San Francisco's premiere global beats party night, Tormenta Tropical, is celebrating its second anniversary this Saturday at the Elbo Room. The club, put on by Bersa Discos label-heads Disco Shawn (a.k.a. XLR8R Managing Editor Shawn Reynaldo) and Oro11, is a mainstay in SF for those looking for choice cumbia, dancehall, and electro tracks to get down to. This special edition of Tormenta Tropical features two of Bersa Discos' most interesting DJ/producers, DJ Panik from Texas and NY's Uproot Andy (who was just featured in XLR8R's year-end issue). Check out the flier for this weekend's event below.
