Launching its eighth season, the Downtown Long Beach Associates (DLBA)’s Summer and Music (SAM) has built what is arguably the most respected, the most attended, and genuinely the most loved music event in Long Beach—so founders and organizers felt it necessary to document its history as it moves forward.
Proposed and sponsored by the DLBA, the now-complete short-documentary will screen for free at the Art Theatre on Retro Row on Thursday, May 19 at 6PM, complete with a mini festivals worth of live music courtesy of Tigers in the Sky, Kontrapunktus Baroque, and a very special performance by Greater California backed by the Greater California Choir. Serving as DJ will be none other than Dennis Owens, spinning an entire set dedicated to the sound of Long Beach’s treasured funk night The Good Foot.
The event is free and open to the public but is limited in capacity; seats will be provided on a first-come-first serve basis.
6PM: Doors Open; Dennis Owens spins; Food + Drink from Beachwood BBQ and Brewing, Salud Juice, and Lola's Mexican Cuisine.
