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!
Gather your dance floor fam, make a plan and we’ll see you on the 18th!

These hot days remind us that summer is here! And we can still come together in new ways to connect while doing good.
That is why we have partnered with La Junta Sound System to ‘Move the Movement’! A benefit party benefiting immigrant rights. Get your people and log on to Facebook on July 25 from 4-6pm for a virtual dance party featuring your favorite Cumbias, Salsa, Afro-Latin, and Global Rhythms. All proceeds from this event will benefit CHIRLA.
We know the richness our cultures bring to this country. Yet sadly, millions of immigrants who are deemed essential, work and risk their lives daily to care for this nation without being equally included or protected. La Junta wants to help us change that. And you can too!
The dance party is free so invite your whole tribe – all funds raised that day will
benefit our direct services and advocacy work.
Here’s how to Move the Movement:
RSVP at OnSameSide and receive a CHIRLA toolkit with resources
Share with your friends on social media!
Tune in to CHIRLA’s Facebook on July 25th
So get your moves together, figure out what you are wearing, and tell all your friends
to join you at this can’t-miss summer jam!
