We are pleased to host Very Be Careful as part of our integrated series at N4th Theatre, where we bring musicians to perform for the artists with developmental disabilities at N4th and invite the community to come join the fun and see the great work they do there. Community spots are limited to 60 people and reservations are required.

Adventure has never been a task for Very Be Careful [website | Amazon.com]. A Caribbean soul and a California heart have sustained two decades of ceaseless romp-downs and raucous times for L.A.'s vallenato veteranos, inciting tens of thousands of men, women, children, and even some wild animals, to boogie to the Colombian coastal beat. From the debaucherous streets of Austin's SXSW to the cultural pinnacles of New York's Central Park Summerstage and London's Hammersmith Apollo, Very Be Careful has tamed the beasts within or unleashed the ones without, helping to popularize the beauty of the 1950s-1970s sound of Colombian vallenato and cumbia.

Bootlegged across the Americas, pumped in the clubs, and ripped in cyberspace and the airwaves around the world, Very Be Careful forges ahead globetrotting alongside legends and antiheroes. Their infamous fifteen-year tradition hosting old school "dances" for Valentine's Day, New Year's Eve, 20 de Julio, Halloween, and the legendary July Fourth Brooklyn "Cumbia Under The Sparks" rooftop affair has brought together people from around the globe itchin' for those early roots sounds that prove a stripped down parranda is the fiercest and funnest way to party.

"A VBC show isn't so much a performance as a communal celebration; it's very much an interactive experience, and the driving, pounding rhythms make it practically impossible not to dance. The music is as authentic as it gets, but also possesses an urban punk quality that makes it totally current and relevant. It literally transcends social barriers with indie kids, neighborhood locals, hipsters and hip-hop dudes all in attendance and equally united in appreciation." (L.A. Record)
