Newly opened Digress Restaurant & Lounge is holding its first major live music ‘Big Bang Saturday’ event on 28th April.

Presented in conjunction with ANU’s Centre for Latin American Studies (ANCLAS) the night will go off with a bang featuring the carnival sounds of LOS CHAVOS, a local 8 piece collective playing reggae, latin ska, cumbia, samba and whose energy burns up any dancefloor from Canberra to the Caribbean.


LOS CHAVOS have been playing festivals and venues in and around Canberra since 2006. Made up of talented local jazz musicians and headed by Andy Jauregui, a former latin rock singer from Cochabamba (Bolivia) the bands punchy horns and infections street rhythms are not be to resisted.
Supported by local DJs Alex Carder + Rafa Chango spinning urban latino sounds and with $5 Absolut Vodka between 9-11pm the night will be one to remember! [www.facebook.com/loschavosmusic]

Digress, a locally owned establishment, believes heavily in promoting young talent and the student culture in Canberra. The event will be run with the help of the ANU Latin America Students Association (LASA) and ANCLAS, who bring together students, scholars and others interested in Latin America and regularly run public lectures, seminars, film showings and cultural events associated with this fascinating part of the world.

Digress’s décor is European inspired unlike anything seen anywhere in Canberra. With a fine dining restaurant and a cocktail/tapas lounge separated by a glass partition. Digress is also the only late night venue that has an extensive tapas menu available until midnight every weekend. [www.digress.com.au ]
