Long Beach Michelle Mangione
On Friday evening, May 16, 2014 Long Beach women will take to the streets in Long Beach’s 2nd Annual Rally and Dyke March.
First Fridays will be a “Green Scene” on April 5 as Bixby Knolls celebrates spring and Mother Earth. Song birds, guerilla gardeners, seeds & saplings, recyclers, re-users, Earth Goddesses, and organic farmers are encouraged to come out and green-up Bixby Knolls.
Those that know have always looked to Long Beach for great music and emerging talent. Snoop Dogg and Warren G weren’t the only musical acts to take off from the streets of the LBC. Sublime, Melissa Etheridge, Nate Dogg and The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band all spent time playing Long Beach venues on their way to the top.
Calling all April Fools! First Fridays on April 1 promises even more of “the unexpected.” Catch the return of Beer & Politics featuring City Manager Pat West on the panel discussing “all things bikes.” B&P takes place at Nino’s Italian Restaurant, 3853 Atlantic, beginning at 6:30pm.
With 66 shows in the can, tonight’s 67th marks the one-year anniversary for Swoop’s World Radio. On December 9, 2009 Swoop and Peter launched Swoop’s World Radio on the BlogTalk Radio Network with the goal of tapping into the arts, culture, politics and lifestyle of Long Beach and Southern California.
In the wake of the recent BP oil disaster, rock-and-roll icon Grace Slick and Long Beach singer/songwriter Michelle Mangione have joined forces on a new song to be released this week that brings together musicians from across the U.S.
This Friday, March 5, Bixby Knolls’ First Fridays begins at 6:00 p.m., but savvy guests will come early to “Dine on Art-Lantic Avenue.” Have dinner at one of the many restaurants along the corridor, then grab a seat on board the Big Red Bus for a free lift from venue to venue.
The Long Beach Sunday Market on the Longfellow playground has been open now, for three months! We started with 3 farmers and a small food court, and have grown substantially in a short time. We now have 12 farmers who bring us a brilliant variety of seasonal produce, fresh cut flowers, juice, nursery stock (plants and shrubs) and fresh eggs.
Singer, songwriter, acclaimed drummer and recording artist Michelle Mangione will be the scheduled guest on Swoop’s World Radio Wednesday night, December 16 at 9 p.m.
“Speaking with Michelle about music always leads somewhere interesting,” said talk show host Swoop.
Since Long Beach residents, Dodie Carmichael and singer/songwriter Michelle Mangione, partnered up to help Save Mayfair music two weeks ago they are astounded at the response of the generous donations.
So far, the Mayfair High School music department has received more than $8,000 in cash donations and more than 15 various instruments.
