The Carioca crew gave gay Atlanta partiers what they wanted on Saturday–a long night of dancing, shirtlessness and an officially unofficial afterparty welcoming the DJs of Rosabel back to Atlanta for two solo sets.
It was exactly the kind of trouble that fans of the Carioca event series expect. First up was half of the internationally adored DJ duo Rosabel, Ralphi Rosario. His beats inspired some dirty deeds on and off the Jungle dance floor, where gay men of every age and every ilk came together and warmed up a cold winter night.
Carioca organizers also host after hours at Xion just down from Jungle. That presented a perfect opportunity for the other half of Rosabel, DJ Abel, to keep the party going until dawn.
