A week ago today, Tr3s -- formerly known as MTV Tr3s -- celebrated its upcoming relaunch by reviving that great MTV franchise, the Unplugged series. While its parent channel long ago gave up on such strictly, uh, music-oriented programming, its foreign spin-offs, notably MTV Latin America, have taken up Unplugged eagerly.
As Crossfade noted here last week, the Latin America series has spawned a number of successful recordings, including Shakira Unplugged, Ricky Martin Unplugged, and Julieta Venegas Unplugged.
Tr3s, MTV's bilingual channel for next-gen U.S. Latinos, hopes to replicate that same success. To kick off its own Unplugged series, the network invited Mexican rockeros Camila to record a small acoustic show here in Miami, at the Paris Theater on South Beach. It was invitation-only, and won't premier until July 12 on Tr3s.com. (It will also air on the actual TV airwaves, on both Tr3s and MTV Latin America, in August.)
