Austinites in search of a remixed, internationally informed good time have maintained a weekly go-to since 2013: Crashing in With King Louie. An influential force in the city’s now-familiar integration of cumbia, hip-hop, house, and more, the DJ packs a dance floor with genre-spanning selections. Maestro of the Friday residency messages: “‘Crashing in’ started around the time that many Red River District venues were shutting down due to sound ordinance restrictions and rising rent prices. Heading east of I-35 felt like the right move and Volstead would soon become home.” The Madrid-born and Mexico-raised DJ, also of the cross-border collective Peligrosa, adds: “What was once a monthly party soon turned into a weekly bash heading into year two. A pivotal moment … occurred when Major Lazer announced at ACL that the after-party was at Volstead. That night was unforgettable and set the bar for what is now the hottest Friday night party on the Eastside.” Supernova (Pangea Sound), Orya, and RUUex add to the 7pm to 2am special.
