La Pelanga is La Pelanga and La Peña 2nd Generation are super excited to host straight from Los Angeles,CHICANO BATMAN. Saturday, March 1 come celebrate the release of their 2nd album, Cycles of Existential Rhyme, on El Relleno Records live from the NEW La Peña Lounge in Berkeley, California. (LPs and CDs available at the show.)
Our favorite superheros have produced another one of a kind record filled with killer psychedelic latin soul to save the day. Check out Wednesday Morning and She Lives On My Block to see just what we’re talking about and why we are so excited to welcome them back to the Bay.
This show sold out last time so be sure to get your tickets early!
Arjuna and Jacobo host the 3rd episode of Pelanga en La Sala with special guest Adam Dunbar from Discos Alma. (note: episode #2 tragically perished with a faulty hard drive) Join the three as they explore the vibrant and often overlooked music of Panama with a few other Caribbean gems mixed in.
The past 2 months, (December and January), have been filled with family, feasts, and re-centering ourselves for the new year.
And for this new year, we here at La Pelanga are all very excited as we plan to stay busy with new live events, new podcasts, new mixes, new pelanga onesies for the babies and of course lots of new music here on the blog.
Where to start though?
I propose we all set our volume control to 11 and ROCK THE FUCK OUT with Les Difficiles from Haiti.
