Silver Lake got a taste of East LA last Wednesday night at Los Globos with an incredible performance by alt-Latin rockers Las Cafteras. Influenced by the traditional Son Jarocho sound, the seven-piece band kicked off their “Road to SXSW” Tour by delivering inspiring lyrics of justice in the City of Angels. The crowd could not stop moving to the infectious beat of the drums and string instruments. Things got especially raucous when strong politically-guided lyrics sent a surge of energy through the room, and people showed their support with hand-raised shouts.

If you are still looking for a good way to celebrate the upcoming day of the apocalypse, we would like to bring to your attention something the Mayans may have not predicted. The Sacred Bones 5 Year Anniversary Party, happening this Friday at Pappy and Harriets in Pioneertown (yup, it’s in the desert). In case you haven’t heard of Brooklyn-based record label Sacred Bones, they’re the ones responsible for bringing us acts like Zola Jesus, Psychic Ills, Lust of Youth and more, and for one night, they are pulling out all the big guns in their arsenal. For this special event you can enjoy music from the above as well as performances by Pop. 1280, Var, and Lust of Youth. As well, Sacred Bones created a special edition LP, only available at the show.
