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.

LA JUNTA, my deejay crew and music event of the same name, have announced the dates for our Summer 2017 run. We’ve been working hard to curate an amazing lineup of deejays, live bands and dance groups for our fifth summer season–and our second in DTLA. Yup…we’ll be back rockin’ the super fresh rooftop lounge at Don Chente Bar-Grill & Lounge, across from Staples Center. Above is our teaser flier showing the dates of our series, each show taking place on the LAST Sunday of each month from April through September. For this summer campaign, the La Junta team and I decided on a vintage futbol/soccer aesthetic. Soon you’ll see the flier announcing the lineup for our April 30th Kickoff Event. Can’t wait to show you, and of course, to see you at La Junta!!

Our final LA JUNTA summer event of 2016 falls on SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 25TH!! And we’re going out BIG with Los Angeles’ new but already beloved Selena tribute band, SELENAMOS! It takes place on the rooftop of our new home, DON CHENTE BAR-GRILL & LOUNGE in DTLA, right across from Staples Center. We’ll be celebrating the 25th anniversary of Selena’s first gold record, which was also the first for any woman in Tejano music!
