Armin Van Buuren, be damned. Heineken might be Dutch but left-of-center Latin music is what it’s meant to be drank to, and to prove it they’ve organized “The Spot,” a series of performances and parties (curated by Latin nightlife guide Remezcla) featuring Tego Calderon, Los Rakas, Maluca and more at a top-secret location in New York City. We can’t tell you where Los Rakas, Maluca and Brazilian baile funk star Zuzuka Poderosa will be this Thursday night (July 21st) at 8 PM but we do have two free pairs of tickets to the event to give away. For your chance, follow us on twitter and tweet the following phrase: I want to win tix to see Los Rakas & Maluca at #TheSpot by #Heineken this thursday thanks to @largeupdotcom. Remember you MUST follow @largeupdotcom so we can DM you confirmation and details on how to collect your tix if you win (and if you can’t spell ‘Maluca’ correctly, we’re sorry but you don’t qualify). In the meantime, get familiar by watching our Now Things webisodes with Maluca and Los Rakas, and check a video preview of the series (which actually kicked off last week—sorry, Tego fans) below.
