Cilantro Boombox stopped by Studio 1A tp perform a few songs before their performance this Sunday at the 41st Annual Spring Pecan Street Festival. The president of Pecan Street Festival, Lynn Raridon, also joined us in the studio to tell us a little bit about the festival. The Pecan Street Association is a nonprofit organization, and the festival is also a nonprofit festival, which is why is always has been and always will be free to attend. The goal of both the organization and festival is to promote the cultural heritage of Austin, and any proceeds are donated to causes that benefits children and the arts. Cilantro Boombox will be playing at 5:20pm on Sunday at the Neches Street Stage. The local seven piece plays music with elements of Latin, brass band, and electronic- and is guaranteed to make you dance. Check out their full studio session and interview below.
