The official and unofficial pre-parties for this weekend’s big Pachanga Latino Music Festival are in full effect Friday, May 9. While the official pre-paty happens at Empire Control Rook & Garage downtown, the unofficial pre-pachanga events take place east of the highway. They are worth a look for Latin Alternative fans, specifically the Los Master Plus and King Louie event at Volstead Lounge.
Guadalajara-based electronica duo Los Master Plus are composed of El Comanche and Larry Mon. The two gained popularity online after remaking American pop faves into unique electro-norteña hits and for their amazing handlebar mustaches. The Pachanga alumni are sure to keep the dance vibe of the East 6th hotspot “turnt up.”
Volstead Lounge is located at 1500 E. 6th next to Hotel Vegas. Doors open at 9 p.m. 21+ welcome. $7 cover. Visit the Facebook event page here.
