Happy Summer, Familia!
We at La Junta are still riding the good vibes from the last tardeada on Memorial Day weekend, but it’s already time to share the lineup for our next show here on the interwebs! Joining us on SUNDAY JUNE 24…
all the way from Australia:
QVLN (aka Quetzal Guerrero) + special guests, live
and undoubtedly one of LA’s finest deejays/tastemakers
JEREMY SOLE (KCRW, Afro Funké, TheLIFT), deejay set
Woohoo!!! While we’re incredibly excited about our scheduled performers, if you remember our big announcement at the May event, you know that our June show will be simultaneous amazing and bittersweet, as it will be our last at DON CHENTE DTLA, who’ll be closing their doors in mid-July with the sale of the property on which it stands. Yep, that’s right…our final gathering on this particular rooftop (boohoo). Have no fear, though…we’re not going far. We’ll share our new DTLA rooftop location in the coming weeks 😉 For now, gather everyone you know and let’s close the place down right and go out BIG!!!
I’m back in Chinatown Los Angeles this week, mixin’ moody, vibey lounge and dancin’ sounds at my monthly gathering called LATITUDE. Come thru for a great Friday night hang. It all goes down at GENERAL LEE’S COCKTAIL HOUSE in the Chinatown Central Plaza. 10PM | FREE.

Heyyyy! It’s a PIÑA week!! Big thanks to everyone who came through last month for YUKICITO’s amazing birthday celebration. We’re back at EL DORATO DTLA this coming Friday April 13th, laying down the voodoo extra heavy on the dance floor for the occasion. Come on down under the ground and let’s see if we can make some magic once again!
FRIDAY MARCH 16th I’m back in my regular 3rd Friday slot at General Lee’s Cocktail House in LA’s Chinatown District with LATITUDE. I’ve enjoyed a lot of freedom to move around musically here and LA’s young Friday night crowds have been sticking around for the most part. Last time, I started the night by dropping the needle on Ahmad Jamal’s jazz piano classic “Poinciana”, made the trek through some UK modal jazz by way of Matthew Halsall, got into some iconic bebop material from Monk and Coltrane and on to jazzy, thoughtful hip-hop, soulful reggae and afro sounds. I also tend to touch on some disco, house and moody electronica from all over, and will occasionally throw the young weekend warriors a bone with some familiar tropical pop.
Anyway, grab some homies, come check it out and have a sip with me soon!
10PM-2AM (I usually start at 9:30)
