Flux Playlist: Cinco de Mayo!

-Flux Blog Staff

It’s Cinco de Mayo, which means it’s the second day on the calendar that has nothing to do with our country, yet gives us an occasion in which it is perfectly acceptable to binge drink (if you’re 21, of course). So we at the Flux blog couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo than to dedicate our weekly playlist to the holiday. So enjoy our playlist as you set off to have a fun (and safe) Cinco de Mayo!
