It’s been a crazy and heartbreaking start to 2020 for many of us thus far, but fortunately the weekend brings a fresh new month, and it falls on a Saturday! That means, it’s time to BUMP with La Junta crew at the coolest neighborhood bar in Boyle Heights–XELAS! More than ever, get out into the community and meet your friends, loved ones and strangers that may become ‘family’. Let’s get together and heal…La Junta Sound System will provide the soundtrack!

It’s only a day away and I still can’t wait to open this Thursday’s ‘Live from The Mayfair’ show for the amazing Ethio Cali and the young and talented K.Roosevelt with his forward thinking brand of soul music. Come out for a soulful, cozy live music experience that just might eventually turn into a bangin’ dance party!

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:
