Summer and Music Presents The Olms (Pete Yorn + J.D. King), The Blank Tapes and More July 20
2013-07-16 · By Editor
The culture and sustainability series Summer And Music (SAM) presents The Olms, Song Preservation Society, The Blank Tapes, Mystic Rabbit and DJ Dennis Owens on Saturday, July 20, 2013. The Downtown Long Beach Associates (DLBA), in partnership with The Pike at Rainbow Harbor, presents this free family-friendly summer concert on the lawn in front of the iconic Pike Ferris wheel.
Fans in attendance will hear rising alternative rock bands, and organizers are thrilled to present such phenomenal acts. Headliners The Olms, the latest project by Pete Yorn and J.D. King, will perform songs from their self-titled album that “echo the emotional, sweeping sound of certain mid-Sixties pop tunes, with rich hooks and harmonies” as described by Rolling Stone. Since launching the project, The Olms have appeared on KCRW in-studio and on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Song Preservation Society, an LA-based alt-folk acoustic trio known for their vocal harmonies and charismatic live performances, is often compared to Crosby, Stills & Nash or Paul Simon. And Rolling Stone writes that the sound of the Blank Tapes “evokes Belle and Sebastian, Pavement, and The Black Keys – in a San Fran coffeehouse.”
Summer And Music presents The Olms, Song Preservation Society and more is Saturday, July 20, 2013 from 4-8 p.m at The Pike at Rainbow Harbor, on the lawn in front of the iconic Pike Ferris wheel (located at Pine Avenue and Shoreline Drive).
Food vendors will be on site as well as a beer garden sponsored by Auld Dubliner Irish Pub. Free bike valet will be provided.
