When You Awake Presents A Tribute To The Beach Boys
Filed under: News | Posted by: jody
Mark your calendars now! On Saturday, June 19th we will be taking over the backyard of Historical Monument 157 for an evening to celebrate the songs of The Beach Boys and to support the Sweet Relief Musician’s Fund, a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to career musicians who are facing illness, disability, or age-related problems. We decided to make this charity our beneficiary after the passing of Vic Chesnutt, who was a big supporter of the Sweet Relief Fund and we will be making the donation in his name.
The night will feature performances of classic Beach Boys songs by Victoria Williams, The Chapin Sisters, Leslie Stevens of Leslie and the Badgers, Joel Jerome of Dios, Whispertown (Morgan Meyn), Red Cortez, The Tyde, Big Search (Matt Popieluch from Fool’s Gold and Foreign Born), The Dustbowl Revival, Charlyne Yi, Hi Ho Silver Oh, My Pet Saddle, The Blank Tapes and more. Members of The World Record and The Parson Red Heads will take up the duties of our lovely house band with between-set entertainment provided by Howard Kremer from Comedy Central, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Scare Tactics, Steve Agee from the Sarah Silverman Program and DJ Dougg Pound from Tim and Eric on Adult Swim. Plus Sterling Andrews of Gooseberries will host a Beach Boys-inspired photo booth.
And did I mention the raffle? A number of folks have lovingly donated items to be raffled off for $1 a ticket (you can buy as many raffle tickets as you’d like), including a guitar from Traveler Guitar signed by all of the performers, autographed Brian Wilson and Beach Boys LPs and DVDs courtesy of Capitol Records, box sets from Rhino Records, lessons from Learn to Surf LA, dinner at Kincaid’s Restaurant on Redondo Beach, a gift certificate to Purity Organic Skin Care Boutique, a Supergirl gift basket from Warner Bros., cupcake delivery from Scootabaker and jewelry by local designer Eso Meliae. Plus! The first 50 ladies through the door get a keepsake from Bloomers! of Austin.
Tickets are $14 in advance, $16 at the door and you can buy them online or in person at Origami Vinyl. I recommend buying them now because this event will sell out. Oh! And this goes without saying, but 60’s-inspired beach attire is suggested. Facebook Invite is here. Stay tuned to When You Awake for more details!
