The Latin Grammys are right around the corner once again with this year's big show set for Thursday, November 11 in Las Vegas. And while you might not make it out to Sin City for all that catch the action as Vegas fills up with nominees and top acts -- including Camila, Jorge Drexler, Juan Luis Guerra, Alejandro Sanz, Alex Cuba, Kany Garcia, Prince Royce, and Placido Domingo, who's being honored as the Person of the Year -- that doesn't mean you can't partake of the festivities surrounding Latin Music's greatest gala.
The brilliant marketing minds at the Latin Recording Academy are bringing the party to your doorstep with their Latin Grammy Street Party series, gearing up one city at a time en-route to the big dance in November. It all started yesterday in Chi-town and hits Dallas on Sunday, September 17, and then L.A. on September 24, and finally Vegas on November 7 to kick off the official Latin Grammy festivities.
Oh yeah, and there'll be a little shindig right here in the MIA this coming Sunday.
Latin Grammy Street Party with Tito El Bambino, Los Tres de Habana, Eddy K, and Cosculluela. City of Progress, West 16th Ave., Hialeah. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. Watch out for Crossfade's Cosculluela Q&A later this week.
