Happy April, Everyone!
Guess what?! Yep, you got it. It’s already that time of year–time to announce and promote our first LA JUNTA summer event! We thought about announcing the show yesterday, but being that it was Easter Sunday, April Fools’ Day AND rent day, we waited until the second day of the month 😉
But no foolin’…our summer rooftop series begins this month on SUNDAY APRIL 29, just enough time for everyone to make plans with your crews, to reserve cabanas and to start working on your summer swagger. This first one is a family affair with the first band we ever booked for an event, LA’s torchbearers of funky, psychedelic cumbia, La Chamba!! The band is fresh off rocking dates for the west coast’s Chicha Summit, as well as putting the final touches on a new album of original material, so the band is tight as ever.
They’ll be joined by our friends, another fantastic southland Afro-Latin band making a lot of noise via a recently released 7″ single on renowned Brooklyn label Names You Can Trust. Get ready to check out El Santo Golpe!
As always, our resident good guys– Yuki , David Cardena-degruvme & Glenn Red –will be mixin’ the summertime feel good rhythms on the decks, so let’s kick off another amazing summer up on the roof. See you soon at Don Chente!
