friday july 9 | piña

It’s time for another summer night full of music, friends, dancing and tasty cocktails as La Junta presents PIÑA at La Cita Bar in DTLA!! We’re super excited to bring back the tropical, Latin Caribbean sounds of the Inland Empire’s QUITAPENAS!

As always, the evening features our La Junta Sound System deejays–yours truly Glenn Red, Yukicito & degruvme–providing plenty of Afro-Latin and global dance rhythms to keep you bouncing and swinging around the dance floor, while our host Miz Honey P makes sure you’re smiling for the camera.

It’s also the perfect place to come party after the show at Grand Performances. Round up your dancin’ crew and join us this Friday July 9th…we can’t wait to see to see you!

Hola, familia!  La Junta crew here, writing this to you with so much excitement!!  We’ve all been waiting with unwavering hope, and now our City of Angels is ever so close to a full reopening after fifteen months of the COVID lockdown…so we have an announcement:

IT’S TIME TO MOVE!!  This has a double meaning for us.  1) We can’t wait to see you and get down on the dance floor with you all, and 2) PIÑA has a new home at La Cita Bar!!

You read that right.  PIÑA moves to DTLA’s most renowned and beloved neighborhood bar, La Cita, on Friday, June 18th!  The evening features La Junta Sound System (deejays degruvme, Yukicito & Glenn Red) playing Cumbia, Salsa, Reggaeton, Samba, and other Afro-Latin rhythms, plus a live performance by the always fun and frenetic LA rockeros, Spaghetti Cumbia!

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!
