thursday may 30 | nu tropic radio

Just a few weeks after mixing a dance floor set at his monthly Thursday night event in Echo Park, I’ll once again join my good amigo DJ Manofor a cyberspace excursion on NuTropic Radio on the popular, long-running LA-based platform, dublab.com. Tune in from 4pm to 6pm PDT as we both get warmed up for appearances later that evening as Afro Funké goes off in Venice (see my next post)!

thursday may 2 | nu tropic

I love hangin’ out at their events whenever I get the chance, but it’s been a minute since I’ve gotten down with DJ’s Mano, Seano & Maple Syrup of the NuTropic crew. The last time I did it was as part of La Junta Sound System back in 2017, hmm…maybe even 2016 as one of their first bookings. This time it goes down this Thursday May 2nd at The Short Stop in Echo Park. Come hit the dance floor (and/or the bar) with us!

Check out the NuTropic 046 Event Page.

sunday may 26 | la junta kickoff

Alright, friends…
[drum roll please]
Announcing…our first summer show of the year!!!

We know many of you have been waiting to see what La Junta’s summer event schedule is going to look like, but believe us when we say that no one has been feeling the anticipation more than we have! Now that things are set and we’re starting to prepare for show day, it’s time to share it with you:

LA JUNTA 2019 SUMMER KICKOFF BRUNCH

That’s right…New season, New venue, New hours! We jumped with excitement at the opportunity to host our signature outdoor gathering at LA’s newest hub for community entertainment and we can’t wait to be out in the sunshine with you. With the venue also came the option to try a new format for our party and the idea of Sunday Brunch set to La Junta’s brand of tropical music and accompanied by a mimosa station and three full bars sounds sublime. Right?!

Not everything has changed though. As always, our resident good guys, La Junta Sound System, rock it from the decks, joined onstage by the fun, guitar riffing, cowbell slinging sounds of LA’s Spaghetti Cumbia!! So get ready to text and tag your crew on our event page as we kick off another summer of music, sunshine and friends. La Junta is back!!
