Sneaks, Necrot, Los Angeles District Soul Club, Juke Joint w/Jackie Jackson
|We can picture it already. You curled up on the couch, crying into a box of chocolates, asking why, WHY? Why did summer have to go? But when your heartbreak hits, don’t forget you’ve got a friend. Our outdoor oasis is a year round sanctuary where craft cocktails flow regardless of season. Summer may be ending soon, but you might as well go big with us.
After months of anticipation, DC cool girl Sneaks is taking over tonight. Get to know one of our favorite Merge Records artists as she continues to turn the District’s DIY punk scene on its head. She also toured with Spoon earlier this year. Curious yet?
We’re hosting 2x the fun tomorrow with Necrot taking over our indoor stage, presented by Born for Burning. Outside in the garden bring your dancing shoes and join Los Angeles District Soul Club for a 100% soul music party with vinyl spinning all night, totally free. Think of it as the perfect way to get your toes wet before our favorite, free Friday night shindig Juke Joint with Miss Jackie Jackson. You’ve undoubtedly heard about this legendary woman and her effervescent spirit that lights up our stage each time she graces it! Come boogie and get down with our very own Soul Queen.
We continue to do the most this weekend with a 26th birthday party for Keith Powers on Saturday afternoon and you’re invited! Yes, we do mean the hunky TV star here IRL celebrating his birthday with y’all. This fiesta is free but will fill up quickly, so make sure to RSVP here and cruise by when doors open at 3 for some free surprises. When Keith’s rager ends at 9, the festive vibes will continue at your favorite Indian beats dance party, Non Stop Bhangra! Truly the most lively and upbeat dance floor of any Resident party, you won’t want to miss it. Closing out this epic weekend we’ve actually got two Sunday shows for you this time with Graf Orlock at 6 pm followed by Varathron at 11. See you there!
For those of you dreading Monday, we know how to help! Come fall in love with Girl Ultra, making serious waves for, “breathing new life into Mexico’s R&B scene.” With a brand new video out last week, you won’t want to miss what Girl Ultra is throwing down.
As the sun sets on August — RIP summer 2018 — we’re making sure the month is teaming with shows and parties to ensure we wrap this season up right. We just announced a daytime party by the name of Issa Leo on Sunday 8/26 featuring the best local latin artists around, plus everybody’s favorite Jeff Weiss hip hop production, Don’t Come to LA, on Thursday 8/30. Two wild parties to check off on that August bucket list.
Lastly, we added a show with Faye Webster and Christian Lee Hutson on Wednesday 8/29. A year later we remain obsessed with Faye’s song and video for “She Won’t Go Away,” featuring lowriders, hot pink lighting, and a moody snake. Peep the vid, bump the track, and read up on this young, rising star.
With all that on the schedule, you’re sure to stop by every night, right? We’ll leave the light on and turn the tunes up for your arrival.
