Opa En Brasil!

It's bad enough that I slept on plans to go to see Diplo in Boston tonite, but sitting at home in my air-conditioned apartment eating chocolate I've come across the show's opener: Bondo De Role.

We're having fun...honest! See below if you don't believe us...

Pronounced "bonn-juh doo ho-lay," you could say it's an equation of 3 MCs + 2 DJs = 5 stars. Whereas "Solta O Frango" sounds like a cha-cha Psapp, "Melo Do Tabaco" is Kathleen Hannah a la Bikini Kill abandoning the English language against a turntable chop n' screw of Ugly Kid Joe's "Man In A Box."

Ugly Kid Joe! I could be at Great Scott right now and nostalgic about that stupid, Alice In Chains-wannabe band from the 90s that made my Beavis & Butt-head loving, 13 year old self swoon.

Don't even get me started on the AC/DC-meets-Salt n' Pepa magic on "Melo Do Vitiligo"...so good.

Do yourself a favor and go see them...for me:

...told you so!
