I never knew.
Apparently Juárez had a banging club scene before it became a bloodbath. It’s been riding on me for a while, why the hell all these awesome international deejays include the city on their tour– it couldn’t have had anything to do with El Paso. Or maybe it did, hm… But yeah, finally I asked someone who knew, and apparently way more deejays used to stop there. Props to those that still do (Tiga did, most recently).
