All My Friends: from Tijuana to Brooklyn

AMF MUSIC FESTIVAL 2012 (CARTEL TEASER) from ALL MY FRIENDS on Vimeo.

Hailed by Spanish magazine Plástica as “one of the most important happenings in Latin American music [and] in general for Mexican music,” the third annual All My Friends Music Festival is extending a hand across the border to include bands from sister city San Diego all the way to Brooklyn.

“This year AMF proudly becomes a festival accessible to the community,” says coordinator Marty Preciado.

“We become an all-ages show and will invite bands from the United States, in this manner serving the rich cultural and musical exchange lived throughout the US-Mexico border.”

The lineup, released yesterday, features over 35 prominent and underground indie acts on 4 stages in an all-day showcase of transborder amity that will no doubt serve as a blueprint for many a festival in years to come.

“We are sure this event will have a positive effect in our beloved Tijuana,” says AMF’s general director, Argenis Garcia.


Highlights from the North include Brooklyn’s whimsical, one-man Latin electro-folk innovator, Helado Negro:



Los Angeles occult drone-folk artist Chelsea Wolfe:



Long Beach Touch and Go psychedelics Crystal Antlers:



San Diego sunny day treats Tropical Popsicle:



And SD via El Centro/Mexicali noise-prone fronteracore post punks Batwings:



Mexicali no wave dance punks Maniqui Lazer will be out representing Baja’s capital:


Along with the ambient desert soundscapes of Vampire Slayer aka Valentin Torres of Maniqui Lazer and experimental/dance/punk/electronic label Indiangold Records:



Recently reunited post rock outfit Ambiente will be flying the Tijuana banner:



Along with, among others, TJ/Chula Vista hardcore crusties Bumbklaatt:


TJ/Vegas doom-folk troubadour Late Nite Howl:



Electro-folk ruidoson ambassadors Los Macuanos and Maria y Jose:




Powerviolence outfit Calafia Puta:


And moody darkwave duo Dancing Strangers (members of The Electric Healing Sound and Shantelle):

Last year’s location - the tack-fabulous Millionaire’s Mansion in the hills over-looking downtown - will be hard to beat, but the historic Casa de la Cultura looks to be a promising alternative.

One of Tijuana’s oldest buildings, Casa de la Cultura is a former World War II espionage center that now serves as an art school capable of accommodating the expected 2,500-3,000 attendees of All My Friends Music Festival 2012.

With presale tickets (first 200 purchased online) at 100 pesos and the rest at 150 (that’s roughly $8 and $12 USD, respectively), you’ve got no excuse not to head south, rock out, and party alongside all your friends.
