Watch: New Netflix Doc Captures The Awesome Latino Punk Scene in Los Angeles

Any place can be a music venue.

A little over a week ago, on a Saturday, a punk show took place across the street from my apartment in the Los Angeles Latino stronghold of Boyle Heights. The venue was a strip mall that used to house a Domino’s Pizza and a laundromat, but burned down in an electrical fire back in January (which just so happen to precede the closure of the Sixth Street Bridge, which fed into the little business area, by a couple of weeks).

A couple of hours into the makeshift show, the cops showed up and did what they do best: they shut down the fun and sent everyone home.

That this show took place was news to me, a non-Los Angeles native that only recently moved to Boyle Heights. But as soon I soon found out, DIY punk shows in East and South Central Los Angeles have been taking place since the late ’70s. Now, thanks to shoemaker Vans, this scene has gotten the recognition it deserves in the form of a documentary. “Los Punks: We Are All We Have” highlights the importance that these punk shows held in unconventional places like garages, backyards, and burned down buildings have for those that attend them.

It’s a really wonderful film that you should see largely because it challenges the conventional view of what Latino kids are supposed to be into, and it showcases how more often than not these chaotic shows tend to be lifesaving. The doc is currently streaming on Netflix. Go watch it now, and then go break some s**t.

Puerto Rican band Los Rivera Destino are back with their new single “Castigo” featuring Pedro Capó. The song is the first single from their long awaited album which is due to be released this summer.

Castigo” is the best of both worlds: fusing Bolero and Dembow, creating a fresh take on songs we would listen to at the club.

We had the chance to interview Los Rivera Destino for Latido Music by mitú, and they talked about filming the music video, songs that they would like to see with Bolero covers, working with Bad Bunny again, and more.
