Mustache with Nacho Nava
Promoter Nacho Nava tells all about LA’s premier queer club night, from all-star surprise performances to its inclusive, communal energy.
To coincide with the Red Bull Music Academy Festival touching down in Los Angeles this month, Mexico City’s outsider dance crew will be broadcasting this episode live from our pop-up radio studio just south of the Arts District. Mexican Jihad, Fausto Bahía and Lao welcome Nacho Nava of weekly dance party Mustache Mondays for a discussion of the LA queer institution’s most fabulous moments and how he has cultivated its radiant energy over nearly a decade of weeknight blowouts. Nava offers a selection of Mustache party-starters, from Maluca’s “Big Bad Bangs” to Kelela’s “Better.” In the second hour, resident DJ and cofounder Josh Peace and Nguzunguzu’s Asmara provide back-to-back sets of glittering house music and future bass darkness.
