Support One of My Favorite Local Bands

Alegria rampante el Independiente 3

At  the third Independiente my friends from Puerto Rico Indie and Frecuencias Alternas produced, I was able to listen to Eduardo Alegria of  Alegria Rampante, live for the first time. As every other Independiente event, I quickly understood why Alegria Rampante had been chosen to play on a night where Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer took the stage.

The coolest part of going to the Independiente was that I got to know and become a fan to artists like my other favorite local bands Macha Colón and Los Okapi and Los Niños Estelares.  The Independiente also made me add these bands such as Las Acevedo, Juan Cirerol, and Alex Anwandter to Spotify and Bandcamp.

Why Support Alegria Rampante?

For those that live on an Island with so many hurdles for creatives and small business owners, I want to be able to support those who take a leap and do their best in creating and putting their best work out for others to enjoy.

Listening to Alegria Rampante’s music,  I clearly see a team of people doing what much more should do. Alegria Rampante is creating a better future for themselves and for the communities around them by CREATING.

As I look forward to Alegria’s new work, I invite you to support Eduardo and his team by skipping a coffee , a round of golf, or a full weekend of partying in some fancy night clubs.

    I’m always glad to learn about people discovering independent artists through our blog and events –but it’s amazing when they end up writing about these artists, supporting them, and sharing their music with others. Our artists need more fans like you, Raúl.
