tambuca @ bar lurcat
friday april 11

after receiving reports of conga lines from hell as well as what would be considered extremely inappropriate ass-shaking on this side of the equator, i began an undercover investigation of the dj / percussion tag team known as tambuca. while attending two evenings (first at fhima's, followed by the funk for food benefit at the cabooze) in stealth mode, i discovered that some of minneapolis' most celebrated djs (jezus juice, of netradio.com and system 33 fame; former rogue resident dean vaccaro, last seen sporting a fez, dropping exotica beats at club velvet events) as well as musicians (internationally renowned percussionist and soutien-georges cabaret member joseph pettini; multi-instrumentalist, hanover fist alumnus and celebrity records recording artist chuck love *plus* the ever enigmatic al 'slowride' davis- otherwise known as the "cruise director") have been operating under the alias in order to avoid being hauled off by the 5-oh! for aiding and abetting unlawful groove. house meets latin influence and 58 other exciting flavors in this unique vinyl vs. live musiccombo. venga, boys and girls: go, go, go to this show!
