Rumba Psicodelica! returns monday nite...
text and poster: Pablo Yglesias

HEYA kitties & cats out there in La La Land. We had so much FUN last month at The Elevens in Northampton we decided to keep this thing going!! Thanks to DJ George William Myers aka "Snack Attack" the flame still burns bright. Check it out in the flier below and please feel free to drag it to your desktop and email it to friends. I know it's late for some of you (heh-heh), but you can drop by towards the beginning. To all you dancers, vatos locos and go-go gals we saw last time, thank you, and please come with more friends this time. It's going to be wild - light show courtesy of Bell & Howl, WMUA's own DJ Andujar, plus me, Bongohead from Latin Night, and some random live percussion. We will be slinging rare vinyl from around the world, with an emphasis on funky and psychedelic Latin and African music of the 60s & 70s, the odd vintage salsa, cumbia, and merengue, plus great contemporary acts out right now that have a sound that fits in with our aesthetic of real music for real people: acts like Quantic, Antibalas, Kokolo, Up, Bustle & Out, Los Chapillacs, Brownout, Grupo Fantasma, Nomo, Spam Allstars, Kaleta, Bio Ritmo, all artists that issue vinyl today; plus various dope reissues of old school cuts from Vampisoul, Soundway, Stones Throw, etc. Hey, record labels, send us your vinyl! If you like the WMUA program Clandestino or were a fan of my Feel Flows radio show when it aired a few years ago, you will surely DIG RUMBA PSYCODELICA!

Check it out this coming Monday 930-til 1am, at the Elevens, Pleasant St in Northampton. The suggested donation is $2 (but no one will be turned away). DJs Andujar, Bongohead, Snack Attack (maybe surprise guests too!?!). Visuals by Bell & Howl. Live percussion. Join us!!!
