This weekend marks the unofficial beginning of summer. If you’re in New York, turn up the heat with three-days of nonstop music. Tonight, salsa futurists Zemog El Gallo Bueno fuse bomba and plena with Van Halen and Sun Ra for an old-school meets new-school musical hodgepodge at Joe’s Pub.
Tomorrow, our favorite Venezuelan space cowboys, Los Amigos Invisibles, will give the chicos of Nacotheque a preview of their latest album, Comercial. Expect to move your “cuchi cuchi” to their groovy beats at Fontana’s.
On Sunday, New York–based bachateros Xtreme wind things down with a taste of the Dominican Republic (via the Bronx) at SOB’s. Bring your sweetie and ask the boys to sing “Shorty, Shorty.” And remember to take it slow—the season is just getting started!
