Long Beach BuskerFest Tonight!

Buenos dias, amigos!

If you are looking for some good times (for free!) tonight, you should head to downtown Long Beach for BuskerFest 2011.

This is the third time around for BuskerFest, which will be held on three stake-bed truck stages near 1st Street and Linden. These unplugged shows will kick off at 5:00PM with the Pawnshop Kings, Jay Buchanan and Korey Dane playing on the different stages. After this, the competition starts and eleven (I think) groups will perform 30 minute sets to compete for the $2500 recording session prize.

Don’t forget to vote for my personal favorite, Goodfellas…

After the competition, headline acts are Everest and Matt Vasquez will play shows from around 8:45PM. The streets will be closed so there will be plenty of dancing room, and it should be a friendly crowd.

There are plenty of great places to eat downtown, there is plenty of parking (or you can take the Blue Line), so why not grab your friends and head out for some good time?
