Los Amigos Invisibles got their big break into the mainstream music market in 1996, when David Byrne came across their album in a New York City record shop. He quickly signed the group, with its infectious blends of Latin rhythms, disco, funk, and acid jazz, to his Luka Bop label. They released several albums on the label, consistently earning critical acclaim, including multiple Grammy awards. The band launched its own label, Gozadera Records, in the mid 2000’s; simultaneously, they began refocusing their song structure and producing more accessible tracks. Their latest album, Repeat After Me, is a testament to their musical evolution and their current status as truly global musicians.
Brooklyn singer/songwriter Xenia Rubinos is receiving rave reviews for her edgy album, Magic Trix, earning her a showcase at SXSW and features in publications like NPR and Fader. Her undeniable energy and “aggressive” dance tracks, not to mention her strong, soulful voice, make her a perfect supporting talent for Los Amigos Invisible. For the SOB’s show on August 8th, be sure to wear your dancing shoes- you won’t stop moving for either act.
