I’ve also been super busy these just these past few weeks designing promo images for a few clients with upcoming events in August:

Just sharing a bit of what’s been keepin’ me busy during days the last few months:

irRESISTible.

Several weeks ago, I was honored when my friend Beto González asked me to take over the design campaign for an upcoming show he’d been working on. Below is what I came up with based on his great ideas. Recently, I’ve also been added on to this amazing show happening at the Ford Amphitheatre in Hollywood CA this Friday August 4th. The show begins at 8:30pm, but I’ll be out on the plaza spinning a deejay set of Brazilian music and other tunes from around the world beginning at 6:30pm. It’s another great honor to be part of this night of Resistance music that’s good for the soul, given the seemingly many parallels with America’s political climate and that of Brazil during the mid 1960s thru the mid 1980s. Check out this great article by Ivan Fernandez posted this morning in the LA Weekly:

Brasil 70: Samba/Soul/Resistance at The Ford Theatres

So grab your tickets at www.fordtheatres.org and come out early with a picnic basket and some wine and make a great evening of it. I’d love to see you there. ❤

Just posting up some images that I did spotlighting the La Junta crew for a recent promo campaign for our summer event series. Here we are. This is us.

glenn’s gone vinyl.

Can’t wait to rock a guest set in LA Chinatown on Saturday night with my heavyweight vinyl diggin’ friends from the BARRIO FUNKY crew!! Even more sweet is that the featured live bands, YANGA and EL SANTO GOLPE are also friends with whom I’ve worked on some great shows in recent years. With Chinatown currently showing the sweeping effects of gentrification in LA, a big ¡Salud! to Barrio Funky for keeping it 100% wax with real music and real folks holding down the dance floor each month.

Speaking of wax, I enjoy opportunities like this, to keep it old school and go back to my roots by playing an all-vinyl set. I still buy vinyl weekly, but it just got tedious preselecting, packing and then hauling crates or bags full of records when I began playing multiple nights per week. However, you’ll almost always see at least one bag of wax behind the turntables with me whenever I’m out deejaying. Come through and join us at upstairs at the Grand Star Jazz Club if you feel the need to boogie this weekend!

May the Fifth (of mezcal be with you).

MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU and MAY the 5th be in DTLA with me. Got two spots where we can clink glasses:

First I’ll be here at MEZCALERO DTLA from 7:30 to 10pm


Then heading over to EL DORADO BAR DTLA to join my fam LA JUNTA as we sip and get down into the wee hours.
