Free Tomorrow in DTLA: Funk DJ Collective Celebrates 10th Anniversary With Free Outdoor Concert at Grand Performances

2:17 PM PDT on September 3, 2021

    [dropcap size=big]A[/dropcap]s we Angelinos find ourselves in the last dog days of summer and looking to celebrate that last little bit of extended daylight for just a bit longer, remember our friends at Grand Performances still have you covered. 

    The free outdoor concert series celebrating its 35th year at the newly renovated California Plaza has hosted Talib Kweli as part of their Dilla Fest celebration. Additionally, Marques Wyatt graced the outdoor stage to celebrate the 21st anniversary of his world-famous house club night DEEP up to this past week by hosting the Hello Stranger showcase featuring Chola Orange, Brain Story, and Shiro Schwarz. 

    All have come to rock the house underneath the stars above the DTLA skyline. 

    Tomorrow, Saturday, September 4th, they will host legendary Los Angeles global bass collective Subsuelo, celebrating their 10-Year-Anniversary. 

    This free, all-ages outdoor event will take place from 2 pm to 10 pm.  To celebrate the occasion, the global bass collective is bringing along a few of their friends. Joining them that night is murders row of músicos such as Los Rakas, Uproot Andy, Reyna Tropical, Zuzuka Poderosa, Cumbiatón, and Late Night Laggers.

    Subsuelo started as a house party in Boyle Heights in 2011 and eventually evolved into a monthly performance at Eastside Luv where friends get down to cumbia, hip-hop, salsa, house, reggaeton, dancehall, baile funk, kuduro, and all kinds of new weird global bass variations. Along with the DJs, Subsuelo also features a live flamenco band that performs traditional cante jondo and experiments with genre-bending fusions and collaborations. 

    The current crew line-up of Subseulo consists of El Canyonazo, DJ Gozar, Farah Sosa, La Tigresa, DJ Ethos, DJ Gazoo, Juxli, Gerardo Morales, Gabriel Osuna, and Captain Planet. Subsuelo also hosts a weekly radio show on KROQ every Sunday at 10 pm called Alternalido, which has recently featured interviews with  Grammy and Latin Grammy winners: Rodrigo y Gabriela, Zoe, Cabra and iLe (Calle 13), Bomba Estereo, Gustavo Santaolalla, Natalia Lafourcade, Eric Bobo (Cypress Hill), Cultura Profetica, Adrian Quesada (Black Pumas), plus rising start like The Marias, C. Tangana, Jenn Morel, Gabriel Garzon-Montano, Bardo (Chicano Batman)

    It doesn’t stop there. GP will have you covered for the remainder of September with upcoming events such as Boogaloo Assasins (September 9th), Buyepongo Vs. Quitapenas (September 18th), Madame Gandhi (September 24th), and The Do-Over 15th Anniversary (September 25th).
