  Gangs, crime, housing projects, East Los Angeles is a predominantly Latino area with a reputation.  The violent crime rate in East L.A. is double that of the rest of California, and crime in general runs almost three times the national average.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports on an East L.A. band that sings, with joy, about their roots in the community.

   Libraries across the country are undergoing a sea change in public perception.  In their 2015 report, the American Library Association charted a 20.7% increase in library usage over the last decade.  That’s because libraries are becoming much more than a resource for books, HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports they are increasingly technology and community hubs. 

Tonight's show will revolve around Ska music, both old and new, and woven into Jazz, Soul, and Latin Music. 

This show is dedicated to Go Jimmy Go, who are playing their last show next week Saturday at the Republik. More info and tickets can be found HERE.

Tonightʻs show is obviously Halloween themed But weʻre going to keep it upbeat with a lot of New Orleans Brass, and other tasty delights.
