|La Secta Allstar still perform at Grand Central on July 16.|
We were impressed by Grand Central
's quiet bookings of some great Latin alternative acts in upcoming months. We say quiet, because while the Poplife-branded events there get a lot of shine (from this blog included), whoever else is behind the scenes has been scheduling some very interesting performers en español
. Recent shows along those lines have included exclusive area performances by Aterciopelados and Los Autenticos Decadentes.
Unfortunately, two of the next biggest Latin shows booked for the venue have been cancelled. Latin Rasta legend Fidel Nadal was scheduled to perform on July 15, and Argentine electro-poppers Miranda were scheduled for July 22. Unfortunately, both shows are off. Refunds are available at point of purchase.
In positive news for Latin music at Grand Central, though, the July 16 show by Puerto Rican greats La Secta Allstar is definitely still on. Even though the band got its early start in Orlando and Miami, this concert marks the first time the band's appeared here since 1997
