WHAT: Big Bang Saturday
WHEN: Sat April 28
WHERE: Digress Restaurant & Lounge
Newly opened Digress Restaurant & Lounge is holding its first major live music event: Big Bang Saturday. Presented in conjunction with ANU’s Centre for Latin American Studies and Latin America Students Association, the night features the carnival sounds of Los Chavos, an eight-piece collective playing reggae, Latin ska, cumbia and samba. Los Chavos have played in and around Canberra since 2006. Made up of talented jazz musicians and headed by Andy Jauregui, a former Latin rock singer from Cochabamba, the bands punchy horns and street rhythms are irresistible. They are supported by local DJs Alex Carder and Rafa Chango spinning urban Latino sounds. 8.30pm, $10/$5 LASA members, free before 9pm.
