LOS VICIOS DE PAPÁ + CHEMA SKANDAL + BUMBAC JOE
Saturday, October 7, 2017
8 pm - 1 am

LOS VICIOS DE PAPÁ
www.losviciosdepapa.bandcamp.com
www.facebook.com/LVDPSoundSystem/

Los Vicios de Papá is a high energy Latin ska fusion band with socially conscious lyrics stemming from our struggling and undocumented youth experience. Our sound started with a passion for ska/reggae and has evolved into an 8 piece band that arranges Cumbia, Dancehall, Huapachon, Hip Hop, Reggae and Ska creating an intoxicating mix that ignites fans into a dance-frenzy.

LVDP was born out of a crumbling public education system and failing immigration policy in Chicago's Back of the Yards neighborhood. We are a response to these systemic and unjust inequities; we create an upbeat way out.

Closing Night! with Dos Cantos:  Anti-Beat Orquesta
Saturday, October 14th, 2017
8 pm - 1 am

Dos Santos: Anti-Beat Orquesta is a Chicago-based band that rocks the sounds of popular Latin dance genres with psychedelic flare, from Colombian Cumbia to Afro-Caribbean Salsa. Anchored by reverb-slathered guitars, Hammond organ, and syncopated percussion, their gritty and grassroots approach captures the “golden age” of streamlined ensembles of the 1970s and 80s that shook sweatbox dance floors with fierce energy all over Latin America.
