La Placida del Mercado

We're going to be launching our first party in Shelburne Falls this Saturday night. The citizens at McCusker's Market, part of the Franklin Community Co-op, have asked me to collaberate on a dance party at their spot on the Buckland side of the river. Patti and Ingrid were kind enough to help put together what they are calling "la Placita del Mercado", a dance night at the market inspired by their recent trip to Puerto Rico. I drafted DJs 12XU and B-COMING to join me in dropping some funk damage in the sticks. There will be a heavy amount of african, funk, latin, reggae and other Carribean soul grooves, along with some Brazilian, cumbia, bugalĂș and soul. We're bringing only vinyl and will be going from 730 til about midnight.
McCuskers has a nice room with a huge fishtank, a keg of beer and some wine, along with a seriously nice outdoor patio (with tents-in case of rain) that will double as a dancefloor. The donation (suggested: $5 for the DJs) includes two drinks and all night love. Beer and wine is kindly provided by the Wine Merchant.
We hope to see you there!
This Saturday is September 5th, and the party begins at 730. McCuskers is located at 3 State St in Shelburne Falls, MA. It is about 15 minutes from Greenfield and 35 minutes from Northampton.
