Jul. 23, 2015 - Vive Pomona 4 Years Strong With Outstanding Performances

Vive Pomona 4 Years Strong With Outstanding Performances

East Los Angeles, CA July 23rd 2015

At its core, Viva! Pomona is very much a D.I.Y. event put together by a passionate team. This 2-day event brings together international and local artists in an atmosphere of love and true appreciation for what each brings to the stage. The line up put together by pioneer Rene Contreras for this 4th run of Viva! Pomona included a mesh of bilingual acts featuring the all fem Ruido Rosa from Mexico, San Diegan duo PrayersTriangulo de Amor Bizarro from Spain, Chileans pop band  DënverQuita Penas, Vaya FuturoLas Robertas from Costa Rica, and many many more.

When the rain proved to be a challenge, the bands just raged harder. Absolutely nothing was going to ruin the fiesta that was day one! To combat the weather, bands performed indoors at the Glass HouseAcerogami Lounge, and the Glass House Record Store in order to keep dry.

Day one gave way to amazing performances by acts such as Spain’s oh so cool Triangulo de Amor Bizarro, the lovely all-girl badasses of Ruido Rosa, and the Goth cholochingones from San Diego, Prayers. Though there intermittent rain showers, nothing could ruin the vibes these artists were creating.


On day two we witnessed Chile’s power pop group Dënver, some South Central punk with Generacion Suicida, the IE’sbailable Quita Penas, and some psychedelic rock from East L.A. natives, Thee Commons. 

For us music geeks, it was humbling to see the guys of Vaya Futuro and Mercedes of Las Robertas running around and hanging with the crowd. It was great to see firsthand the camaraderie among different bands. Dave of Prayers, and Tony Gallardo (aka María y José) were also seen checking out and showing their support for some of their fellow Viva! performers.


A trending song performed by both María y José and Thee Commons this weekend was Los Saicos “Demolicion”. What’s up with that? IDK, but we LOVED IT!

We encourage all of our Rockeros.Net homies to check out this yearly event. The D.I.Y. vibes means no festival hassles so you can expect overall good times. This year’s Viva! Pomona is over, but we look forward to seeing next year’s lineup and beholding the next generation of insanely talented musicians that are sure to wow us.
