There’s nothing like being out in L.A. on a nice, warm and sunny day, patiently waiting for your favorite band to take the stage. You’ve got a cerveza in your hand as you catch up with old friends who, like you, are ready to dance their hearts away; that’s exactly what took place on Saturday, October 11th at the Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall. Powered by Toyota in association with Cookman, Goldenvoice, Nacional Records, KCRW, and countless others, Supersonico has emerged as the new indoor/outdoor Music Festival catering to the multi-lingual and multi-genre group of music fanatics within the Latin community and you don’t even need to know the language to understand its’ importance. I’m sorry, but if you’re looking for a J-Lo or Pitbull concert, this isn’t the festival for you. From musicians expressing their political views backed by hip-hop beats to artists making conscious statements through the strumming of their guitars, Supersonico has made it obvious that Latin music will always have a substantial part in raising awareness in our communities through sound and voice, while over-all making it fun and entertaining for all ages to enjoy.
Here are some of the photos I captured at this year’s Supersonico. For more information on the event: Supersonico
