LA ::: Circa '95 Summer Tour Recap

Recently we shared all the magic that went down in Hawaii.
This time it's all about Los Angeles.

No better place to see the city than the Griffith Observatory

Happy Birthday LA - 5k. 
In the middle of our tour 
we signed up and ran a 5K through the streets of LA.
#Wrucrew #Circa95Althletics #NikeNYC
 Reph going for the finish line...
It was a wonderful way to see the city and connect with folks.
Check out the BLACKLIST - LA crew
They run every Monday night @ 10pm
We had a great time running with them !
We visited Ameoba Music, a legendary music store and venue that 
supports indy musicians as well as mainstream artists. 
Ameoba Music was the first place to sell our music. 
This place means the world to us.
Support the shop next time your in Cali.
 Getting a tour..
Checking out the sick Hip-Hop collection
We met up with our homegirl and fellow musician - EAGLE NEBULA.
She shared with us the beauty and struggles of living in Compton.
We also ate some amazing Chicken and Waffles.. 
and before you say it -  Nope it wasn't Roscoes..
The place is called M'DEARS
Go check it out - Let em' know Circa '95 sent ya...  =) 

We met up with our friend KANO - amazing illustrator and designer.
He gave us a backstage access to the Warner Brothers lot. 
It's dope to see someone from NYC out in LA doing big things !
 We got a chance to see the props and costumes from movies like Harry Potter & Batman.
Patty was named honorary member of Hufflepuff's 

Reph is team Gryffindor.
It was also fun to walk through sets that are supposed to look like NYC..
yeah ok... 

So Patty is a fan of Ellen Degeneres.  
We ended up on the studio where she shoots her TV show.
Her Porshe was parked outside. 
Thing is we watched someone - could have been Ellen or
 maybe could have been her assistant get in the Porshe and drive away... 
Patty just missed her. Well she looked down and saw her name 
on her parking spot & took a pic. 
One day... Circa '95 will make it to Ellen.

Props to local LA artist & musician - SISTA EYERIE
For inviting Circa '95 to perform and participate in a community gathering in Boyle Heights.
An entire block in Boyle Heights was given an eviction notice. They have to be out by November.
We spoke with the fathers and mothers who are under so much stress to find a place to live for their families. Gentrification has hit them hard and it has hit us as well in The Bronx. We might be in different cities but the struggles are real in both.We are dealing with the very same problems. We send our love to the people of Boyle Heights and all across America struggling to find affordable housing.
Circa '95 was also interviewed by Yaro Celis co-host and producer of "BlackJack," a 2-hour weekly radio show which airs in 25 radio stations in Latin America with over 1 Million weekly listeners. BlackJack also covers the largest music festivals in the world to bring artists and producers interviews, the latest music news, and audience responses to its listeners.

Props to Reph for doing the entire interview in Spanish

It's always a blessing to be able to share your story.
Hopefully, someone is listening.

We visted Hip-Hop Artist - Nipsey Hussle store.
The Marathon Clothing  on Slauson Ave.
Props to Nipsey for keeping his shop in the hood and also
to his pops for taking this picture.
 Supreme on deck...
Undefeated ....  most definately

Zulu Gremlin invited us to try some Shaved Ice  - LA style.
Not sure if it was healthy - but it was good! It's like a fancy piragua with way more ice.
Why is this not in NYC?

Don't let them steal your power!

We were also invited to perform at the beautiful Westgate Hotel in San Diego on Labor Day.
Met some amazing artists.. like our new friends Julio and incredible Opera Singer pictured above.

Had to make time to check out the homie  - DJ ETHOS
Fresh off Coachella  & usually on tour rocking with Los Rakas

 Artisan tacos anyone?

  No visit to LA is complete without a Taco truck stop!

Guess who we met up with and had dinner with in LA?
Yarrow and Ken Swift ... 
Had such a great time together in Hawaii we had to keep the love going in LA.
Looking forward to Ride The Breaks 2016 !!! 

Reph enjoying the Cali sun.
