We’re thrilled to Welcome The Paranoias to the My Grito family. The self described ‘Your Ladies Favorite Band’ have been tearing up the West Coast for a few years now mixing Latin ska fusion, R&B, reggae, soul, jazz, punk and hints of electronic proving they’re one of the most innovative bands in the LA scene right now. You won’t have to wait long at all, their new Split EP with Profesor Galactico “Nightmare / Hope To See You Next Year” is out THIS FRIDAY October 16th.
We're excited to release today, our first in a series of charity compilations aimed to help communities and organizations doing good for Latinos. My Grito presents MAS ALTO! A Charity Compilation. All proceeds raised from this compilation will be donated to No Us Without You LA.

Please Welcome to the My Grito roster... Orange County’s 3LH.
Taking inspiration from 60’s surf, fuzz, punk and reverb-filled guitar tones, 3LH bring a sense of newness to a classic sound. Comprised of Rafa Heredia (Guitar/ Vocals), Johnny Villanueva (Keys/Guitar) Kevin Carranza (Drums) Favian Vega (Bass), 3LH deliver the tones of the likes of guitar virtuosos like Link Wray, The Kinks, mixed with the garage / punk sensibilities of modern acts like The Growlers, The Frights and Tijuana Panthers.
Immersed in the Latino punk/garage DIY scene of Orange County, 3LH has made a name for themselves having played to packed crowds at The Observatory, Constellation Room, The Garden Amphitheater, The Smell and shared the stage with diverse acts including Tijuana Panthers, Tropa Magica, The OC Hurricanes, Mystic Braves and more.
The band will release a new single in October titled “Here’s Johnny”, to kick off the release of their debut LP out in early March 2021.
In the meantime, get familiar with 3LH by checking out their latest single “Don’t Wanna Hold Your Hand”, available now to stream everywhere.
