One of Brazil’s hottest gay DJs, Felipe Lira, is coming to Vancouver on Thursday, June 4th at Celebrities Nightclub in the first “Made in Rio” event as a fundraiser for Portuguese Heritage Month in Vancouver.
Awarded DJ of the year by “DOM” magazine and “DJ Sound” in 2008, DJ FELIPE LIRA debuts in Vancouver for the first “Made in Rio” event that welcomes the flare of Rio de Janeiro complete with samba girls and go go boys wearing the latest feathers and fashions from Brazil. Opening the night are duo Pepe Lorenzo (Portugal) and Sashko (Macedonia) to warm-up the dance floor.
From Rio de Janeiro, DJ Felipe Lira has played all the major clubs in the city of samba and capoeira as well across the country including major venues in Sao Paulo; he is the only DJ to accomplish a two-year residency at “The Week Rio” where he created the hottest after-party event the city has ever seen. Travelling around the world and regular nights at Apple Mixxx International is where he now spends most of his time. Electric-tribal and house with a Brazilian twist, Lira’s sets are made to “get the people on the dance floor, smiling, dancing and happy as if the best day of their lives.”
$15 advance tickets are available at Little Sister’s Bookstore (1238 Davie Street) and online at ClubZone.
