Langerado Festival in South Florida (Sunrise, to be exact) from March 9-11 kicks off the indie festival season with a diverse, largely-American lineup (as you can see) that’s not only in a great location, but has something for everyone.  Jam, alt-rock, new-jazz, experimental, post-rock, and DJs along with several other genres of performers make up a solid group that is easily worth the trip.  We’ll bring some in-depth coverage from the festival, but for now, here’s an in-depth preview:
