DJ Afro of Los Amigos Invisibles

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

Tonight's show features a guest DJ set from Jose Luis Pardo a/k/a DJ Afro (pictured above) of the uproarious yet cerebral Venezuelan party band Los Amigos Invisibles. Jose, who often DJs after-shows following Amigos gigs, spins Venezuelan and other Hispanophone gems from his enormous collection.

DJ Afro has a new cd out (Free) and so do Los Amigos (Not So Commercial - sort of a companion to their Latin Grammy winning 2009 release Commercial) - both on Nacional Records.

Oy, taxes! Yes, I just did mine... you know you have until the 18th this year because of the Emancipation Day holiday in Washington DC... not to encourage you to put it off or anything...
  Sat. 4/9/11 8:30pm mike east:

Oh man...I've been putting it off long enough as is...I started about a month ago, got frustrated and now I'm back at it. The key, I have found, is to have plenty of beer in the fridge to take the edge off. Tonights choice is Hoegarten.
