Every summer one of the greatest things in South California is the Free Outdoor and Indoor Music Series in different venues/locations – live music and dance free to the public is offered during the whole summer every year. Here bellow we cover mostly of this events – or at least the best ones!
The Twilight Dance Series – It has been a Southern California tradition for twenty-two years. After severe storms damaged the Pier in 1983, the newly formed Santa Monica Pier Restoration Corporation and the Santa Monica Arts Commission decided to put together a series of concerts to raise awareness about the restoration project and build community spirit. Putting together a small amount of seed money to start the event, the City staged the first concerts under a large blue and white tent dubbed “The LaMonica” after the ballroom that graced the Pier from the late 1930s to the early 1960s. Long-time friend of the Pier Katharine King named the concerts the Twilight Dance Series and the moniker stuck.www.twilightdance.org
