friday february 14 | pajama jam

For those of us here in LA, it’s thus far been a solemn and heartbreaking start to 2020 with the sudden losses of people who have meant so much to our city and to our individual circles of friends and family. Fortunately, we’re at the start of a new month, and with it, the hope of abundance and good tidings that may help us put our hearts back together.

Well, it turns out that our next PIÑA event falls on Friday February 14th (Valentine’s Day!) and we’re determined to make it fun and unique. Sooo, we’re inviting you to dress down…waaayyy down…and join us for the PIÑA PAJAMA JAM!! Yup. Come dance the night away in your favorite sleepwear to the sounds of La Junta resident deejays degruvme, Yukicito & Glenn Red and our special guest from world renowned online music program Expedition RadioBIG BAD BABY BUBBA!

NOTE: The emphasis is on sleep’wear’. You gotta have pj’s on (or regular clothes for those coming from V-Day dinner)…or something comparable (sorry to the freeballers who like to sleep in the buff!). And footwear…because every now and then a glass breaks.

See you on 2/14 with lots of love!

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!

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:

Happy Holidaze, All ~

As the end of the year and end of the decade approaches, I’m doing my best to be out there with you celebrating it all. I’ve posted about my gigs on Xmas night and on New Year’s Eve, but here’s one more, right smack in between both holidays and in the middle of the last full holiday week! It’s a 4th Saturday, which means I’m back in Long Beach rockin’ alongside the homie Eusébio Akasa at the at the fun and lively second floor cantina called Mezcalero LBC. Bring your presence 😉
