The 4/20 Weekend Guide: Kush Fest in Adelanto, New Cannabis Workspace, Ice Cream Dispensary Tour ~ GTFO!

11:32 AM PDT on April 18, 2019

I just want a pink sunset, pink nails, good beats, and pizza for my 4/20. This guide is for folks trying to do something a little more this Saturday. Also, no Coachella events here, because who has money for that? Thanks to everyone on Twitter that sent in events this week. It’s April, the sun is shining and it’s warming up, so get out there and have some fun! ... GTFO L.A.!

Alih Jey at the Hi Hat


[dropcap size=big]J[/dropcap]ust like how international star Rosalia is reimagining Flamenco, Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Alih Jey is breathing new life into boleros. Trust me, her new single Mi Debilidad is definitely worth checking out, it’s romantic, it’s authentic and the sound is just rich all around. The Dominican songstress is bringing all of her vocal talent to the Hi Hat on April 18, you don’t want to miss it. If you were bummed about LA Rosalia tickets selling out in like 0.3 seconds, definitely reinvest that energy into this incredible local artist. Get more details here.

When: Thursday, April 18
Where: The Hi Hat, 5042 York Blvd., Highland Park

Flowers Rhythm Take Over Tiburon Thursday at Xelas


[dropcap size=big]D[/dropcap]ancing to some cumbias, reggaeton and salsa is all I want to do on a Thursday night tbh.

Party to beats by the ever-so talented Zuri and DJ Diabla. It’s going to be a night of dembow, cumbia, hip-hop, reggaeton, and perreo, so get out there and have fun, unless you have work the next day -- then maybe not as much fun. Get more details here.

Where: Xelas, 1846 1/2 E. 1st Street, Boyle Heights

Kush Stock Festival


[dropcap size=big]A[/dropcap]delanto is a tiny desert town that’s up the 15 and through the 395 (what up IE peeps) and also currently houses an immigration detention center. Fun fact, I used to live in Adelanto with my grandfather for a bit, he used to build boats over there of all things. Anyways, you can go get blazed in the same stadium where we used to sweat buckets and watch baseball games. The Kush Stock Festival is happening this Saturday. There will licensed cannabis dealers and live performances. Remember Baby Bash? He’s going to perform, and here’s to hoping he’ll belt out “Suga Suga” under that hot IE sun. If you’re hungry, the Vallarta off Mariposa Road has a great kitchen and is abuelo-approved. Get more details here.

When: Saturday, 4/20
Where: Adelanto Stadium and Events Center, Adelanto, CA

Rooftop Yoga at The Fields


Downward facing grog? I guess. If you’re into yoga and day drinking (is this a westside thing?) this is DEFINITELY the vibe for you. Head to the Fields LA for some rooftop yoga at 11 am. Then at 12:15 pm there will be beer and brunch. Nine of the city’s best chefs will be there along with 20 “brilliantly” brewed beers. All yoga experience levels are welcomed, and there will be a discount for larger groups. Get more details here.

The Spot on Main Grand Opening


[dropcap size=big]T[/dropcap]he Spot aims to be a cannabis friendly Amsterdam-style workspace/lounge and is having a grand opening on 4/20. There won’t be any sales, so it’s a BYOW. There will be an exotic cereal bar, gaming systems and a cool “lounging space,” I suppose. Maybe stock up on goodies at the 420 treat tour and bring them here? For business folks looking to use this spot as a workspace, let me know how that goes if you try it! Get more details here.

When: Saturday, 4/20
Where: 560 S. Main Street, DTLA

É Arenas Release Party


Interested in Chicano Batman, Cumbias and a soundtrack to the iconic Tommy’s Burgers? If that’s you, this is your party! The bassist of Chicano Batman, É Arenas, is releasing an energetic 7” called La Fila De Tommy's. The sound is best described as a 150 bpm synthesized electro-funk-cumbia-merengue explosion, 90’s Mexican brass band-style. At the release party, Yanga Music and Fresko Soul will be DJ’ing all night. Get more details here.

When: Saturday, 4/20
Where: Moroccan Lounge, 901 E 1st Street, east Little Tokyo

Espiri.tu at El Cafe by Primera Taza


[dropcap size=big]I[/dropcap] grew up going to flea markets and swap meets on early weekend mornings with my parents. I sort of have a fondness for them. This particular flea market is cool because there is coffee, music, and celebrating involved. On top of all that, it starts at 9 am, so it’s not that early and you won’t get flashbacks of your parents waking you up early AF to get a head start deal hunting. There will be cute clothing, some that’s new, some lightly used, and some that is vintage. The event is being thrown in honor of the collective anniversaries of El Cafe by Primera Taza, DE FĒ Creative, Fixè Studio, and the birthday of Chuy Tovar Barraza. Get more details here.

When: Saturday, 4/20
Where: El Cafe, 622 S. Anderson Street, Boyle Heights flats
