Backs to the stage, shirts drenched and spattered with blue paint, La Vida Boheme opened NPR Music's SXSW day party in kinetically jumpy style Thursday, setting the tone for an afternoon of genre-jumping surprises. By the time the Venezuelan dance-rock band hit the "gabba gabba hey" bit in the chorus of the set-opening "Radio Capital," it was clear that nuance would curl up and take a backseat to chant-along charm and stage-shaking energy.

A boundlessly gleeful young band, La Vida Boheme invigorates Latin rock with the grit and viscera of punk and the churning drive of dance music. The result synthesizes entire cultures and genres to form a hard-driving, paint-splattered party. What could be better?

  • "Radio Capital"
  • "El Sentimento ha muerto"
  • "Huxley"
