Diego Garcia / DJ Carbo
June 19, 2013
Established in Boston in 2004, the Fenway Recordings Sessions is a regular concert series featuring a mix of established acts and the best new and developing indie artists playing the city's clubs along with occasional special guest DJs.
Born in Detroit to Argentine parents, Diego Garcia traces his diverse roots on his debut solo album, Laura. Garcia was inspired by the loss of love and the classic troubadour movement. Billboard magazine praised Garcia for his "melodic pop sensibility" and "stellar solo debut." The new album quickly shot up the charts, breaking into the iTunes Alternative Top 15 albums. With lush string arrangements, delicate Spanish guitars, and distinctly Latin flavor, the new album is worlds apart from Garcia's former band Elefant, a post-punk rock band that entered the music scene alongside The Strokes and Interpol.
DJ Carbo a.k.a. Mark Kates was a resident at one of L.A's. electronica clubs, Atmosphere at The Viper Room, as well as on the legendary pirate station KBLT. He now hosts the Fenway Recordings Sessions in Boston.
