After Pachanga Fest this weekend, be sure and stay on the east side as the Latino music community here in Austin have worked to put together some fantastic after shows. One of a few after shows will take place not far from Fiesta Gardens on East 6th at Hotel Vegas and Volstead Lounge. Fans of Latin Alternative and Latin-inspired electronica will want to bring your Pachanga wristbands with you to keep the pachanga going both tonight and tomorrow night.
Tonight both Hotel Vegas and Volsted will pop off Pachanga estyle. The stage inside Hotel Vegas will give fans another more intimate live experience with Pachanga Fest openers Este Vato (Austin) and an advance look at Bang Data (Oakland, CA) before their performance at the fest on Saturday. DJ Manny and DJ Orión (Peligrosa) will also spin together on the Hotel Vegas stage. The Volstead stage will feature DJ Dus (Peligrosa, Master Blaster Sound System) and “Screwmbia” purveyors, Royal Highness.
On Saturday night Volstead will be the spot as Guadalajara-based cumbiatrónica duo Los Master Plus will bring their norteño-insired swag to the turntables with a special DJ set. The duo (El Comanche and Larry Mon) also have some of the best mustaches in the business, so get at look at them up close at Volstead. Also tomorrow night DJ Orión will team up with Houston’s DJ Gracie Chavez of Bombón.
Hotel Vegas and Volstead Lounge are located at 1500 E. 6th Street. Doors open at 10 p.m. 21+ are welcome. Admission is FREE with Pachanga Fest wristbands or $5 at the door without. Visit the official Facebook event page here.
