Ladies and Gentlemen, Fernando y Los Cochinos would like to officially invite you to our Pacoima Radio Sessions Record Release Party and Pacoima’s 20 Year Anniversary! This Latino extravaganza will take place on Cinco de Mayo (5/5) with doors at 8pm and show starting at 9pm. Los Cochinos and I will be converging on the Star Theater stage to perform Pacoima in sequence from beginning to end for probably the last time…until it’s 25th anniversary ha! We are very happy to officially announce that one of the best new bands in Portland Sávila will be joining us for this show! They mix Latin cumbia, world and r&b together to make something completely new and all their own so I think that ya’ll are going to really dig them! Also, kicking off the evening is one of my and Los Cochinos favorites… Trujillo! All profits from the sale of our first ever live record “Pacoima Radio Sessions that will be sold at the show ((CD and Vinyl) will go to provide music scholarships to local high school students. I have an inkling that this show might sell out so we highly encourage you to pre-order tickets ASAP. This is going to be one hell of a party!
