Cross-Cultural Dance Night
Escape relentless Top 40 hits at DISCOSTAN, a monthly dance party dedicated to Turkish funk, Senegalese mbalax, Algerian raï, and more. Every second Wednesday a revolving troupe of DJs steps behind the decks at Footsie’s in Cypress Park; expect high-energy tunes that boldly traverse time periods (think prerevolutionary Persian pop or synthy 1980s Indian disco) and inspire you to get your groove on. Gyrating not your thing? Listen to the Discostan radio show online, which broadcasts from Boyle Heights’ Espacio 1839.
