Latin Alt HD3 Presents: Irene Diaz

Irene will hit the Paramount stage in support of her new album.

Support: Banana Leaf Boy, TheyWept (DJ set)

Doors: 8pm

Throughout her life, Irene Diaz has always been about The Search. For identity. For expression. For music and her place in it, and for a creative community and direction that best serves her mission. All of that can be found in Diaz’s songs and on Lovers & Friends, the California singer-songwriter’s debut full-length album which was recorded in both Mexico City and Los Angeles. With its captivating melodies and richly nuanced ambiance, it introduces Diaz as an artist who’s taken many paths to get to this point and is excited to find even more creative roads to travel as she moves forward. Lovers & Friends is, in effect, a new beginning for Diaz and a fresh destination for what’s been a long musical path. What began in 2013 with the I Love You Madly EP—and praise from NPR’s Felix Contreras raving “her sheer power belies her compact stature, and her musical impact is simply immense.” At the same time, Diaz is already eyeballing her next creative Way station. “This has been a big project that I never imagined taking so long,” she says. 

The Paramount LA requires that all persons entering the building for a ticketed show, provide proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID test within 72 hours of the show. This applies to all ticket holders.

Attendees will also be required to wear a mask, should any indoor mask mandates be in effect by either the City or State at the time of the show.

“Anyone who hears your voice will wonder where have you been all this time. ~ Don Gonyea, NPR All Things Considered "You can’t fake the soul… Irene is so believable in her emotion." ~ Jasmine Garsd, NPR Alternative Latino “She brings back classical American soul and blues and elevates it to a whole new level for today’s audience…. quite possibly, someday (Irene) could join Ella and Nina and Billie and Rosemary as a queen of torch.” ~ Patrick O' Heffernan, Vents Magazine
