Whoa! This is probably the earliest I’ve ever promoted out in front of this monthly fourth Saturday event that I do in Long Beach, but for some reason I already have a good feeling about it. I’m back though on Saturday September 28th with fellow resident and recent birthday boy Eusébio Akasa at Mezcalero LBC for the event we call VIVO! Here, we rock many of the finest tunes in cumbia, afrobeat, funk, samba, salsa, hip-hop, reggaeton, afropop, and Caribbean rhythms and more. Come check it out as we get live on the second floor cantina! It’s free and poppin’!

La Junta Sound System is back in Boyle Heights this Saturday night (and every first Saturday) at Xelas for the thing we call ‘Bump’! The evening’s music includes our irresistible blend of Afro-Latin street party sounds mixed with extra helpings of hip-hop, disco, funky throwbacks, 80s faves and soulful party jams bumpin’ out of a clean and powerful QSC audio system. Come out for some brews and work it away on the dance floor!
