Los Amigos Invisibles, the New York City-based sextet will be joined by La Vida BohÃ©me, the fast-rising alternative/punk rock band, who kicked off their already impressive career with a GRAMMYÂ® nomination from their debut album â€œNuestraâ€ in the category of â€˜Best Latin Pop, Rock, Or Urban Albumâ€™.
A night which cannot be missed, tickets are already on sale at www.congaroom.com. The Conga Room is located at 800 West Olympic Boulevard, Los Angeles, 90015.
Los Amigos Invisibles are currently nominated for a GRAMMYÂ® for â€˜Best Latin Pop, Rock, Or Urban Albumâ€™ for their Nacional Records release â€œNot So Commercialâ€ on Nacional Records.
Los Amigos Invisibles were originally discovered by David Byrne in a Manhattan record shop. The multi-dimensional disco funk stars signed with Luaka Bop moved to New York City from their native Venezuela and soon established themselves in the dance music scene with their elevated grooves.Â Los Amigos have appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and played major festivals including Coachella, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza.Â The band won their first career Latin GRAMMYÂ® in 2009 with an acclaimed studio album, â€œCommercialâ€ (Nacional Records).Â
Exploding from the thriving underbelly of the underground alternative music scene of Venezuela, La Vida BohÃ©me is making their mark in the United States. The rock bandâ€™s debut album, â€œNuestraâ€, is a pulsating release that offers eleven of the most amped up, dance inducing tracks to come out of South America. With influences, like The Ramones and LCD Soundsystem, combined with a love for punk and dance music, La Vida BohÃ©meÂ is addictive and fun, yet socially conscious, with its many references to the realities of life in the urban landscape of their native Caracas.
La Vida BohÃ©me, formed by Rafael Perez, Daniel De Sousa, Sebastian Ayala, and Henry D’Arthenay in late 2006 and mid 2007. The band takes influence from late ’80s punk, disco, funk, electronic music, jazz, salsa, reggae and dance music. La Vida BohÃ©me is Henry Dâ€™Arthenay (guitar and lead singer), Rafael PÃ©rez (bass guitar and vocals), and Daniel de Sousa (guitar and vocals) SebastiÃ¡n Ayala (drummer and vocals). The name comes from â€˜La Bohemeâ€™ an opera by Giacomo Puccini.
