Next weekend, Theoryon Records will relaunch its weekly Hangover Sundays at hopping hot-spot PRL Euro Cafe off Hollywood Boulevard. If you've been to PRL -- and you likely have -- you know that atmosphere is abundant at the cozy hangout. That's a principal reason why the label's Ryan De La Torre decided to host his early-night party there again.
"The vibe at PRL is very underground and laid-back with a splash of art," he points out, adding, that there are "over 100 beers on tap with such exotic names as: Delirium, Zywiec, Framboise or Skull Splitter..." You get the idea. There's plenty of finely titled brews.
But the mood of Hangover Sundays is truly guided by the music it showcases. "I decided to do it early so that when people come out, they can really hear and take an educated listen to the music versus getting to the club after midnight and focusing more on raging out."
Torre tells us that you can expect "deep minimal type of dubstep and future bass music. It's bass-heavy with lots of dark bass lines and dubby sounds." And the night usually rakes in about 40 to 50 partygoers.
Since it takes place on Sunday, Torre was mindful to keep the party a modest 7 p.m. to midnight, so that working ladies and gents can hit the sack early enough to not regret it when awakened by their Monday-morning alarms.
For their homecoming party on April 6, Torre himself will be DJing under the moniker RekOne, along with some special guests. Torre was kind enough to give us a little preview of what to expect that night, which you can listen to here.
Hangover Sundays, 7 p.m. to midnight, April 6, PRL, 1904 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood. Call 954-922-9775, or visit prlcafe.com.
