Latinas Out Loud: ¡Pa’rriba!
Friday Sept. 22, 2017 at 7:30PM – FREE EVENT
¡Pa’rriba! (Get Up!) is a night of futurism, resistance, and alternative music. Latinx art pop pioneer Lido Pimienta mixes beat-driven synth-pop with bold brass, strings, and analog drums, all influenced by her Afro-Colombian roots and her time living in London and Toronto. L.A.-based Sister Mantos brings a psychedelic blend of Latin beats, funky rhythms, spacey synths, and queer brown attitude. Chulita Vinyl Club, a DJ collective for womxn of color, spin from their rare vinyl collections throughout.
Event parking is available at 11020 Kinross Ave (UCLA Parking Lot 36) with a flat rate of $5
