(June 1, 2015 – Los Angeles, CA): On June 16th, Street Vendors and community members will join GRAMMY® Award winning East L.A. band Quetzal and East L.A. Community Corporation (ELACC) in a live performance and screening of their new music video “Coyote Hustle,” a song from the band’s latest album Quetzanimales (Artivist Entertainment). Filmmakers Akira Boch and Francisco Hernandez, who have worked with Quetzal on various projects, including the 2002 “Jarocho Elegua” music video, directed “Coyote Hustle.” The song depicts the realities and struggles faced by street vendors in Los Angeles, the only major city in the United States without a formal vendor permit process. The video release will be coupled with food, art, activism and song making with Quetzal band members. The event is free and open to the public, and will take place at 6:00 p.m. at La Casa del Mexicano, 2900 Pedro Infante Street, Los Angeles, CA 90063.

Quetzal’s “Quetzanimales” First Artivist Release

QUETZANIMALES Album CoverArtivist Entertainment is proud to announce our first album release Quetzanimales on July 29th by GRAMMY Award winning band Quetzal. The album is available for pre-sale at artivistentertainment.com, and at Amoeba Music Store in Hollywood, CA.

In Quetzanimales, the band’s first concept album, Quetzal turns to the matter of animals in urban space—including roosters, ants, owls, geese, squirrels, coyotes, pigeons, spiders, dogs, and butterflies—to imagine a world not merely from the animal’s perspective but that shatters the colonial distinctions between persons, things, and animals. The animals in Quetzanimales come to life through the sounds of funky cumbia beats, bluesy melodies, and country inflected soulful ballads.
