friday october 25 | salsa on the alley

Dia de los Muertos season is just about upon us, so La Junta crew and me are excited to share that we’re back with one of our surprise hit events of last fall, and it’s right in our Pasadena stomping grounds!

Kicking off its Day of the Dead Celebration, Old Pasadena hosts ‘Salsa on the Alley, curated by LA cultural event producers La Junta and featuring a live performance with Son Mayor, an 11-piece ensemble that has been performing its classic salsa sound for more than three decades. The event takes place outdoor in one of Old Pasadena’s historic, urban alleyways–illuminated with unique calaveras lighting.
Free sugar-skull face painting is offered between 5:30-8:30pm!

friday november 9 | piña

PIÑA returns to Downtown Los Angeles on the second Friday of November with two special guests gracing the decks! First, in the main room, the main man from LA’s wildly popular tropical bass collective, Late Night Laggers…CHABOI!! Then, in the Coco Lounge, long-time house music connoisseur, BRAD KENT of Melt LA!

And just to keep things fresh but consistent, I’ve also given the flyer a slightly new look with a new background. I’m hoping this also sparks some cool new design ideas as the event continues to morph with the fast-moving musical landscape in LA.

See you on November 9th!
