saturday june 16 | extra ancestral

I’m super excited to have been asked to play records at this second coming of the EXTRA ANCESTRAL show, hosted by LA’s young percussion master, Kahlil Cummings and his CAPOFRESH brand. The evening features Kahlil’s new CAPOFRESH ENSEMBLE project, a ‘supergroup’ made up of some of his favorite local players, as well as BLOCO OBINI, the all-female bloco afro he both leads and instructs. As an extra treat, all the way from Australia, Mr. Quetzal Guerrero aka QVLN, joins the festivities as the evening’s special guest performer! Dance performances by Daunte Fyall, Jahanna Blunt, Rachel Hernandez and Rosangela Silvestre round out the evening but who knows, there are probably more surprises in store!

Check the Facebook Event Page for all the info, and see Farah Sosa’s photographs from the very first show back in February. This night will be just as amazing!

Hey Friends!

We’re excited to announce that our little golden pineapple turns the ripe old age of 1 this FRIDAY MAY 11th and you’re invited to the celebration!! In the nightclub biz, we count time just like dog years, so celebrating our first birthday is kind of a big deal!

Just for the occasion, our friends from LA-based The Expedition Radio Show (broadcast internationally on both Dash Radio and Frission Radio UK), bringing their swag and their forward thinking soul sounds to our main dance floor and to the Coco Lounge! Join as we welcome:

Derrick Ah Sam (emcee duties)

They’ve been great supporters of La Junta events and we’re big fans of their show and the madness they bring whenever they’re in the building. So tell some friends and come through El Dorado DTLA and get a photo with the tropical fruit of honor 😉
