I just received notice from Clemencia Zapata, drummer/percussionist/vocals for Los Pinkys (and other groups), that the Austin based Conjunto Los Pinkys will be performing during the SXSW Music Festival. According to the SXSW website, the date is to TBA- see http://schedule.sxsw.com/2013/events/event_MS22417 – but Zapata states it is March 15th at the White Horse.
If conjunto music lovers have not yet had a chance to catch one of their shows that features Austin music veterans Isidro Samilpa and Chencho Flores, fans have missed two musicians from Austin that have been performing since the 1950’s and know their music.
