ILLEGAL intern Radio #59 – Aug. 17 2016

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.https://podomatic.com/embed/html5/episode/8162935?autoplay=true

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.
