IMG_0171One of the truly wonderful things about the city of Guadalajara, Mexico, is the number of performances free to the public that take place in various parts of the city. Just wrapping up is the Epicentro, Festival de Inovación, a several-day festival dedicated to espousing the benefits of social and technological innovation. Along with conferences, there are free performances throughout the city during the festival, including live music smack in Avenida Chapultepec from bands like Technicolor Fabrics. Today is the last day of that festival, but hot on its heels is the 212 RMX music festival that is put on by every year. For much of the day and night tomorrow, Saturday, November 22nd, bands will be strumming their stuff on five different stages. On tap are Nortec Collective, Telefunka, Torreblanca, Salón Acapulco, and Elis Paprika and the Black Pilgrims, among many others (there are 38 acts planned in total).
