We honor Mexico almost every day at our favorite taco stand come lunchtime, but on September 16, we like to step it up a notch—and rightly so. It’s Mexico’s Independence Day! DJ Marcelo (of Nacotheque) is throwing the craziest Mexican Independence Day fiesta ¡Viva Mexico, Cabrones! All night, he’ll be playing the best Spanish music, including cumbia, nortena, pop, baladas, rock, dance, and more. Of course, a Mexican party wouldn’t be a Mexican party without a live mariachi performance and a special guest. Viva Mexico, indeed.
