sunday april 29 | la junta 2018 kickoff

Happy April, Everyone!

Guess what?! Yep, you got it. It’s already that time of year–time to announce and promote our first LA JUNTA summer event! We thought about announcing the show on 4/1, but being that it was Easter Sunday, April Fools’ Day AND rent day, we waited until the second day of the month 😉

But no foolin’…our summer rooftop series begins this month on SUNDAY APRIL 29, just enough time for everyone to make plans with your crews, to reserve cabanas and to start working on your summer swagger. This first one is a family affair with the first band we ever booked for an event, LA’s torchbearers of funky, psychedelic cumbia, La Chamba!! The band is fresh off rocking dates for the west coast’s Chicha Summit, as well as putting the final touches on a new album of original material, so the band is tight as ever.

They’ll be joined by our friends, another fantastic southland Afro-Latin band making a lot of noise via a recently released 7″ single on renowned Brooklyn label Names You Can Trust. Get ready to check out El Santo Golpe!

As always, our resident good guys– Yuki , David Cardena-degruvme & Glenn Red –will be mixin’ the summertime feel good rhythms on the decks, so let’s kick off another amazing summer up on the roof.

Even though we announced that LA JUNTA will be celebrating the 2018 New Year’s Eve by hosting our PIÑA event on Sunday December 31st, the upcoming second Friday of the month falls during this week on DECEMBER 8, meaning it’s our regular PIÑA party! Above is he flier that I created for it last night. When I sent it out to them this morning, the team immediately alerted me that I had made a couple of mistakes on the date. AND I realized that I hadn’t added the signature pineapple in the background. Anyway I love how it turned out! The pink, chocolate, black and bamboo green tones look great together.

Pictured on the flier is the Vietnamese pop group “3 Trái Táo” (The Apples 3, circa 1975).
If you’re anywhere near DTLA this Friday night, definitely stop by El Dorado DTLA! 9pm / Free.

New (year’s) business. If you’re in LA for 2018 NYE, join LA JUNTA crew for a special edition of PIÑA!! Not only will we be rockin’ the main room dance floor with our signature Afro-Latin tropical fire, but yours truly and a good friend TBA will be coolin’ out in the back room called The Stowaway with some deep and heavy jazz, hip-hop, and eclectic soul sounds.

We’re offering a VERY limited amount of $5 presale tickets via this Eventbrite link: http://bit.ly/2B0ajyT

Grateful to be back mixin’ at GENERAL LEE’S COCKTAIL HOUSE in the heart of LA’s Chinatown district this Friday November 17! It’s a great spot to both chill after a grueling work week or to jumpstart a fun weekend. The mixologists put together a great list of featured cocktails and its central location between dowtown and the eastside make it a perfect location to meet friends and recount your highs and lows for the week. I might even getcha to boogie a bit 😉 See ya on Friday!
