Rolling Stone tells us the PawnShop kings are special, and one of “10 New Artists You Need To Know.”
Driven by formative, familial experiences on their Arkansas plantation, born in Texas, and raised on the beach in Southern California, PawnShop kings play the music of the American South with equal parts rock, gospel, country and pop. Their inspiration stems greatly from the melodic sensibility and purpose of the Staple Singers and Bob Marley atop the brilliant musical sounds and honesty of the Beatles. An early exposure to Southern black churches during their childhood fostered a deeper lyrical significance.
The Blue Water Music Festival – Concert Series is a presentation of the most talented original artists from Southern California and beyond. This series takes elite artists into a more intimate setting that allows the artist to engage with their audience.
This exclusive showcase will take place In downtown Laguna Beach, a Frisbee’s throw from the ocean, there’s an innocuous steel door with a discreet sign that says “BC Space.” Open that door, climb a steep, narrow stairway to a large, bright entryway lined with artwork. Continue into a large open area, the combined studio/entertainment/performance area. Enter this “secret space” grab a beer, wine… then find a perch to soak up the inspiration.
TICKETS: $20 for General Admission / $35 for VIP (VIP Includes: Preferred Seating, a drink ticket and a Meet & Greet.)
