Instead of ringing in his new administration on the traditional July 1 inauguration date with some stuffy fancy gala, Eric Garcetti, the mayoral elect, is choosing to make the celebration a big free public block party this Sunday, June 30, 6-9pm, featuring food, music and fun for the whole family! Moby will be performing (check out Garcetti jamming with him below) along with 3 or 4 other acts…not yet publicly announced but a little birdy has leaked that they are Buyepongo and Jungle Fire, 2 of my favorite LA bands, and DJs Raul Campos (KCRW) and Canyon Cody (Subsuelo). There will be food trucks galore and it’s going to be a hot, sunny weekend…perfect weather for an outdoor evening party, so get yourself to City Hall to meet the new Mayor and celebrate! If we’re lucky, we might even get a taste of Garcetti’s break-dancing skills! If you get there early, you can enjoy Grand Park‘s monthly Sunday Sessions right across the street too!
This is just one of the many awesome events happening around LA and featured in my weekly events list…want more fun things to do in LA?
