As host of ¡Chale Vato!, Laru Loud -- better known to some as Raul San Miguel, the nightlife photographer who's shot your band, your fashion show and probably your epic party -- brings the bass to the Squire Lounge tonight. This once-a-month gathering is a must for dubstep fans and house-heads alike, with Laru Loud and regular partners-in-crime Matt Farry and Thin Air bringing grimy beats to your Monday.
If you like what you hear, take note: This free party is usually on the first Monday of the month, but the crew decided to push it back a week in November to allow for Halloween-weekend recovery. Beauty Bar's Sex Panther party regular JGrilla will guest-DJ tonight, and in December, ¡Chale Vato! will be throwing an all-vinyl night with additional, yet-to-be-named guest DJs. The night is 21-plus, there's no cover, and things pop off around 10 p.m.
