Five local bands will be at the center of a "Malibu Locals Only" concert at the Malibu Inn as part of week-long festival leading up to the Malibu Music Awards.
The concert, which costs $5, is set for Thursday, Sept. 20 at 8 p.m. at the Malibu Inn.
"When all of the local bands get together at the Malibu Inn, you will hear the experiences of the locals through the sounds of the music as if it is telling stories of a dying culture," said Cameron "Hellwood" Wellwood of the Harsh Carpets.
"You can close your eyes and imagine the floods, the fires, the surf, the sunsets, and our friends and loved ones who have passed. You can hear the voice of our town alive in the moment, and experience it with all of your best friends"
Wellwood said the performance will feature some Malibu classic favorites.
"As a local, it is impossible to play music that is not influenced by this lifestyle that Malibu offers us," he said.
Here is the full lineup for Thursday night:
- 8-8:30 p.m. Michael Stahler
- 8:45-9:15 p.m. Daniel Page
- 9:30-10 p.m. Karma Dealers
- 10:15-10:45 p.m. The Harsh Carpets
- 11-11:30 p.m. 27 Miles
The festival runs from Sept. 17-22 and more information is available at malibumusicawards.com.
