Sandra A. Treviño began her career on the business side of music as the band manager for local rock band [.DESCARGA.].  The underground concerts she attended inspired her to begin writing and reporting on new music releases and interviewing local bands, her coverage eventually included the movement of Latin Alternative music across the US, as well as dishing out the glam and not-so-glamorous side of music and entertainment. She is the co-founder of Enchufate.com, Chicago’s first Latin Alternative media and entertainment portal. A site that began as a follow-up to E>N>E (Errores No Eliminados), a television program that focused on Chicago’s independent music movement, specifically rock en español–via interviews, reviews and event promotions, Enchufate reported on local bands as well as international acts including Cafe Tacuba, Aterciopelados, and Calle 13.

Sandra’s repertoire also includes concert organizing, spinning as DJ Angelfuk and she hosts the radio segment, “Sandra’s Seven in Seven” on Vocalo.org’s radio stream on 89.5FM.  She is currently working on her first book, Music & More, in collaboration with the upcoming documentary, REC: Rock En Español.  Sandra has contributed to the Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Tribune, Illinois Entertainer, Extra Newspaper, Red Eye, Metromix, LATV, Contratiempo, Cafe & Mas Magazine and most of Chicago’s independent radio programs. She is the Midwest representative for Nacional Records, the country’s first Latin Alternative boutique music label.

Presently, Sandra uses television and radio journalism to spotlight the amazing world of Latin Alternative music and especially of Latinas working in the scene.  Her focus continues to be music production and the growth of women in music through Enchufate, writing and social networking.

In her spare time Sandra pretends to sleep.
