Come celebrate the release of Chócala's debut album w/ special guests Lincka (OK) and DJ Shaanti (Orbit, Dendê, Funkshun)!


Chócala is the sonic amalgamation of latin rhythms, rock, and jazz with a touch of tropical psychedelia, resulting in an experimental, yet approachable, sound with an infectious groove. While layering spacey, ethereal tones on her synthesizers, Liza Ortiz sings about the complexities of the spectrums of mental health and the importance of radical self-acceptance and compassion as Michael Anderson weaves his harmonizing saxophone notes into her melodies with, at times, playful yet precise, delivery. Davey Blackburn on percussion and Claudio Ortiz on bass guitar ground each song, with bombastic rhythms and riffs. After gaining regional attention with a 3 song demo recorded in their practice space, Chócala went to work to put together their first album set to release September 1st 2019.

Chócala's new LP will be available for purchase on September 1st for a ONE TIME special release price of $15 (regular price will be $25, after the release date).

Lincka (OK)
"Lincka’s sound has been described as "beachy-Punk" and "Pop\Soul." Her music brings a very in this moment feeling when you are listening. Lincka Elizondo’s vocal and lyrics are like stardust, and feel most especially universal when she passes fluidly from Spanish to English and back again. “I am challenging my people; who live on the south-side (of Oklahoma City); who only listen to traditional music.” Lincka states when asked how her writing gives a voice to her culture and community. Yes, Lincka’s writing allows her to give a voice to people like herself. It also allows her to define herself and her generation from the backdrop of a culture that is often viewed in narrow terms. The music of Lincka interweaves American and Mexican cultures, rather than outline and define them..."
