Miami Dance Party Legends Fire Up Crowbar Oct. 10
(TAMPA) – The Tampa Bay live-music disciples known as THX MGMT continue to provide their hometown with eclectic, entertaining nightlife of the highest order. This time around, they’re bringing in South Florida groove juggernauts Spam Allstars for a one-night stand at Ybor City’s celebrated Crowbar.
For more than a decade, DJ Le Spam and his cast of various collaborators have defined the perfect balance of booty-moving DJ set and exciting live-band performance. The group incorporates elements of everything from house and trance to hip-hop, Afro-Cuban, dub and other disparate styles into its own infectious, energetic sound. Their constant redefinition of a genre-obliterating, dance floor-filling in-concert experience has led them to residencies in clubs from New Orleans to New York, as well as four critically lauded albums, one of which, 2002’s Fuacata Live!, was nominated for a Latin Grammy. The group’s newest effort, Introducing Spam Allstars, culls tracks from all of its previous releases, but the best way to be well and truly introduced to Spam Allstars’ bumping, bilingual party sound is in concert.
For this very special evening of music that brings together influences from around the world, Spam Allstars will be joined by a pair of similarly globally minded artists from right here in the Tampa Bay area – the upbeat, horn-inflected Hip Abduction and rhythmic, liquid Acho Brother.
Spam Allstars, The Hip Abduction and Acho Brother appear at Crowbar on Friday, October 10. Crowbar is located at 1812 N. 17th St. in Ybor City Doors are at 9 p.m. Tickets are $12; all ages are welcome.
