Re/Route Productions specializes in bringing performers from around the world to perform in Washington, DC. Tomorrow, they are presenting Brazil’s DJ Tudo at LIV Nightclub. Plus, dear readers, We Love DC has two pairs of tickets to give away!
This is the first-ever tour of North America for DJ Tudo (real name: Alfredo Bello) and his stop in DC is one of only three cities he will be visiting. That said, he is hardly an underground artist on his home continent – his performance in New York is at Lincoln Center, after all, and his recent record, Nos quintais do Mundo (“In the Backyards of the World”), features collaborations with well-known artists like Mad Professor – so this is a opportunity to catch him on the ascent to international superstar dj status.
Unlike your Tiëstos and Oakenfolds, however, Bello is also an enthomusicologist, and brings a tremendous appreciation for indigenous genres and styles to his performance. Unfamiliar with the local musical genres of Brazil’s Maracatu or Sergipe? This is your chance to hear these traditional styles mixed with dub, bossa, jungle, and other dance-floor staples into something appealing to a wide array of music fans – from club kids to All Songs Considered types.
Maybe you are on the fence about going out on a Thursday night? Let us make it easier for you. We have two pairs of tickets to give away to see DJ Tudo at LIV. Tickets for this show are also available for $12 in advance or $18 at the door.
For your chance to win these tickets simply leave a comment on this post using a valid email address between now and 8:00 tonight. One entry per email address, please.
Comments will be closed at 8pm and a winner will be randomly selected. The winner will be notified by email. The winner must respond to our email by noon Thursday with the names to be added to the guest list at LIV or tickets will be forfeited and given to someone else. Winners must be 21+ with valid ID.
This is a shorter timeline than our usual Winning Ticket contests, so please check your iCal, friends, etc as quickly as possible and get free tickets to a really fun show.
