NYE with EL MALO & Portland Comedy Co-op
Monday - December, 31 @ 9:00pm
Come ring in the new year with laughter and dancing!
Comedy with the Portland Comedy Co-op: 9-10pm
Lively live music with El Malo: 10:30pm-12:30pm (with a break just before midnight, most likely, for obvious reasons)
El Malo is Portland's one and only "salsa core" band with a monthly residency at Blue every second Friday! They are a musical collective specializing in the sounds of Latin dance music blended with jazz, hiphop, funk, soul, and progressive rock influences.
With fresh sounding tributes to classic Latin artists and energetic original material courtesy of a lineup featuring drum kit/Latin percussion, electric guitar, bass, vocals and horns, we bring the party to any event. *Will travel more than 10 miles from Portland*
On El Malo's first (self titled) release, a low-fi Latin Jazz session recorded live in Brunswick, Maine; the Portland Phoenix published a complementary review, calling the release, in part:
"gritty and nasty in some interesting ways" and "As a whole, this album is a piece of genuinely different music-making with Latin and gypsy flavors you won't find often in Portland."
Portland Comedy Co-op brings stand-up comedy to places are all over Portland! they host the weekly stand-up show at Blue: Worst Day of The Week everything Monday night from 8pm-10pm.
