saturday february 23 | vivo

I’m back in Long Beach this Saturday with homie and amazing deejay, EUSÉBIO AKASA, for the second episode of our rebranded ‘VIVO’ event! We began this musical partnership at Mezcalero LBC in April of 2018 and we’ve been picking up some steam as we approach one year of rocking the spot together every fourth Saturday of the month. We’re looking forward to another good one here in February with the temperatures in Southern California starting to climb just a bit after lots and lots of much needed rain, and it’s looking green and beautiful all over. As always, we put down the perfect music by which to sip and to celebrate it.

thursday jan 24 | yanga release party

LA JUNTA are excited to support our friends from YANGA, SoCal’s foremost torchbearers of traditional Afro-Colombian rhythms, as they celebrate the release of two volume singles on Brooklyn-based record label NAMES YOU CAN TRUST. For those who’ve followed La Junta for some time, you already know how much we love the band and that we’re thrilled to work with them every time. The bill also includes the funky, psychedelic Latin sounds of SISTER MANTOS as well as the high energy, discolicious selections of DJ VICK JAGGER. MEL LOERA (formerly of Miss Chief) hosts the evening.
