sunday june 27 | la junta

Hi, Friends!

As you’ve heard by now…LA is back, music is back, and so is La Junta–and we’re out hear doubling up on our moves!

Along with moving our monthly Friday night event, PIÑA, to a historic DTLA venue, we’re also taking our signature Sunday tardeadas to a place with a little bit of history and nostalgia for us and our longtime followers:

On Sunday June 27th, we’re returning to the second floor patio bar in Alhambra, (formerly Fronteras Grill) now known as LA CHUPERIA CANTINA!!

La Junta events tripled in size during our June 2014 to June 2016 tenure at this location. This spot was perfect for our ‘little party that could’ and we hadn’t intended to leave there when we did. It’s just that the party gods had bigger things in store for us!

Now that we’ve made it through 15 months of COVID-19 social restrictions, returning to a place where we feel we have roots makes sense and feels really good. We love the idea of enjoying ‘music, friends, and sunshine’ together in a familiar place, after everything we’ve endured. PLUS, for those weary about attending indoor events, this can be your jam since the patio is open-air on three sides.

The day is coming up quickly, so mark the date, make some plans, schedule those babysitters and let’s get back to doing summer right!!

DETAILS

Where: La Chuperia Cantina || 118 W. Main St. Alhambra, CA 91801
21+ || $5 at the door || 4pm-9pm

Happy Holidays, Everyone!

It’s crazy to think that we’re just about at the end of the year! We’re pretty sure that for most of us it’s been a wild ride and often we’re just barely hangin’ on…but we’re here and now is the time to celebrate! So it’s a good thing that PIÑA is back celebrating New Year’s Eve at El Dorado DTLA for our third straight year, presenting:
