Super Bowl 2010: Jazid's Weekend Festivities

Are you one of those people who absolutely dreads when a major event comes to town? Perhaps you're one of many SoBe residents who stays at a friend's when the boat show rolls in, or leaves town entirely for Memorial Day. If so, the draw of celebrity parties for Super Bowl weekend, probably isn't too enticing. Well, fuck Nas and Goodie Mob at Living Room on Friday then. The hell with Santana and Sinorice Moss at B.E.D. Who the hell wants to see Ludacris at Cameo on Saturday? Pretty Ricky, Chad Ochocinco, Antonio Freeman and Daunte Culpepper at a Shore Club pool Party? No thanks.

But if you're still beach-bound and don't want to deal with the hoopla, Jazid is breaking out the top shelf in local performers for Super Bowl weekend. Tonight they've got the masters of cumbia-fusion, Locos Por Juana, displaying live and in the flesh via their one of a kind hybrid sound exactly what two Grammy nods sound like. And Saturday the party continues with Suenalo, providing fans with their own lush blend of rumba, Afro-Cuban, son, cumbia, funk and more.

There'll be drink specials too. And if you needed any more coaxing, you're almost 100% guaranteed not to get inadvertently shot when an NFL pro's concealed handgun goes off on the dance floor.
