To paraphrase el jefe Phife Dawg, whether you're "brown, yellow, Puerto Rican and Haitian" (and also a bunch of other people from all diasporas back to the Cro-Mags, we don't discrimihate), you need to go to this party. Peace / love around the world forever. The Chicanas among us expect to rep (and wreck) fully this Latin 'splosion tonight at Santo's Playhouse in beeeyootiful downtown New York, as a hot sidebar jump to the Latin Alternative Music Conference. DJs include Toy Selectah (pictured above), from Monterrey, MX's dope hip-hop crew Control Machete, possibly dropping some cumbia? Maybe not. Also Stereotyp from Vienna doing dub time and LA-via-Monterrey turntable bruiser Mexican Dubwiser. Go celebrate the fact that Luis Miguel and Aracely Arambula are expecting again! Oh don't front you know you read ¡Hola! So it's supposed to be super packed but show up, maybe you can pretend to be part of the house band and carry in a bongo like Marc Antony in El Cantate.
