sunday june 24 | la junta solstice spectacular

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!!!

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.
