LA JUNTA’s monthly late night session PIÑA returns to EL DORADO DTLA this Friday, February 9th with all that good Afro-Latin tropical goodness on the turntables. And, just as we did on New Year’s Eve, we’ll also have the underground bar open, which on our nights will be known as the ‘CoCo Lounge’–yacht rock, vintage island exotica, calypso, classic mambo, bossa nova, West African highlife, swingin’ Ethio-jazz, ska, rocksteady and other sounds by which to cool out, featuring DJ KIND C and LA JUNTA SOUND SYSTEM.

Just posting up some images that I did spotlighting the La Junta crew for a recent promo campaign for our summer event series. Here we are. This is us.
This Thursday DECEMBER 10th, LA JUNTA is co-hosting an Winter Dance Party at DTLA’s LA CITA BAR, featuring superb live music by tropical surfrockers SALT PETAL, dark melodians BLACKWATER JUKEBOX, and one of LA’s newest and most exciting Latin pop ensembles SIN COLOR! Not that you’d ever need an excuse to hang out at LA CITA, but this event will be as good as any. Hope you’ll grab the dancin’ crew and join us. See ya there!!
P.S. This isn’t one of my fliers 😉
While I expressed my Thank You’s on Facebook a few days after the final La Junta event of the summer, I’ve gotten so busy with projects that I’m just now getting back to the ol’ weblog to share some stuff and express the love. THANK YOU to those of you who attended any of our LA JUNTA events this summer! It was a fantastic third season full of growth, the forging of new friendships, and the strengthening of familiar ties. Our team was blessed to have a grateful, open-eared, open-hearted eventgoers all summer, as well as an array of fantastic talent gracing the turntables, microphones and speakers. We can’t wait to do it again next summer, but be on the lookout for a couple of one-off events until then 😉
This was the final flier of the season. MUCH LOVE and RESPECT to GINGEE and VALENTÍN, and all of our guests for making the La Junta 2015 Summer Finale one to hold on to!
