With a name like Mucho Party, it can either be all hype or it can be a mucho-party throwdown. Lucky for this crew, they're the latter and have been going six years strong in the game in San Diego, with its sister party up north in downtown L.A.'s La Cita.
While most music promoters can only promise a live show, Mucho Party goes the extra step to make sure party-goers experience the Mucho Party with a sweet DJ. They're also proud to have booked some of the most talented up-and-coming artists working in the Latin-alternative music scene in our city, including Carla Morrison, Vanessa Zamora, Astro, Fesway and Nina Dioz -- and in the most intimate of venues. Live Latin-alternative music and a dance party all in one place is unheard of in San Diego.
"Mucho has singled out artists who have gone on to be nominated for Latin Grammys and showcased them here before they were even on the public's radar," Mucho Party's Luis Dante said.
On Friday, Mucho Party celebrates its six-year anniversary at the Til-Two Club, featuring the best in '80s and '90s Latin-alternative music from DJ STJP (aka, DJ Saint JP), with local DJ selector Luis Torres. With Mucho Party signature foresight, they're giving DJ STJP from Las Vegas his second booking, because, as Dante puts it, "His first one was with Girl Is Tough, and he was a riot among the Mucho Party people." The night will also feature a live tribute to the influential Argentinean band, Soda Stereo and a hosted bar from 9-10 p.m, courtesy of Sapporo.
