Tormenta Tropical has been going strong for nearly three years now, during which time a lot of amazing DJs and artists have come through graced its stage. Nevertheless, it's safe to say that the October edition of the party will be the biggest Tormenta Tropical yet.
EL GUINCHO (Young Turks, Barcelona)
...DISCO SHAWN (Bersa Discos, San Francisco)
ORO11 (Bersa Discos, Los Angeles)
For the first time ever, we're offered presale tickets for the party. The first 50 people to purchase them can get in for just $10, which is an absolute steal for this event. Act fast, because the price will go up!
Headlining the party is Barcelona's El Guincho, who just released 'Pop Negro,' his second album of tropically minded pop gems. El Guincho has come through San Francisco before, he's never played at a straight-up dance party like Tormenta Tropical or in a venue as intimate as the Elbo Room.
As usual, Bersa Discos founders and Tormenta Tropical residents Disco Shawn and Oro11 will be spinning an assortment of cumbia, dancehall, reggaeton, tribal guarachero, moombahton, and other tropical sounds. Tormenta Tropical is always an en fuego dance party, but this month's installment is not one to be missed.
NOTE: Unfortunately, El Hijo de la Cumbia was unable to get his visa on time and had to cancel his trip to the U.S. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to get him back out here soon.
