Free summer concerts at the Santa Monica Pier return July 9th with a lineup that ranges from beachy indie rock with Real Estate, to psychedelic pop with L.A.'s own Ariel Pink, to Jamaican dancehall legend Sister Nancy—Bam, Bam!
Mixing in the sultry tropical beats of Cubanismo on July 23rd was a nice touch too, especially with 2015 being such a big year in terms of warming up U.S. relations and travel to Cuba. (We're definitely going back to Havana.) Pre-game mojitos recommended.
See the full lineup listed below. The series runs every Thursday night at 7 p.m. through September 10. The Twilight Concert Series is part of KCRW’s Summer Nights with even more music events happening at other locations throughout L.A.
