my new obsession: MALUCA


if you haven’t heard of her, you will. before monday i had not heard of her either, i had planned to go to one of my favorite destinations on monday nites in downtown la (mustache) with a friend. besides having awesome music mustache also presents an array of performance artist, singers, dancers, drag queens, lets just say performers of all types. i was checking out flyer for the event and headlining was maluca, decided to look her up… found out she is from nyc and she has a single out produced by diplo. i was intrigued and had to listen to it.
the single is called “el tigreaso” (which you can listen to below)

which i loved!!! i was excited to see her perform. unfortunately she only performed 2 songs i believe (i had one to many drinks) i had to go up to her and tell her that i loved her, she was a doll and super sweet. she also took a picture with us. she also let us know that she was going to be playing the day after at another bar in la.
day after decided that we loved maluca so much that we had to see her last performance in la. we left my place around 10pm it takes us about 35-45 minutes to get to la… well it took us 2 hours… partly my fault, partly not…
one there was traffic
two we missed the freeway
three the freeway on the opposite direction was closed so we had to do a detour
and lastly we made a wrong turn and ended up in a not so pretty side of town.
finally we made it to the sliver platter found parking a few blocks up
walking up to the club and we see maluca standing outside, we’re both hoping that she hasn’t played yet.
we went up to her and say hello and ask her if she’d played yet, she said no that she had been waiting for friend called her a ”mentirosa” (liar in spanish) we all laughed.
we went on to tell her that it took us 2 hours to get there, she was very thankful that we’d do that just to see her. and told us she’d make it worth it, and she did she performed i believe it was about 4 or 5 numbers. she went all out, i can’t wait for a single or ep from her!

Yes, this shit is the Jam! Heard it on her MS page after hearing about her via SXSW. Like sexy Fulanito madness. She had another track which sounded completely merengue punk rock. She will blow up. She's on twitter.

Best from Brooklyn,

oh shit! that's me in the red, holding the XX...

See? Told you! Not a hipster.

Anyways, yeah that's the thing I didn't like about Mustache Mondays their sets are too short. But Wildness performance was awesome.

I can't wait to be in NY this weekend and track her down...


That's some hot music. Love it

not only are you an 'angry faggot" you totally misinterpreted my post to you and then blocked me. I was AGREEING with you on your position. How childish of you.

Please do yourself a favor... and grow up.

I was there when she performed for the Mustache Mondays crowd on a Saturday. She performed about 5 numbers with her back up dancers. FIERCE!!!
