecilia, Afro-Latin big funky band Brownout, and lots of local, national, and international will be rocking, singing, rhyming, dancing, spitting, and conquering stages, and of course serenading audiences.
