Memorial Day weekend gets a proper kickoff Latino estyle this Friday at East Austin hotspot, Hotel Vegas. If the lineup in the poster to the left looks familiar, you’re not experiencing deja vu. Two of Austin’s favorites in our local Latin Alternative scene, El Tule and DJ Orión, take over the venue for a party they have branded “La Revancha.”
DJ Orión is the leader and founding member of popular Austin-based Latin DJ collective Peligrosa. A jack of all trades, Orión Garcia seems to do it all. He holds down a Saturday residency at The Volstead, handles all things business for Peligrosa and even provides visuals for live music events and parties that aren’t his. Best of all, he throws down the best of electro-cumbia, dembow, moombahton, hip-hop, salsa and more.
Latin fusion band EL Tule is a staple in the Latin music community in Austin. Their lyrics are about history, art and culture often focus on legends and tales of the mystical. Their music blends elements of salsa, merengue, cumbia and reggae set to Spanish lyrics. El Tule are currently performing in support of their latest release, Volumen III.
Hotel Vegas is located at 1500 E. 6th Street. Doors open at 9 p.m. Music at 10 p.m. 21+ welcome. $7 cover. Visit the Facebook event page here.
