Tonight is the night Austin-based Latin DJ collective Peligrosa takes over the Empire Control Room & Garage patio. While that alone is news worthy to Latin electronic music fans and EDM peeps, tonight the party is getting “turnt up” Houston style with Bombón. This party is a long overdue and doors are opening an hour earlier if that tells you anything.
At first look, Bombón appears to be the doppelgänger to Peligrosa. The tropical dance party purveyors are composed of DJs Gracie Chavez, Navó, OG Bobby Trill and Panchitron. They too have their monthly Latin tropical throw down in Houston at Fox Hollow, much like Peligrosa at Empire. They have garnered their own online buzz since their inception with more focus on remixing H-Town classics, of course. Be ready to enjoy screwmbia, moombahton and more.
Special guest percussionist Chappy Luna of Los Skarnales and The Suffers fame will be joining Bombón tonight. La Comadre Mel will be in the house. ‘Quito will take your picture.
Empire Control Room & Garage is located at 606 E. 7th Street. Event will take place on the patio. Doors open at 9 p.m. 21+ welcome. $5 cover. Visit the Facebook event page here.
