LIVE:
Melim @ Midem (Centro) – This is a free open-air performance in the heart of Rio from one of Brazil’s biggest contemporary bands.

Famous for their hit songs such as ‘Meu Abrigo,’ ‘Ouvi Dizer,’ and ‘Dois Corações,’ Melim are a trio of siblings from Niterói who shot to fame in 2016 after taking part in the Brazilian reality show ‘Superstar.’ They are currently supporting their eponymous 2018 debut album.

This show is scheduled to start at 9:50PM in Centro’s Praça Tiradentes.

PARTY:
The Glow Party! @ New Mariuzinn (Copacabana) – This is the Monday night party in Rio’s famous Copacabana neighborhood, with free caipirinhas until midnight, random tequila shots, and special promotions on beers and vodka energy drinks.

The music for the night will feature a live samba act. Then DJ Guga Fernandes, the resident DJ, will be spinning some house, hiphop and reggaeton, followed by DJ Dluccio who will spin everything from pop, to trap, to deep house.

If you’re looking for an upscale, big club experience, this promises to be the ticket. The dancefloor will be immersed in black light and they will be handing out everything from glow paint to glow bracelets and much more. The party starts at 11PM and tickets are between R$40-R$60.
