So winter is officially upon us again, but that’s ok, we are still going warm things up and hope that you get down and dirty on FEBRUARY 1 at the BRILLBOX.  We are gonna cure your seasonal ills and soothe your cabin fevered souls by shoving some more bass heavy tropical jamz down your thoats.  This month we got special guest from WRCT…DJ ZOMBO (in your brain).  He will be here with plenty of Kitchy Bollywood, Bellydance, Romanian Ruckus, Old School Ska, and even a few new Arabic tracks.  Also on the bill is Resident…Pandemic Pete with his arsenal of whatever in the hell it is that he regularly plays.

Again we would like to thank Harlan Twins, Pittsburgh Track Authority, Brillobox, and everyone who came out to celebrate the new year with us.  It was a hell of party.  I’d also like to thank Preslav, Velin, and Dave Cherry for all their hard work in putting together the CHALGA PARTY last week.  That was sooooo much fun.  Keep an eye out for another chalga party in a few months. This time with even bigger and better things to in store.

ok so here is the Facebook EVENT PAGE and flyer for FEBRUARY 1… Oh and like us on FB.  We started this thing a long time ago and never really add to it, but it’s kinda pathetic we only have a few likes and we been doing this for 7+ years and still rocking!
