“Sweet Cheeks was inspired by the fact that, from my experiences, when one goes out to a bar or venue and wants to hear different music, no one ever thinks of the ladies, let alone the music that creates babies,” says Popcorn & Jelly promoter Marcus “Mawkus” Rosario, who held his first Sweet Cheeks monthly at Til Two Club in March.

“Living in San Diego, it's become common to hear DJs play all kinds of music that keeps dance floors full of dudes standing. Because of this, Sweet Cheeks was created to provide a space for new music you wouldn't ever really hear, focalizing on hybridized genres that could essentially be broken down to be described as ‘future sexual chocolate.’

"While there are nights that do cater to progressive and forward-thinking music, like much of what Kava Lounge puts on through their Galactic Reign and Critical Beatdown monthlies, Sweet Cheeks takes it more from a DJ's perspective. All the night wants to accomplish is to break new music, revisit often forgotten music and help create something different for those that want to get open on a different level.”

Sweet Cheeks features resident DJ’s Mawkus, Abiva, and Awnode playing future funk, future wife, classic R&B, 80s boogie-funk, and beats.

The dance night has seen sets from DJ Pound and Foniks and anticipates future panty-dropping performances from Siik and Curtis Vodka.

Knock a few back before getting knocked up at the third installment of Sweet Cheeks this Saturday, June 4, at Til Two Club.

Ring Pops will be on hand to facilitate impromptu dance floor engagements.
