Wave Of New Talent At Santa Monica Twilight Concert Series Starts Tonight

The 29th annual Twilight Concert Series returns to the Santa Monica Pier at 7 pm this Thursday, July 11.

In its customary fashion – organizers have lined up a variety of local acts and world music to excite movement from all corners of the dock.

Last year’s line-up included headliners Best Coast and Amadou & Mariam. Also, an assortment of opening acts who have used their Santa Monica exposure to boost their way unto an international stage – see the three sisters of Haim.

This year, wonted co-producers Rum & Humble have partnered with Spaceland Presents, the company behind First Fridays (music and food events) at the Natural History Museum.

RH&S has written out a menu that goes beyond music – encompassing some gourmet food trucks which have become quite prominent in the past year.
