Latin Sounds in Far Out Places

By: Taylor Wallace

Iffin ya haven’t heard, a new venue popped up in far South Austin this year. What used to be a small, hole-in-the-wall bar that served as the last stop for bikers on the way to San Antonio decades ago is now The Far Out Lounge: a sick, down-to-Earth bar and venue near South Congress and Slaughter Lane. Covert Curiosity Founder Lawrence Boone curates a variety of sounds down in this new South Austin haunt, and tonight the line-up is steeped in Latin sounds. Latin psych-rock band Los Alcos shares the stage with Nemegata, who bring their own blend of cumbia, psych, and desert blues. The night kicks off with a DJ set by Group Fantasma, Brownout, and Money Chicha founder Greg Gonzalez. The fun begins at 8 tonight at The Far Out Lounge in South Austin. Get a taste of what your soul and zapatos de baile are in for below!
