“Growing up in the greater Los Angeles area, summers have always had a mythical quality to me. Long summer vacations from school, days and nights spent at the beaches and parks with friends, hearing summer radio hits that stay with you forever, and watching beautiful real life sunsets (and then seeing them airbrushed on t-shirts and vans) are all enmeshed to form my L.A. experience in the seemingly carefree 70’s & 80’s.Using the city landscape, combined with the beauty of lucha libre (featuring our local luchadors) and performances from our local burlesque dancers, aerialists, roller skaters, comedians, musical guests, and lowriders, we wanted to pay tribute to the city of Los Angeles and to the summer of 2020 that kind-of was, along with put together an event to encourage all KCRW and Lucha VaVOOM fans from around the world to pull together, stay in, stay safe, and stay optimistic.”
