I’ve been asked to be the deejay for the debut of a new dance night at THE CONTINENTAL CLUB in Downtown Los Angeles, happening on THURSDAY OCTOBER 1ST! The event is called THE CONFESSIONAL. I was booked for the event based on my musical style behind the decks at Afro Funké, so expect the same blend of raw, heavy, rhythmic and soulful goodness with some sharp, tight and clean edges for a night out in the heart of our urban metropolis. Come out for a great time at this classic cocktail lounge and let’s conversate deeply in music and movement.
FREE with RSVP at the Eventbrite link.
Here are this week’s upcoming gigs (Wednesday & Friday) if you’re in the vicinity of Los Angeles, California. CANTO is my global roots party on Third Wednesdays in Highland Park, while Friday’s HEARTBEAT event is one that I occasionally sit in on with resident MEKONNEN GAREDEW, for some cool, soulful uptown type sounds in the heart of Chinatown. Stop in some time 🙂 Also be sure to check out the sidebar widget titled ‘Mixing It Up’ for my schedule of upcoming giggage.
While I expressed my Thank You’s on Facebook a few days after the final La Junta event of the summer, I’ve gotten so busy with projects that I’m just now getting back to the ol’ weblog to share some stuff and express the love. THANK YOU to those of you who attended any of our LA JUNTA events this summer! It was a fantastic third season full of growth, the forging of new friendships, and the strengthening of familiar ties. Our team was blessed to have a grateful, open-eared, open-hearted eventgoers all summer, as well as an array of fantastic talent gracing the turntables, microphones and speakers. We can’t wait to do it again next summer, but be on the lookout for a couple of one-off events until then 😉
This was the final flier of the season. MUCH LOVE and RESPECT to GINGEE and VALENTÍN, and all of our guests for making the La Junta 2015 Summer Finale one to hold on to!
