Aug 16: CumbiaSazo! Rooftop Party & Fundraiser


It’s come that time for our lil CumbiaSazo crew to leave the nest and see what’s out there. Starting Auguest 28, DJ Itzi, VDJ caliXta, Tifflove, Pura & in select cities El Timbales, Puerto Pitzotl & Logan Lu are traveling to 14 cities in 24 days for our first ever US mini-tour!

Sandwiched between 2 of our regular monthly parties in the Chi, we’ll be getting in the van, with our music, with our decor, with our stories, and connecting with sister crews, DJs, bands, & DIY artisans throughout the midwest, southwest, west coast & possibly a little Mexico. We’ll be performing at various parties/shows and even doing a few official CumbiaSazos- who’d a thunk??

We plan to keep the tour DIY & low-budge, but it’s gonna take a massive fundraising effort to get us around and keep us taken care of. We’ve launched an Indiegogo page where friends can donate, so please please do if ya can in the next 2 weeks, but first things first we’re throwing a rooftop party & fundraiser!

Please join us this Sunday on the brand new roofdeck of Taxim Restaurant in Wicker Park for an intimate gathering & daytime dance party.

Featuring sets by:

$4 Tecates & shots will be available along with other well-drinks, wines & non-alcoholic stuff. Taxim’s super delish $4-6 small food plates will be available after 4pm, so don’t miss that.

In gratitude,
– Itzi, caliXta, Tifflove & Pura
