Culver City Announces Line-up for 2011 Music Festival

 

The Culver City Redevelopment Agency will offer free concerts every Thursday evenings from July 7 through August 25 at 7 p.m. in the courtyard of Culver City City Hall at 9770 Culver Blvd. Curated by producer Gary Mandell of Culver City’s Boulevard Music, the festival presents an eclectic mix of music, including rock (Argentinian and classic) jazz (straight-up and Latin), flamenco, reggae, salsa, and Celtic. Parking is free underneath City Hall.

 

I'll be spotlighting the individual artists as their shows approach, but for now, here's the schedule:

  • July 7: Spanish flamenco and percussion with Incendio, followed by Argentinian rock with Los Pinguos
  • July 14: Reggae with Ghanaian artist Rocky Dawuni and his 11-piece band
