Get in the Twilight Groove
June 2008 | by Bill Michalsky


Grab your beach blankets and chairs, and pack your picnic baskets. The Summer Twilight Concert Series, sponsored by the Del Mar Foundation, begins on June 17, 7pm, at Powerhouse Park with Atomic Groove . Following will be local favorite Midnight Ramblers with a Rolling Stone Tribute appearing July 15, starting at 7pm.

Our third concert will bring Cactus Twang & Whyte , with Grano and Nash and special guest Eve Selis on August 19 at 7pm. In September, the final concert will be on Sunday, the 21st, featuring Soul Seduction with more great dance music. They take the stage at 5pm.

This year the concerts are underwritten by the County of San Diego - Office of Supervisor Pam Slater-Price, the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, El Pollo Loco, the Poseidon Restaurant, Epazote Steakhouse and Pacifica Del Mar. We thank you all!

So gather your friends and neighbors and join us at Powerhouse Park for some great music and beautiful sunsets. As all locals know, you will want arrive early to get your favorite space on the grass. Please support our many fine local food establishments.

And as always please bring a few dollars to help defray the concert costs; there will be an opportunity drawing and concert t-shirts will be available. Parking is always in short supply… consider an early walk to the park. And remember: Tents, umbrellas, BBQ's, fires and smoking are not allowed. Additionally, dogs, even on a leash, are discouraged due to the confined space and heavy traffic.

Hope to see you there. Further information may be found at the Del Mar Foundation website: www.delmarfoundation.org
