On Saturday, March 10, Austin Vida returns to Jovita’s for our monthly residency with two incredible bands to kick off the biggest week of the year in Austin. The iconic South Austin venue has been home to many great Latin music showcases throughout the years. Help us continue that tradition as we bring you two of our favorite party starters, Master Blaster Sound System and Manazas Malas.
Master Blaster Sound System is a Latin fusion band that specializes in what they refer to as “cumbia crunk.” The band incorporates electronic toys, live beats and a full band push the live show envelope and serve as a bridge between DJ culture, live music performances and the cumbia underground. Master Blaster Sound System perform at 9:30pm.
Headlining the night’s showcase are the new look Manzanas Malas. A perfect compliment to Master Blaster Sound System, their style of Latin fusion combines elements of cumbia, salsa, pop, hip hop and other traditional Latin rhythms. After helping us bring the party during Free Week in January, we’re happy to have them perform for us again. The band will be performing some of their fan favorites along with some new tracks from their upcoming album due out this year. Manzanas Malas perform at 11:15pm.
Finally, those in attendance who pay cover will receive a raffle ticket for our Pachanga Latino Music Festival ticket giveaway. We will be raffling off two Saturday V.I.P. tickets to this year’s fest in-between sets on Saturday night. All ages are eligible to win. The winner must be present in order to claim their prize.
