Ephniko Performs With L.A.'s Arroz Con Leche Tomorrow Night at Transit Lounge

​Who doesn't like arroz con leche?  It's rice, condensed milk, and lots of sugar, sometimes with cinnamon sprinkled on top, served either hot or cold. As such it's a dessert meant for the gods (or cheap foodies like myself).  But enough of the actual food. Why not try out Arroz con Leche, a L.A. based collective of socially conscious hip-hop enthusiasts who, in their own words, "really care about advancing GOOD music in a positive way."   

ACL makes their Miami debut with not just one but two events this Friday night, doing their best to promote some great left-of-center Latin hip-hop. It begins at 7 p.m. with the inaugural installment of their Social Media and Latin Music Panel, followed by a full-out party jamboree at Transit Lounge featuring DJs Geko Jones and Uproot Andy from NYC who will be spinning their version of digital cumbia and tropical bass. The night's lineup will be capped off by Miami MC Ephniko and DJ Ras Pablo. Ephniko's insane-in-the-membrane stage performance is now accompanied by a  full live band band, so this show is sure to blow any subwoofer sound system to bits! The best part of all this? It's free. Arroz con leche never tasted so sweet. 

Arroz con Leche's Social Media and Latin Music Panel starts at 7 p.m., and the show with DJ Geko Jones, DJ Uproot Andy, DJ Ras Pablo and Ephniko follows at 10 p.m. Friday, October 2. Both events are at Transit Lounge, 729 SW 1st Ave., Miami, FL 33130. Admission is free. Ages 21+ with ID. arrozconleche.org
