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.
Friday February 9, 2018
416 S. Spring St. (between 4th & 5th)
Downtown Los Angeles
Here are two pieces of work–the fliers, not the artists!–out of six images that I finished this week. Pictured: Carlos Santa and Gal Costa, respectively.
Even though we announced that LA JUNTA will be celebrating the 2018 New Year’s Eve by hosting our PIÑA event on Sunday December 31st, the upcoming second Friday of the month falls during this week on DECEMBER 8, meaning it’s our regular PIÑA party! Above is he flier that I created for it last night. When I sent it out to them this morning, the team immediately alerted me that I had made a couple of mistakes on the date. AND I realized that I hadn’t added the signature pineapple in the background. Anyway I love how it turned out! The pink, chocolate, black and bamboo green tones look great together.
Pictured on the flier is the Vietnamese pop group “3 Trái Táo” (The Apples 3, circa 1975).
If you’re anywhere near DTLA this Friday night, definitely stop by El Dorado DTLA! 9pm / Free.

Not only will we be rockin’ the main room dance floor with our signature Afro-Latin tropical fire, but yours truly and a good friend TBA will be coolin’ out in the back room called The Stowaway with some deep and heavy jazz, hip-hop, and eclectic soul sounds.
