Free Live Music This Summer on the Santa Monica Pier

Living in Southern California, we are lucky enough to have summer time weather pretty much all year round but it’s during actual summer season that the best events are in full effect. While there are any number of things that we Angelenos can do to start our summers off right, one of them has been an LA staple for the last 29 years and that’s beach side concerts a la Santa Monica Pier.

Twilight Concerts at the Pier kicks off their annual summer music series tonight with one of my favorite bands of the last couple of years, Surfer Blood. Joining the chill-wave Florida natives are local favorites Terraplane Sun, as well as KCRW DJ Jason Bentley and the best part is it’s free. You heard right! A night full of great live music, warm summer weather, and some of the best views in town will cost you $0…that’s a number any of you minxes can agree with!

The music goes from 7-10pm every Thursday night through September 12th and the full line-up can be found here. The good people at the Pier even have a 21-and-over Concert Garden featuring Barefoot Wines and a variety of other alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages; doesn’t a nice glass of Pinot, the sunset, and some great tunes sound like the perfect way to spend your Thursday evenings? We know where we’ll be this summer, see you at the Pier! Inside tip: want in on a secret after party with the hotties of Terraplane Sun, join them at the westside’s hottest member’s only spot 41 Ocean!
