sunday september 15 | café tacvba

La Junta are excited and extremely honored to serve as the music providers at the pre-concert picnic festivities at the Hollywood Bowl (!!!) in celebration of CAFÉ TACVBA‘s 30-year Anniversary Show! Enjoy a pop-up party with I Love Micheladas; art and fashion vendors curated by Molcajete Dominguero; and music by La Junta LA! Early arrival is greatly encouraged.

About This Performance
It’s impossible to limit what Mexico City’s Café Tacvba do to just one genre. The innovative quartet emerged from the rock en español scene of the ’90s to explore indie rock, electronic music, musique concrète, cumbia, norteña, and more. It all amounts to a thoroughly modern portrait of Mexican music – and an adventurous and viscerally exciting live concert experience that’s made them a sell-out favorite around the world.
Led by Clementine Creevy, LA natives Cherry Glazerr open the evening with a daring set that reflects the emotional growth and vulnerability of this three-piece rock band.

Programs, artists, dates, prices and availability subject to change.

Much love to everyone who came out to the Mayfair Hotel LA on Fat Tuesday!! Thank you for braving the rain and lightning storms…but I think you’ll agree that the thunder was definitely inside the building that night 🙂

I was thrilled over the opportunity to play a lot of music that I love throughout the night. Several people came up to the deejay booth and asked about certain songs that I played during my sets that evening–which I love–so I’m posting them down below. Happy Hunting!

FUNKY CARAMELO (Cumbiatón, LA)

La Junta crew will be in Tucson, AZ on this night, scheduled for our own friendly takeover of the awesome El Tambó event, so we’ll be with you in spirit, sharing the music we love on the road. We’re leaving you in highly capable hands, so come out to El Dorado DTLA and dance your pineapples off like you do! We’ll see you again on NYE 😉
