Austin Vida is proud to bring the Latin dance party to the UT campus area once again as we present the third installment of our new Barrio Bash series on Saturday, April 27, at Spider House Ballroom. Our goal is to bring together the best and most diverse Latin Alternative bands on one stage while also showcasing some of our favorite DJs. Barrios Bash Vol. III will be no different as we have another incredible lineup for you to enjoy all night.
Our featured Ballroom Stage headliner on Saturday is Cilantro Boombox. Austin’s answer to Los Amigos Invisibles, Cilantro Boombox formed when producer/bassist Felix Pacheco and Joe Willard of saxophonist Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears fame came together in 2010. Their unique brand of Afro-Latin fusion or “bilingual funk” incorporates elements of hip hop, salsa, electronica and reggae.
Austin-based Latin fusion bands Los Bandidos Cosmicos and Este Vato round out the list of performers on the Ballroom Stage. Peligrosa member DJ Chorizo Funk and percussionist Rudy Rexx will be on the Chapel Stage outside the Ballroom from 8-10 p.m. The duo will be performing their Clásico set, their last performance until June.
Spider House Ballroom is located at 2906 Fruth Street. Doors open at 8 p.m. All ages are welcome. $7 cover for 21+. $10 for minors. Show your student I.D. at the door for reduced cover. Free parking. RSVP on Facebook here for your chance to win tickets to this year’s Pachanga Latino Music Fest.
