Six years ago, DJs Marcelo C. Baez and Amylu Meneses had a revolutionary idea: Blend the trashiest Latin music from the ’70s and ’80s with modern beats, and invite all of New York City. Packed with naco (which means “tacky” in Spanish) yet lovable hipsters who just want to dance, the result was Nacotheque, one of the most insane parties in the city. Tonight’s anniversary party won’t be short of full glam-mayhem, with a special performance by pop-synth singer Javiera Mena, free drinks, “spicy” surprises, and a “naughty” birthday cake. Make a wish, guys!
