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 feb 14 | brinca

The year is already moving fast so La Junta crew are here checking in and letting you know about something new. We’re throwing our first ever Valentine’s Day dance party!

On the evening of Thursday, February 14, you’re invited to our event BRINCA (jump!), twenty-one floors above the hustle and bustle of our city, along the DTLA skyline at the beautiful ELEVATE LOUNGE. We can’t wait for you to see the space and all the good vibes we hope to create together. Couples, singles and groups big or small are invited to come on up and dance hard with all the Love you’ve got!

Along with our friends 2Deep, Rickstarr, and Becca of the widely popular Gasolina party, La Junta Sound System (Glenn Red, degruvme & Yukicito) will be rocking sets of our fiercest dance floor jams, so expect big beat cumbia, reggaeton, tropical bass, Latin hip-hop, afrobeats, dembow, moombahton and more. In other words, get your slow dancing in before you arrive and be ready to jump 😉

Make sure to get your Valentine “kisses” from our beautiful hosts Rebecca Mercedes Guzman (Gasolina Party) & Prescilla Cardena (La Junta LA). Tell your lover, tell your friends and let’s celebrate and elevate.

Hey Hey. Happy Happy, Everybody!

Though we’re all barely getting our feet back on the ground in this brand new year, January 11th is the first second Friday, which means it’s time for the return of PIÑA at its regularly scheduled slot!! Since all four of the crew were in Tucson for the December edition, and half the crew were out on vacation during our NYE party, we’re excited to all be back together with you at El Dorado this week, which means that DEGRUVME will be back on the decks and PRESCILLA will be at large shooting all your beautiful faces and hottest dance moves 🙂 Plus, our fantastic new deejay friend M*FLO holds down the guest duties in the Coco Lounge! See you down under the ground!
