sunday june 27 | la junta

Hi, Friends!

As you’ve heard by now…LA is back, music is back, and so is La Junta–and we’re out hear doubling up on our moves!

Along with moving our monthly Friday night event, PIÑA, to a historic DTLA venue, we’re also taking our signature Sunday tardeadas to a place with a little bit of history and nostalgia for us and our longtime followers:

On Sunday June 27th, we’re returning to the second floor patio bar in Alhambra, (formerly Fronteras Grill) now known as LA CHUPERIA CANTINA!!

La Junta events tripled in size during our June 2014 to June 2016 tenure at this location. This spot was perfect for our ‘little party that could’ and we hadn’t intended to leave there when we did. It’s just that the party gods had bigger things in store for us!

Now that we’ve made it through 15 months of COVID-19 social restrictions, returning to a place where we feel we have roots makes sense and feels really good. We love the idea of enjoying ‘music, friends, and sunshine’ together in a familiar place, after everything we’ve endured. PLUS, for those weary about attending indoor events, this can be your jam since the patio is open-air on three sides.

The day is coming up quickly, so mark the date, make some plans, schedule those babysitters and let’s get back to doing summer right!!

DETAILS

Where: La Chuperia Cantina || 118 W. Main St. Alhambra, CA 91801
21+ || $5 at the door || 4pm-9pm

friday february 14 | pajama jam

For those of us here in LA, it’s thus far been a solemn and heartbreaking start to 2020 with the sudden losses of people who have meant so much to our city and to our individual circles of friends and family. Fortunately, we’re at the start of a new month, and with it, the hope of abundance and good tidings that may help us put our hearts back together.

Well, it turns out that our next PIÑA event falls on Friday February 14th (Valentine’s Day!) and we’re determined to make it fun and unique. Sooo, we’re inviting you to dress down…waaayyy down…and join us for the PIÑA PAJAMA JAM!! Yup. Come dance the night away in your favorite sleepwear to the sounds of La Junta resident deejays degruvme, Yukicito & Glenn Red and our special guest from world renowned online music program Expedition RadioBIG BAD BABY BUBBA!

NOTE: The emphasis is on sleep’wear’. You gotta have pj’s on (or regular clothes for those coming from V-Day dinner)…or something comparable (sorry to the freeballers who like to sleep in the buff!). And footwear…because every now and then a glass breaks.

See you on 2/14 with lots of love!
