BLOW YOUR HEAD
On the surface, an odd matchup: What does punk rock have in common with moombahton, the dance subgenre that Dave Nada accidentally invented when he slowed club records (like Afrojack's "Moombah" remix) to reggaeton speeds. But if anyone can make this work, its the Death Set, the Brooklyn-by-way-of-Australia rockers who mix rap and Baltimore club into their always-rowdy live sets. Moombahton might be the underdog tonight, but it will be well represented by Phi Unit and Cousin Cole, who explored the genre’s softer side on December’s "So Emotional" EP and keep 2A bouncing with their monthly Moombahton Maxxin party.
