  1. La gusana ciega estuvo el año pasado (o en el 2006…) y estuvo bueno. Fobia y Jumbo por supuesto. De los colombianos, no sabia nada de ninguno, pero en la pagina de gatoblanco en myspace hay canciones interesantes. Definitivamente hay que ir a varios de los conciertos.

  2. Lo mejor de todo eso es el ZIZEK COLLECTIVE….los vi en Buenos Aires a varios de ellos y son increibles……..en especial King Coya & el trip selector y Axel K Sound system. El remolon es muy bueno tambien.
    Son EN NUEVO SONIDO DE BUNOS AIRES!!!
