Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles Presents Levitt en Vivo: Weekly Live-Streamed Concerts for our Community by our Community
Every Wednesday afternoon starting March 25 to April 22, 2020
WHAT: Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles is proud to present Levitt en Vivo, free live-streamed concerts every Wednesday for our community by our community. The five-week concert series, featuring local artist and bands, will take place every Wednesday afternoon starting March 25 to April 22. Understanding it is important for us to unite and celebrate during these stressful, uncertain times (while still practicing social distancing), Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles is showing up for our community the best way we know how – through music and connection.
The schedule is as follows:
March 25 – Brainstory is a mix of funk, rock, soul or what they call BUCK. Buck is a state of mind, a way of life, a demeanor that gets you through the good times and the bad. Kevin, Tony, and Eric are a trio of brothers bounded by blood, fate, and a small town with nothing to do. These guys have come a long way from their self released EPs and opening tours with Chicano Batman. Their musical growth is undeniable, and their debut record pulls influences from so many genres seamlessly it’s hard to nail down. This show begins at 4:00pm, PST.
April 1 – Quinto Sol Quinto Sol (QS), or Fifth Sun, caries that type of emotion and sound – deeply rooted in community and roots music – from the Americas, to the Caribbean and Africa. Having emerged from the artist/activist community of East Los Angeles in 1994, Quinto Sol is roots-reggae at its core, woven seamlessly with Latin rhythms like Cumbia, rumba, and son. Quinto Sol is a collective of musicians, inspired to use music as a tool for awareness of socio-political and economic issues facing their community.
April 8 – Blanco y Negro are lovers of Jamaican sound; The group preserves the sound of 60’s Jamaica: Ska, Rocksteady, Reggae; and adds a few twists to their musical creations. With contemporary influences that can be heard there’s something in their music for everyone.
April 15 – Cutty Flam is a soulful three-piece Rock n’ Roll band from the suburbs of the San Fernando Valley. Their sound is both retro and modern; With a tinge of Spanish language vocals it mixes genres to produce their very own sonic signature, and accurately reflects their Angeleno upbringing. They pull from their first love genre’s like Rock n’ Roll & Punk Rock, but also blend in some South American Poly-Rhythms to create new pulsating back beats they call Prom Punk.
April 22 – The Expanders are a five-piece band comprised of John Asher (Drums, Vocals), John Butcher (Guitar, Vocals), Roy Fishell (Organs), Chiquis Lozoya (Guitar, Vocals) that have been making reggae fans and critics take note with their refreshing sound that references the “golden era” of reggae. The Expanders build their sound around classic 70’s and early 80’s style reggae, with three part vocal harmonies, conscious songwriting, and an indie-DIY spirit.
WHEN: Wednesday, March 25 to April 22, 2020 in the afternoons, times vary
