What Does “La Posada” Mean?
Las Posadas, (Spanish meaning “The Inns”) is a religious festival celebrated in Mexico and some parts of the United States between December 16 and 24. Las Posadas commemorates the journey that Joseph and Mary made from Nazareth to Bethlehem in search of a safe refuge where Mary could give birth to the baby Jesus.
In this case, it’s an inclusive celebration of family and friends, hosting new and upcoming talent, plus bringing communities and cultures together through music!
Who is iZCALLi?
The celebrated Denver band (and close friends of ours) were named for the Mexican birthplace of member-siblings Miguel (lead guitar/vocals) and Brenda Avina (bass). Being from both sides of the border (drummer Luiggy Ramirez hails from Colorado) and formed in the Denver over a decade ago, iZCALLi has, over the course of five LPs and thousands of shows, mixed its evolving sound from tradition, their Latin roots, and love of rock + blues. The result is a loyal flock of fans of every color, from every background.
What Is Convergence Station?
Convergence Station, Meow Wolf’s third permanent installation, is the first stop on a quantum journey of exploration and revelation. Curious wanderers will discover psychedelic, mind-bending art and an underlying rich narrative: when a cosmic event merged four distinct worlds from unparalleled universes 27 years ago, the inhabitants were left with only fragmented memories, beckoning them to unearth what really happened. The immersive art exhibition is brought to life by more than 300 creatives and 110+ Colorado-based artists who have woven their own personal stories throughout the converged worlds. Convergence Station features four floors of immersive experiences, dozens of installations, infamous portals, secret wormholes and is Meow Wolf’s most ambitious project to date.
La Posada Toy Drive
In the spirit of giving, La Posada is also organizing a toy drive benefiting children of families in need due to the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. They’re collecting new, unwrapped toys for children ages 0-12 on site the night of the show. Each individual who donates a toy will be rewarded with a limited edition iZCALLi swag bag and entered into a drawing to win one of a kind iZCALLi merch! Toys will be donated to Adelante Community Development and will be distributed to local children in the Denver Metro area as part of Adelante’s annual toy giveaway.
Denver’s Latino community has been hit hard by COVID-19, and many hardworking people have been impacted through the loss of employment. Join iZCALLi and Meow Wolf in making Denver children’s lives a little brighter by donating a toy.
