Thursday, Sept. 11, Cedar Street Courtyard is introducing “Salsa Night” with Austin-based salsa fusion band La Vida Buena. Known mostly for popular cover bands and singer-songwriter events, outside of big South By Southwest parties of course, the popular Warehouse District venue is finally adding some sabor. Think of it as a pre-celebration for Mexican Independence Day.
La Vida Buena is lead by member Louie “Luison” Alarcon. The La Vida group performs original tracks from their debut EP ¡Checkpoint Alpha! as well as salsa-fied covers of popular hip-hop and R&B tracks. You read that right. Be ready for “Gin & Juice” like you’ve never heard before.
Cedar Street is located at 208 W 4th St. Doors will open at 5 p.m. and the band will begin playing at 9:30 p.m. Cover is $8. 21+ are welcome. Cedar Street will be serving Latin-inspired cocktails such as Mojitos, Pisco Sours, and Cuba Libres to commemorate the occasion. Visit the Facebook event page here.
