Motown On Mondays is a Motown-inspired dance party that has been birthed by DJ Gordo Cabeza (of San Francisco), back in 2009. If you’re a 90s head, some of your favorite hiphop joints have Motown samples in them (s/o J Dilla and a number of others). Anyhow, this music event was designed to reconnect with the people who grew up listening to the music, and, in the case of DJ Gordon Cabeza), help reconnect with the music that was the soundtrack to his childhood.
Motown On Mondays (or MOM) in San Francisco have eventually enlisted DJs Timoteo Gigante, Phleck, Matteo, U9LIFT, and a host of other talented Bay Area DJs. It has become so successful that they started branching off in Hawaii and in Los Angeles, and now they’re preparing for a few launches in Detroit, Chicago, and in New York (which will be having their first party on October 1st)! The MOM crew will be going international and setting of sparks sometime next year, so be on the lookout for that! Mind you, you dont have to pay a single dime to get in! Just enjoy the music and have fun!
Tomorrow night, DJs Chorizo Funk & Jesse De La Pena will be joining MOM_LA resident DJs Expo & Monalisa on the boards to give you some rare grooves to dance to. It will be going down at The Short Stop in Echo Park. Free to get in all night, so come by and chill!
