Pseudo Cult
I love this party! Check it out: it is an alternative party that becomes a pop/old songs party throughout the night. Which means, you start heating  by “cult” artists (brazilian and international ones), goes to light songs such as Bruno Mars, and when you see it, you will be dancing a lot to the sound of old and cheesy songs!  There will be also a lot of old brazilian songs that you will probably not know the lyrics, but you should have fun anyway!
