The night’s line-up includes [We Are The Grand](http://schedule.sxsw.com/2013/events/event_MS21122). WATG holds strong to a very contemporary style of fast-paced indie rock with skilled execution. From catchy guitar riffs to English-sung lyrics, this rock quartet takes inspiration from their North American neighbors and flips it right-side up. Returning for another successful year here at the festival is folk-rock collective **Caravana**. Caravana is a highly respected group of all-star Chilean artists. There’s Fernando Milagros on guitar, Felicia Morales on cello + vocals, Pedro Piedra on bass and the internationally renown Gepe on drums. In addition to the one set, [Gepe](http://schedule.sxsw.com/2013/events/event_MS22026) will also perform as a solo artist. Under his own moniker, he grooves listeners with his latin rhythms and energetic performances. Come see these great musicians along with soft synthpop artist [Fakuta](http://schedule.sxsw.com/2013/events/event_MS21123), producer-artist [Diego Peralta](http://schedule.sxsw.com/2013/events/event_MS22823), and the down-to-earth rockers [Protistas](http://schedule.sxsw.com/2013/events/event_MS22025) on Tuesday, March 12 starting at 8:00pm.
