Olá, Everyone!

Though we probably need a few more days to recover from the amazing madness of this past weekend’s La Junta special event featuring Novalima and Chacombo, we wanted to remind you that we’ll be returning to our regularly scheduled programming on SUNDAY AUGUST 26!!

For this second to last getdown of the summer, we’ll be featuring one of São Paulo’s longtime favorite deejay/producers flying into LA for his first ever visit, plus two well-loved local bands who’ll float seamlessly across northeast Brazil’s beautiful but lesser known forró music, to the funky and soulful samba styles made popular by celebrated artists such as Jorge Ben and Tim Maia:

DJ TAHIRA
BANDA MÔFORRÓ
OS ZAGUEIROS
+ dance lesson/exhibition by Fabio & Andrea of FORRÓ in LA

4-10pm | 21+ | $5 Presale; $10 Door

Hotel Indigo DTLA
4th Floor Pool Deck
899 Francisco St (at 9th St.)

Happy Summer, Familia!

We at La Junta are still riding the good vibes from the last tardeada on Memorial Day weekend, but it’s already time to share the lineup for our next show here on the interwebs! Joining us on SUNDAY JUNE 24…

all the way from Australia:
QVLN (aka Quetzal Guerrero) + special guests, live
and undoubtedly one of LA’s finest deejays/tastemakers
JEREMY SOLE (KCRW, Afro Funké, TheLIFT), deejay set

Woohoo!!! While we’re incredibly excited about our scheduled performers, if you remember our big announcement at the May event, you know that our June show will be simultaneous amazing and bittersweet, as it will be our last at DON CHENTE DTLA, who’ll be closing their doors in mid-July with the sale of the property on which it stands. Yep, that’s right…our final gathering on this particular rooftop (boohoo). Have no fear, though…we’re not going far. We’ll share our new DTLA rooftop location in the coming weeks 😉 For now, gather everyone you know and let’s close the place down right and go out BIG!!!

juntamos.

Cheers! to everyone who came out to last Sunday’s LA JUNTA 2018 SUMMER KICKOFF!! In case you’ve never been, check out the incredibly beautiful pictures by Eric Parsons Photo on La Junta’s website:
