Yep, there’s another Moombahton Massive party at U Street Music Hall tonight—-the third, but it’s a little different from the first two. First, Dave Nada—-the inventor of the microgenre—-won’t be headlining under his own name, but as part of his duo Nadastrom. Second, Munchi, the Dutch wunderkind who made his name via Moombahton and has helped elevate it, won’t be DJing at all this time. The event is a benefit to help pay for his medical bills: Earlier this year, he suffered an intracerebral hemorrhage while in the states, briefly fell into a coma, and racked up some hefty hospital bills before returning to the Netherlands.
One goodie before you go: On his blog, U Street Music Hall co-owner Jesse Tittsworth has a download of Nadastrom’s Moombahton edit of “You’ve Got the Love” by Florence and the Machine. One goodie for when you’re there: Nada’s mom will be selling homemade empanadas.
Last bit of Moombahton news: Here’s a bit of a visual teaser for the upcoming Moombahton comp on the Mad Decent label.
Moombahton Massive Tres takes place tonight at 9 p.m. at U Street Music Hall, 115 U St. NW. $5.
