Of the 568 summertime series in our city -- various events that focus on the watching of films, the dancing outside, flower arranging, cartwheeling competitions -- there are really only a couple that are particularly LA.
Okay. So there isn't a summer series devoted to cartwheeling. Yet. But you know that's coming. Soon.
The Twilight Dance Series at the Santa Monica Pier could not be more particularly LA if you painting "particularly LA" on a humungous hat and made the Pier wear it. It is, after all, an event that happens steps from the Pacific, our largest, wave-foamiest neighbor.
The move-it-to-music series opens on July 8 and runs every Thursday through September 2.
The first show features Congolese trance sounds from Konono No. 1. Everything starts up at 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 8. What moves will you impress the Pacific with? That ocean has seen a lot. Better bring it.
