Both Upstream and “Coco” liven the heart with music
The City of Arcadia’s free 2018 summer concert and movie series is approaching fast, so make sure you don’t miss out on the fun. The summer concerts and movies are both on Thursday evenings. Concerts start at 6:30 p.m. and movies at dusk on the west lawn between City Hall and the Police Department. This is fun for the entire family.
Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, and picnic baskets and enjoy an evening outdoors. There is also a free fun zone, featuring games, crafts, and activities each week. In addition, the City is pleased to announce we will be having The Surfer Taco Food Truck at all of the events. The Surfer Taco truck has served the Los Angeles area for several years. Their menu includes a large variety of delicious items which are sure to fill you up and have you coming back for more.
A portion of the proceeds will be given to the Recreation and Community Services Department. Please note parking is provided at City Hall and Santa Anita Race Track at Gate 5 only. For more information, please call (626) 574-5113.
Below is the line-up for July 19:
The band Upstream, whose members include two sons of the venerable inventor of Soca music, the late Ras Shorty I, was formed in the republic of Trinidad & Tobago in 1989. They relocated to Southern California in the early nineties and made a name for themselves performing in numerous venues, events and festivals, throughout California and Western States for over 15 years. Their energetic eclectic style of Reggae and Soca has earned them a formidable appellation in the music industry world. Upstream’s talent, creativity and vision are astounding. All of the musicians are brilliant, quite unique and bring various seasonings to the pot. The band plays an indescribably fascinating blend of Reggae, Calypso, Soca and Steelpan Music.
Despite his family’s ban on music, young Miguel dreams of becoming a musician. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel’s family history.
