This Friday, June 24th 2016, Trojan Lounge presents the 5th Annual Reggae Girls night, featuring all women DJs (including me!). This event is located at Fais Do Do, 5257 W. Adams Blvd. in Los Angeles. Doors at 9:30, 18+, $8 entry before 11 and $10 after. Trojan Lounge happens the last Friday of every month.
Sunday, June 19th was my first time guest DJing at the recently revived Ram Jam L.A. I joined Viktor, Elizabeth MixItUp, and Mr. E.N. behind the decks for a night of Jamaican music – from R&B/shuffle to roots – at a mid-century style bar in Highland Park. A fun and mellow night of good tunes and friendly faces. Resident selector DJ Lawless will return to next month’s installment on Sunday, July 17th. Ram Jam L.A. is every third Sunday from 8p.m. to 2a.m. at The Offbeat Bar, 6316 York Blvd. 90042. Free entry, 21+. Happy hour prices from 8p.m. to 9p.m.
I write this post with a heavy heart…the last Rocksteady Lounge will be this month on Sunday, December 27th. Not just the last of 2015, but the last for the foreseeable future. Terry Lee and Rocksteady Chris started RSL over 8 years ago. Viktor and I took over as resident DJs a couple years in, and Mr. EN has been carrying the torch for the lat couple years. Don’t miss the last dance. The end of an era.
