Uma Nota‘s dance and live music events have gotten to the point that they fill large venues now, and have their own festival. But for a four year streak, they were held at the Gladstone Hotel’s Ballroom. Now they’re headed back to the Gladstone for an Uma Nota Throwback Edition, to celebrate the sixth year of the series, with returning guests like Mar Aberto SoundSystem and General Eclectic, and new guest Andycapp of Bang the Party.
