Sunset 7 Latin Rock Showcase at the Vagabond

Well, downtown Miami is not known for its Latin rock flavorings, but this coming Sunday at the Vagabond there will be a nice showcase of local talent that falls into that Latin rock category, albeit with each act adding its own spices and roots; from the straightforward rock to the electro-tinged to hints of salsa and cumbia. Dance music if you will. The press junket says the show will take place in the patio, which is not a good idea in my opinion since bands tend to sound a little tinny and flat out there, but I guess they'll be taking advantage of the early doors and the dying light. On the roster will be Odas, the guitar-stylings of Leo Ortegon, the rock of Mala Morticia (formerly Tercer Sur), local splash-makers Origen and Atajos. DJ Jz Garzia will deliver the sounds between sets and though I cannot guarantee that you'll be witnessing the next Aterciopelados, Soda Stereo or Los Enanitos Verdes, for seven bucks cover and some nice weather, you could do worse for a Sunday afternoon. Check out a video of Origen doing "Coexiste" after the jump.

Sunset 7 Latin Rock Showcase featuring Odas, Leo Ortegon, Serenata 3, Mala Morticia, Origen and Atajos on Sunday, April 11th at The Vagabond, 30 NE 14 St., Miami. Doors open at 6 p.m., tickets cost $7. Ages 21+ with ID. 305-379-0508; www.thevagabondmiami.com
