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!!!
Coming up this Saturday June 16th from 2pm-7pm, I’m getting together behind the decks with my old buddy RICK WREN for an afternoon of sun-drenched tuneage in Silverlake/East Hollywood. We’ll be on the patio at MELODY ON VIRGIL, a French inspired bistro/wine bar owned by Eric ‘Wizdum’ Tucker, our longtime friend and fellow deejay from the LA underground music community. You may remember him as ‘Wiseacre’, his moniker while hosting the fantastic club and after hours events ‘Funky In The Middle’ and ‘TheLIFT’ (with Jeremy Sole, KCRW). Well, his new restaurant, offering a tasty French-inspired menu along with a highly touted wine list, has been the buzzworthy biz since it opened in late 2017. Stop by this Saturday and let the sun, the tunes and the food hit all the right spots!
PIÑA returns tonight, Friday June 8th 2018 to El Dorado DTLA! MUCH LOVE to everyone who came out for our 1 Year Anniversary party in May…it was quite the soiree, with so many familiar faces, new friends and future family. GRATITUDE and RESPECT to the crew from EXPEDITION RADIO–Derrick Ah Sam, Baby Bubba, Plann B. and Mr. Garfield Adams from providing their beautiful, soulful take on music from all over the globe.
TONIGHT, we welcome in the main room, our great friend NuTropic LA and FEx Chicago, DJ NEWLIFE!! In the Coco Lounge, another of our extended deejay family members, DJ REYES Rodriguez from beloved Echo Park venue, Trópico de Nopal. With both these guys on hand, the tropical love will be flowing from all corners of bar and dance floor!
El Dorado DTLA
416 S. Spring St (between 4th & 5th)
