Casubody Sound: Cape Verdean House Party Classics

CASUBODY CLASSICS.png

To celebrate Cape Verdean Independence Day 2019, we sat with DJ Lefty to turn him + DJ Larry Love's now classic, 'CV House Party Volume 1' mix, into a playlist. These songs to many throughout the Cape Verdean diaspora served as soundtracks to family parties and just songs that continue to keep us connected to our roots while away from the motherland.

This is a very small taste of the many songs and artists that continue to define Cape Verdean culture, generation after generation. Due to lack of availability of particular records on major streaming platforms, we dug deep into YouTube to put this together. The Casubody Sound: Cape Verdean House Party Classics playlist is now available on YouTube.

PVDFest 2019 + In Good Company Recap

PVDFest 2019 was so fire. For the second year in a row, we took to the Main Stage in the middle of Kennedy Plaza for a pop-up party. The City-Wide Electric Slide was LEGENDARY! Nino killed it on the keys, that’s not regular! We’re still on a high and getting chills watching the videos.

Throughout the day, we were also able to have a few homies play sets on various stages, mad love to Charlie Tunes, Wattz, Beato and Corvah. Thank you to everyone who found the orange cart and copped some heat from our Go Outside capsule.

After the day time festivities, we had In Good Company, a post-PVDFest gathering at Trade Pop-Up to just get away from the madness and show our appreciation to some our closest friends, peers + supporters. Lena’s Kitchen cheffed up a really good all plant-based meal. Deadass didn’t know vegan pastelitos were a thing. Trust us, it’s not blasphemous. Appreciate our folks over at Red Bull for helping make that possible.

Go Outside

We're bringing the same energy that your mom had for you when you were playing Playstation for way too long. "GO OUTSIDE!" There's so much to see and do. Unplug. Release. Walk away. Go outside of your normal setting. Go outside of the box. Go outside into the world. Disconnect to reconnect.

The Go Outside capsule features a limited PVD Tee, Sunshine Tee and and Outside Tote. All items will be available during PVDFest on Saturday June 8th. Find the orange cart between 4PM and 6PM. See y’all outside.

Bucktown Wing Launch Party Recap

We linked up with our family over at Bucktown to help them launch their Wing Program. That’s just a fancy ass way to say they’ll be adding wings to their menu, and they are sooooooooooo goooood. We were able to invite some friends + family to try a few of the flavors they’re working on; Korean, BBQ, buffalo and lemon pepper (wet!).

If you haven’t been to Bucktown yet, do you even pay attention to what we talk about (rolls eyes into infinity). The wings will be added to the menu soon but until then try everything they already have on the menu — we highly recommend the chicken biscuit and po’ boys.

Eggs Over May 2019 Recap

May weather has been playing with us but the Saturday of Eggs Over was an indication of how y’all start to act when the sun comes out. The real winners are the people who come for the first seating, eat brunch and party for the rest of it.

Another observation. ‘Act Up’ by City Girls + champagne consumption = 2019 summer brunch energy.

CRIB Boston April 2019 Recap

Boston always shows out in a major way. It’s also incredible to see how much RI family pulls up too.

In April, we took over both floors of Good Life for CRIB, a party we like to call a double decker ting aka two of our parties in one building on the same night. So much love to our guest DJs, Slick Vick + Towfu for keeping the R&B energy proper in the basement.

Boston always shows out in a major way. It’s also incredible to see how much RI family pulls up too.

We’ll be back in Boston in July but sure we’ll catch y’all at the Wave or an All You Can Eat function before then.
