Troup with The English Beat at Santa Monica Pier Thursday August 15

Britpop is not dead! It’s alive and well right here in Los Angeles, where British rocker Alex Troup came to lay down new roots after leaving the UK. Alex formed his band Troup after meeting keyboardist Evan Beigel, and joined by guitarist Claudio Tristano, bassist Darren McGuire and drummer Graham Roby, they beat out other LA bands recently at Rusty’s Emerging Artist Competition to earn them a spot in the 29th Annual Twilight Concerts summer series. So bring a blanket and a picnic and enjoy the sunset over the beach, as they open for the iconic 80s British band The English Beat this Thursday, August 15, on the Santa Monica Pier.
