After a Jan. 12 concert at a packed Coliseo Roberto Clemente in its native Puerto Rico, rock band La Secta traveled to Miami to mix the audio for a TV special based on the show. The 7,000 tickets available for the concert sold out four days in advance -- quite an achievement for an indie rock band. La Secta was signed to Fonovisa, but last year it released an eponymous album on its own No Little Fish Music. In Puerto Rico alone, the disc has sold close to 100,000 copies.

"In Puerto Rico, when people say `un pescadito' (a little fish), it refers to someone trying to trick you," bass player Mark Kilpatrick explains. "So when we decided on No Little Fish, we meant no tricks -- either to us or from us to anyone."

La Secta is preparing to begin promotion in Mexico, Venezuela, and the U.S., where the group is distributed by Delanuca Records.
