LA JUNTA--'the gathering' or 'the assembly' in Spanish--is a bi-weekly summer event bringing together people of all backgrounds in the name of friendship, dancing, and deep music from points around the globe.  Based in the community of east Pasadena in LA's San Gabriel Valley, eventgoers are treated to sun-kissed afternoons in an outdoor patio setting, as music, food, libations, smiles, and dance moves flow joyfully into dusk.

Lovers of seminal U.K. 80's band THE SMITHS and the subsequent solo work of their brooding but charismatic frontman MORRISSEY will be delighted to know their music has continued to live on in the hearts of East Los Angeles.  Via events such as Eastside Luv Bar's MORRISSEY-Oke karaoke nights, fans still revel in this music that meant so much to an entire era of youth.  The next level of tribute, however, is being ushered in by the new outfit from calling themselves MARIACHI MANCHESTER, a full-fledged traditional mariachi ensemble covering many of our favorite Smiths and Moz hits.

The LA JUNTA SOUND SYSTEM has the honor of supporting one of Mariachi Manchester's first live performances on Thursday March 26th.  We're EXTRA excited for this one!
