L.A.-based Palenke SoulTribe started off Friday night right. Their mix of electronic and Afro-Colombian beats got the crowd going from the start, and continued through even as they broke out a Colombian gaita flute. Their show stood out from other groups who have live video mixed elements by working in four live cameras they had on stage.
Pepe accordianist from our friends, La Santa Cecilia is seen twice in the photo above. Once through the lens of our photographer and again through the webcam that was mounted in front of him.

Friday night was the first night we had donation buckets on the plaza that were a color other than red. Above you can see two buckets and their artists. The buckets take part in a new art bucket project headed by GP friend, Marcus Kuiland-Nazario. At the end of the summer there will be a show where you'll have an opportunity to pick one up for yourself.
After intermission NY-based DJ Joe Clausell took the stage with his band.
No video from the performance, but here they are at KCRW studios earlier in the day performing live on Morning Becomes Eclectic.
