The Museum of Making Music is celebrating all things California with a special concert event featuring the innovative, electro-pop sounds of San Francisco musicians Loquat and the tastes of San Diego’s premiere eats and drinks.
Sponsored by Stone Brewing Co. and Harney Sushi, the Loquat concert on Sept. 29 will delight attendees with free sushi and beer, and the shimmering melodies of this musical collective, all to help raise funds for the Museum of Making Music’s educational outreach programs. Tickets to the event, which begins at 6 p.m., are $50 for general admission and $45 for Museum members. To purchase, visit www.museumofmakingmusic.org or call 760/438-5996.
Loquat has shared the stage with Goldfrapp, Mike Snow, TV on the Radio, The Cardigans and Liz Phair, and has performed at music festivals across the U.S., including SXSW. Through evocative lyrics and ultra-melodic songs, Loquat’s music incorporates elements of new wave, psychedelic rock, indie electronic and jangle-y pop.
Money raised through ticket sales of the Sept. 29 concert with Loquat will help the Museum provide critical access to music through the Doris Karp Memorial Fund and Levi Lipson Fund, which support the Museum’s Music Ventures field trip program and free admission to those experiencing hardship, respectively. Each year, the Museum welcomes thousands of visitors of all ages into its galleries to learn about the dynamic history of music and encourage them to explore their own musical skills on the interactive instrument play areas throughout the Museum.
