If you’re looking to catch a great band outside of your listening comfort zone this year at SXSW, may we suggest Jumbo from Monterrey, MX?
With 5 albums in their catalogue and a live show that highlights hit after hit, these seasoned veterans make the trek back to SXSW to showcase new songs.
They will be performing at the Ghost Room on Thursday, March 17th for one of BMI’s official showcases. They are the only latin alternative band in this particular showcase and are sure to impress an audience unfamiliar with their sound.
We caught a performance by Jumbo this past August in Los Angeles and were thoroughly impressed by how solid the 14 year old band still sounds. We had also forgotten about the many great songs in their repertoire. “Pequeño gran rockstaaaarr…”
You will definitely want to check out Jumbo this year, as well as all things BMI, at SXSW.
Here’s a little taste of their new material:
