Hello dear friends and supporters! This is Amar here, filling in on making this week’s post. I first want to give a big shout out to thank our awesome “Post Master” LAURA ELISABETH, who has been doing our weekly website posts for a few months now. I also want to send out a Huge Thank You to CALAMITY SAM, who built our website, maintained it and made the weekly posts for the first 150-or-so weeks since we started Underground Nomads.

So … Now to the coming week’s lineup:
This coming Tuesday, i’ll be back on the decks (Hi, I’m Amar πŸ™‚ ), and we’ll have performances by our awesome resident dancers Dalila Jasmin and Shondell.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

So join us again, as always, at 1192 Folsom this coming Tuesday night so the Underground Nomads fam can bring you the love and light!

You guys!!!!! GUESS WHO’S BACK AND DOING A GUEST SET AT UNDERGROUND NOMADS??!?!? SANTEROOOOO!!!!!!Β Can you tell we’re excited to have our buddy back behind the decks after so long?! Santero always plays a great set, and well- we just love the heck outta him. Come out and dance to his beats- since we don’t get to hear and see him as often anymore!

We’ve got a line up to match our excitement to have Santero back- SALIMPOUR SCHOOL, MILLE ROSE, ONYX, and KAMILLE will all be gracing the floor with their talents.

April 12th: Rafael | Wendy Marlatt, Amberetta, Surreyya, May Yang

April is chugging along……and Amar and Sam are making their way through vacation times! Which means- RAFAEL is back to take over Amar’s 2nd Tuesday DJ spot. Rafael never disappoints, and always gets you moving. The last time he played, it was an 80’s explosion of fun. Oh yeah. Don’t miss him.

FatChanceBellyDance can’t make it to their normal 2nd Tuesday spot- BUT NEVER FEAR! We have some lovely ladies that will entertain and delight. Come on down and see the talents of WENDY MARLATT, AMBERETTA, SURREYYA, and MAY YANG. That’s a damn good line up, I say. Damn good.

We appreciate our Underground Nomads family, and really cherish this community that fosters growth in artists. Thank you for your support!

Joro Boro

Joro-Boro is a crypto crunk charlatan born in Bulgaria. He plays and promotes etnoteck, glitch-folk and post-national bass – the dirty local side of globalization force-fed back into a party without borders detonating the conglomerated mono-culture. Joro-Boro established himself at the Bulgarian Bar (Mehanata) in New York City where he was the resident DJ alongside Eugene Hutz (Gogol Bordello) for seven years. He has toured withΒ Balkan Beat Box, and has performed with artists ranging fromΒ BassnectarΒ toΒ Tinariwen.
