KID CONGO & PINK MONKEY BIRDS + TIGRE Y DIAMANTE
A psychedelic jungle full of volcanic songs with which you can’t help but move the body. The Pink Monkey Birds go back to their roots by playing the primitive music that always inspired them, creating a cocktail of raw garage, chicano rock, fuzz and bass lines full of soul.
The duet made by Coke Makaha (drummer and voice) and Jon Álvarez (guitarist and voice): Tigre y Diamante. After a long stint in the underground musical scene, these two musicians have met each other to give form to direct songs, primitives in character, that combine pop melodies with a punk envelope.

LAST FAIR DEAL + GUEST ARTIST
Last Fair Deal (Biskay). The power trio locks their energies and influences by drawing the lines of a magic triangle between hard rock, blues and southern rock. They create a live atmosphere, sometimes intimate but always burning, where all the energy is liberated.

SEXY ZEBRAS + APOLO (MX)
Comprised of Jose Luna, Gabriel Montes and Samuel Torío. This young trio from Madrid (Sexy Zebras) got together after the summer of 2005, and hasn’t stopped ever since. An incendiary and politically incorrect rock group with a fresh sound in the national scene.

Apolo is a stoner rock and psychedelic rock band from Chihuahua, Mexico. Made in 2006, they have had a strong acceptance in the Mexican rock scene by the audience and the critics after winning second place at the Vive Cuervo & Roll. The band’s sound is often recognized by being “crushing”, “energetic” and “powerful”, with influences ranging from psychedelic and progressive to heavy metal.

FÉLIX A. LIMAÑA
