This weeks show was a big push to remind listeners of one of Los Angeles’ best FREE events in DTLA, Night On Broadway. Organized by Councilmember Jose Huizar of the 14th District and the Taking Back Broadway Organization. So what better way than to present a couple of the bands playing the event, Eduardo Arenas (bassist of Chicano Batman) who has his solo release Nariz, along with Bryan Ponce  (The Altons). Council Member Jose Huizar also called in and shared more information about the event and the revitalization of the Broadway Corridor.

Always driving to L.A. for a bit of cultura, it was a surprise to me when I read in the OC section of the LA Times about Relampago del Cielo‘s 40 Year Anniversary Celebration happening this coming weekend on the UCI campus at the Irvine Barclay Theatre. A quick search online and thankfully I was able to pre-record an interview in which Marlene  Peña-Marin shared much of the history of the group and information about the event. You can listen to the interview below and see the flyer here.

The last few weekends of summer events seem to be extra packed with something great for everybody. One of those events is Echo Park Rising. Jorge of Qvole Collective called in to give us the 4-1-1 on their event within EPR which will be held at the Lost Knight on Sunday, August 21st.
