This year, the concert series will be every Thursday from July 7th – September 8th. Don’t miss out on this exciting concert series while staying in Downtown Los Angeles or the surrounding cities.

If you feel like dancing the night away, be sure to head to the pier on August 11th for some dance music by Rufus Du Sol and Marc Baker. The following week, slow things down a bit for some classic music with Mavis Staples and The Suffers.
On August 25th, get out your converse and flannels for some 90s Alt music with cover band Save Ferris and alternative bands Cibo Matto and Jake Davis.
