DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES – The FIGat7th Downtown Festival returns this summer to LA’s premier shopping and dining destination with free outdoor concerts featuring performances by leading Pop, Rock, Jazz, Soul and Alternative artists. On Friday, July 18 Jonathan Wilson and Mystic Braves will be performing.
With 2011’s critically-lauded debut, Gentle Spirit, audiences worldwide were introduced to the prodigious talents of singer, songwriter, record producer and unrivaled guitar hero Jonathan Wilson. Gentle Spirit was celebrated for its authentic exploration and modern updating of the “Laurel Canyon sound.”
Wilson’s follow-up, Fanfare, was recorded over a 9-month period at his Fivestar Studios in Los Angeles and features contributions from Graham Nash, David Crosby, Jackson Browne, Josh Tillman (aka Father John Misty), Wilco’s Patrick Sansone, Dawes’ Taylor Goldsmith and Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench from Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. The album is an ambitious, epically grandiose rock production that has conjured notions of Dennis Wilson’s Pacific Ocean Blue amongst more than one music journalist.
From 4 – 7 p.m. guests can eat, drink and lounge with DJ’s at the Taste. 7 – 10 p.m. guests can drink at City Tavern’s Festival Bar and Beer Garden on the Plaza, 8- 10 p.m. experience great music at the festival and then head back to City Tavern at 10 p.m. for the afterparty.
