Little Havana throws one hell of a party.
Yesterday's Calle Ocho festival gave a million people the best food, drink, and music on the streets of Miami. We fucking love this city.
The Power 96 stage was jam-packed all day. And SW 17th Avenue was so thick with bodies, it felt like one huge sea of people. Waves of human traffic flowed into and through it, creating a totally distinct soundtrack of language and culture.
It was musical as fuck, and we've got the video to prove it. Check it out.
