This Wednesday Guillermo, Lady Z & Professor Brian Oblivion bring SUPERBACANA! to Pop’s Bar! It’s a function that will celebrate classic and rare Brazilian music on wax all night long! Bossa, samba soul, tropicalia, soul, funk, boogie, psych, jazz and more all from Brazilian artists with that distinct Brazilian swing.

Back in the day there was a party called Gostosa that Guillermo and Allen Thayer (Wax Poetics) used to throw at Casanova once a month. They had Greg Caz of Brazilian Beat Brooklyn come through to play a killer set of funky Brazilian records. Joel Stones of Tropicalia In Furs dropped a set of face melting Brazilian psych records. Kon and Amir heard it was happening while they were in town and came down just to kick it. Plus loads of local Brazilian music collectors and DJs such as Elan, Ivan, Jonny Blunck and Cameron. It was a paradise dedicated to older Brazilian music, both rare and classic, aimed straight for the dance floor. SUPERBACANA! is the next evolution of that party!

Come through and bring your dancing shoes!
