One of the best parts of summer is witnessing live music under the stars. As special as that experience can be, things get extra magical when the concert is by the water as a cool sea breeze rolls in. Luckily, exactly that will happen on eight consecutive Thursdays this summer at the Santa Monica Pier for the Twilight Concert Series.
As always, the diverse musical offerings run the gamut from indie to reggae to soul and beyond, with the likes of Marcia Griffiths, Khalid, Eric Burdon & The Animals, Mon Laferte and more. Did we mention that none other than Warpaint will close the series on Aug. 17? Because that’s major. Sounds priceless, right? Well, guess what, and this is the best part: every single show is FREE.
And don’t miss Warpaint in Rocktober as they dazzle the Hollywood Bowl in support of Depeche Mode. An L.A. band opening for one of their influences in the city’s most iconic venue? Talk about an overload of feels.
