With the March event having been our most well-attended show thus far, SALA returns on Saturday April 10th with another marvelous lineup of literary, visual and musical artists!
It’s a heavyweight roster, including Favianna Rodriguez (art), Lorna Dee Cervantes and Richard Montoya with his father José Montoya–representing both the future and brilliant past of LA Chicanx poetry, respectively.
Additionally, since Earth Day falls in April, we’ve invited young climate activist Riddhi Patel (Sunrise Kern) to speak on the topic of climate change and environmental responsibility.
Musician Ángel Garcia, aka Mezklah, rounds out the roster of live performances with a short set featuring his signature ‘SpiderMonkey Beats’. All this jumps off before the always highly anticipated dance party with deejays Reyes and yours truly, Glenn Red, gets lit!
The Zoom virtual ‘doors’ open at 8pm with the full program beginning at 8:30pm. As always, it’s a FREE EVENT!
So the calendar may say that it’s autumn, but the warm sunshine keeps saying otherwise, right? That’s what we love about our city and why we’re so excited to share the details about our next outdoor shindig. With three amazing events at our beloved Don Chente DTLA and a scary midseason move to do three more fantastic shows at the beautiful Hotel Indigo this summer, we’re ready for one last family gathering–a feet-on-the-ground, backyard boogie style getdown at one of the coolest hidden gems of a venue in all of the city!

Los Angeles photographer/visual ethnographer Farah Sosa worked her magic once again at last Saturday’s RITO collaboration between my two tribes, Ecléctica and La Junta. Trópico de Nopal loves Farah’s lens and vice versa. Check out this photo of WEST AFRICAN ORISA DANCE GROUP among all the richly colorful set by clicking on the image. THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN, FARAH!!
