Argentinean rock band formed in 1991. Their first hit came out the following year. The Sony Music album La Pachanga, which includes a song by the same name, sold more than 100,000 copies and its main title was an instant hit in South America. Vocalist Mario Gómez and guitarist Jorge Risso were previously playing in a band called Identikit. The group didn’t get the good reviews they were expecting, so they decided to start a new project along with drummer Carlos González, bassist Gerardo Pugliani, keyboardist Gustavo Sacchetti, and singers Karina Di Lorenzo and Natalia Moscariello. Vilma Palma e Vampiros recorded 3980 in 1993, reaching platinum status in their country and touring around Latin America. In 1994, Fondo Profundo proved their popularity in the Latin market. The album was followed by 1995′s Sepia, Blanco y Negro, 1996′s En Vivo, 1997′s Angeles y Demonios, and 15 Grandes Exitos, a compilation of their greatest hits. In 1998, Vilma Palma e Vampiros released Hecatombe Disco and, with the beginning of the new millennium, the album 7.

The reopening of Echostage in NE DC’s Langdon neighborhood has reestablished The District’s #1 nightlife concert series. Internationally recognized, Glow has been bringing the world’s best DJs to DC since 1999. David Guetta referred to it as his favorite party in the world in 2010.
Recent Glow at Echostage events featuring David Guetta and Calvin Harris have cemented a large-scale, weekly concert option for Washingtonians.
With a sizable production (stage, LED wall/lasers, the same sound system that tours with Coldplay), wrap-around mezzanine, four bars and a ‘no-frills’ warehouse-style vibe; Echostage was named the #38 club worldwide (#4 in America) in the 2013 DJ Magazine Top 100 Clubs poll. The publication’s yearly DJ and club listings are definitive guides to global dance music trends.

While Glow’s weekly ‘EDM’ series is the foundation of Echostage events, they are far from the only options the venue offers. Inauguration Weekend saw hip-hop icon 50 Cent and the infamous Young Jeezy perform together. African stars Teddy Afro and Jah Lude have also performed for Washington’s sizeable Ethiopian community. The venue also hosts a World Boxing Union event this June. With more concert events in the pipeline, Echostage has, according to many, skyrocketed to the top position when it comes to concert venues in DC.
