Peligrosa posterFriday, Apr. 17, marks the third Friday of the month and that means it is time for Austin-based Latin DJ collective Peligrosa to take over Empire Control Room & Garage. Austin’s longest running Latin dance party will welcome special guest Miami-based DJ and producer Happy Colors to Friday’s event as it will serve as the release of his single “Que Buena Es La Rumba,” out soon on Discos Peligrosa.

Peligrosa crew members who will be in the house Friday include Orion, Pagame, King Louie, Manolo Black, Sonora, DJ Manny, El Dusty and Chorizo Funk. Peligrosa photographer Quito will be taking photos.
