Scatter Scatter Tropical Disco is here to stay

Scatter_Feb2014-A3-proof

Scatter Scatter is back this Saturday night, Feb. 1 – and will become a monthly fixture at Boney on the second Saturday of every month, starting March 8. If you have a taste for the tropics and a passion for the sounds of afro, cumbia, latin, soca and island disco, Scatter Scatter is the only place to be… Non-stop tropical disco from dusk ’til dawn.

This Saturday features live band Jaspora playing their soca-reggae-island sounds, along with Jumps (Cat Empire), DJ Manchild,  Julien MF Love, Medhi (fresh from the steamy tropics of Adelaide), some guy called Jimmy Caution and The Public Opinion Sound System.

The Public Opinion Sound System features DJ Manchild, MC 1/6, N’fa Jones & Future Roots. Turntables, live percussion, chants and rapping will take you on a trip though the tropical and tribal rhythms of Africa and South America, weaving through the hip-hop and beat driven sounds from the blocks of Melbourne.

Doors open around 9pm – band on stage around midnight. Arrive early if you please – or come late and dance until 7am!
