The super-homie Dave Nada and I are proud to present the first ever MEGATON at SXSW! The moombahton innovator (creator / genius / rockstar / he of hair only comparable to my own) and I have been plotting this for months. And honestly, we couldn’t be more excited for this all-friends get-down of our favorite Latin-influenced dance producers and DJs to close out what’s bound to be an amazing SXSW. While Nadastrom will certainly be holding down the moombahtons, we’re so happy to have a carefully curated range of other dancey delights as well. There will be cumbia, reggae, dancehall, Latin house and tropical vibes from the gods DJ Sabo, Toy Selectah, and Dre Skull. Club annihilators Starks & Nacey and Brenmar hold down the more bass-heavy beats. And did we mention the live drummer and the hypest MC around courtesy of DC’s Sol Power All-Stars and the babest, Zuzuka Poderosa?
We’re expecting this to get bonkers and sweaty (and honestly, probably a little out of control with this cast of characters) - so we’ll recommend that you show up early. SXSW badges and regular party folk are welcome!
Full lineup and RSVP below!
I’m so very proud to present another addition of A Baltimore Love Thing on Thursday, March 17th at Malaia for this year’s SXSW! This official SXSW showcase focuses some of the best dance-makers and producers from DC to NY, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have a lineup of some of my favorite DJs and friends get together for this. The show will host everyone from M.I.A. producer and Baltimore club hero Blaqstarr, Brick Bandit’s all-stars Tamiel & Tim Dolla, to my party resident Cousin Cole, and so many more. If tonight is anything like events past, be prepared for an epic dance party with a mix of hip hop, the grittier side of house, a heavy hand of club music, a mosh-pit of friends, stage-mobbing, and a couple of maniacs behind the turntables. SXSW badges and non-badge holders are welcome all night, though we do recommend that you RSVP for entry as this party does will up quite fast. Full lineup and RSVP info below!
