Every year Grand performances offer a FREE show, this year it takes place during the day June 7th 2008 at Cal Plaza/Marina Pavillion in Downtown Los Angeles.
This year one of my favorite singer-songwriters David Garza will grace the stage (at 3:00pm) Garza first gained noteriety with his 1997 self-released 4-Track Manifesto EP. After refusing major label recording offers, choosing instead to record and distribute music on his own, he eventually signed with Lava/Atlantic to release his major label debut 1998's This Euphoria. As a live performer, Garza is regarded for passionate and charismatic performances, he continues to release his own music. He will also be playing the New Largo on La Cienega in Los Angeles on June 14th.
Also gracing the stage will be Ceci Bastida, whom some of you may know from her early days fronting Rock en Espanol’s progenitors Tijuana No!, or more recently as a member of alterna-pop icon Julieta Venegas' band. Bastida will showcase some of her own new solo material.
Have a listen:
David Garza - "Float Away"
