Our third and final stop (except for maybe a rest area) of the La Junta “Tropi-Cal Weekend Tour” is in San Luis Obispo to meet up with our friends Mano Gil and Mermaid of SONIDO TROPICAL. They’re the newest and best Afro-Latin music event in all of SLO and we’re really excited to play this Easter Sunday afternoon event with them. It’s a free, all-ages tropical dance party with music, lunch buffet and mimosa/beer specials all afternoon long. Check out the deets on the Facebook event page:

Be sure to stay off the highways and interstates on the weekend of April 19-21, because La Junta is hittin’ the road!! That’s right, we’re headed north on a zig-zaggy weekend road trip up through Fresno, back down to Ojai and back up and across to San Luis Obispo. Three days, three counties, three cities, three parties and one car, bringing afro-latin, tropical music goodness to some our favorite cities a few hours north of LA. Thanks for our friends from Cumbiatron, ¡Wepa! and Sonido Tropical for the invitations. Here’s the itinerary:
