Much love everyone who tuned in to the La Junta LA Instagram Live earlier tonight for my dance party set celebrating the Artworx LA Gala29 fundraiser! Hope you had the chance to boogie a bit!
After only one brief shutdown by the IG powers that be, we were able to save the last 22+ minutes of the rhythmic, high energy set. They took me down for playing a cover of Nina Simone‘s ‘See Line Woman’, shortened to just ‘See Line’ by Toli & the Femm Nameless [clenching fist!]. I’m bummed that two-thirds of the broadcast was lost, but at least we have the uptempo part still. Catch in on La Junta’s IG feed @lajuntala.
For the several folks that messaged me after my set, here’s my set list below. Thanks for asking and happy hunting!
ARTIST / Tracklist
HALFRED & LoRENZO / “Inaani”
MAGA BO feat. B’NEGĀO / “Tempos Insanos [Copia Doble Systema vs. Dixon Remix]”
I’m so excited to be a part of this year’s DJ lineup for Artworx LA’s ‘Gala 29’ fundraiser–a week of online fun and fundraising to support arts education!
Join me on Tuesday, May 11th from 6pm-7pm PDT on my Instagram Live @glennzenn10 or via @artworxla, and donate to a great cause! All donations raised during my IG DJ event will go towards providing critical arts education services to LA alternative high-school students.
If all goes well, our SALA events will hopefully begin to take place in real life, live and direct! For now, though, we still gotta play it safe, and so our virtual event returns on Zoom this coming Saturday, May 8th at 8:30pm.
It’s another stellar lineup of activists, visual artists, poets, thespians, musicians, and deejays coming together–as we have during much of the pandemic–to elevate your spirits while you socialize from home.
This month, our featured artists celebrate Mothers’ Day, International Workers’ Day, and Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, so invite those mamas out there to Zoom in!
JOLLENE LEVID (AF3IRM), Opening Remarks
AUDREY CHAN, Visual Art
IRIS DE ANDA, Poetry
SESSHU FOSTER & ARTURO ROMO, Fiction
PATTY CACHAPERO, Solo Performance
NANCY SANCHEZ, Live Musical Performance
GLENN RED & REYES, Resident Deejays
Plus, be sure to move that furniture and stick around for the dance party!
As always, it’s a FREE event…just visit our Facebook event page to grab the Zoom meeting link. Virtual ‘doors’ open at 8pm; full program beins at 8:30pm. See you on Saturday night in your salas!
Shouts and big THANK YOUs to everyone who tuned in and joined last weekend’s SALA event on Zoom! Our featured visual, literary, and musical artists were all fantastic once again! Loads of gratitude to Wendell Wiggins, Katia Moraes, Noel Alumit, Norma Liliana Valdez, and Elvia Susana Rubalcava for lending their talents to our audience for the evening.
Extra special thanks to everyone who stuck around to dance to the deejays sets by DJ Reyes and yours truly. I had some people asking about songs from my set, so here they are in order below. Happy hunting and we’ll see you all again on Saturday March 13th!
