The Big Beat Bossa Nova Battle @ Derby City Espresso – 3/5

Okay, I’ve got an event for you guys that is so unhip it’s hip.

Blake, the DJ of the Wednesday Mod Nights at Derby City Espresso is doing something a little different next week (Mar. 5). This time around, he’s only playing bossa nova, latin, mod jazz, Sergio Mendes/”Girl From Ipanema” type stuff. Basically, all the record store dollar bin favorites, from Harry Belafonte to Brasil ’66, pretty much mellow music that you sip martinis to while you’re wearing your smoking jacket. It’s so the opposite of cool that it could be kind of cool; or at the very least a good excuse to get out on a Wednesday night and play some pinball and drink a couple.

update: Doug might be spinning mod that night as well.



  1. Thanks a lot guys!
