For the last 15 years, DJ Rekha’s Basement Bhangra party has exposed the city to the South Asian dance music and in turn exposed artists such as Punjabi MC and M.I.A. to the city, booking them to perform when few else were listening. Tonight, to celebrate, Dhol Nation performs and Rehka, Eddie Stats, and Ranbir S. DJ, adding another remarkable event to the host venue’s “I Love S.O.B.’s Music Fest,”during which a $100 badge gets you free access to every show that goes down in the month of April, a list that includes not just these monthly dance nights but performances by rappers such as Schoolboy Q (April 11) and Shabazz Palaces (April 13) and r&b singer-songwriter Mateo (April 24).
