Robotanists & BoxViolet to play Friday Night Sessions @ California Plaza

Friday Night Sessions @ California Plaza Presents: Robotanists BoxViolet Downtown/Union American Primitive Friday Nights Sessions is a free concert series held on the 2nd Friday of every month. California Plaza is one of Los Angeles' most unique and picturesque areas to see a concert. Bring a bottle of wine and sip it under the stars or have a drink at the adjacent Casa Cantina, all while listening to some of L.A.s best emerging indie bands. Flavorpill writes: "If there is such a thing as a formula to LA's culture of the moment, it might look like this: warm nights + outdoor venues + free tickets + local buzz bands. Friday Night Sessions takes over Downtown's Cal Plaza once a month and brings you what they like to call "pre-Coachella" next-big-thing lineups, and they've got a pretty good track record to back that up. This month stars the Robotanists, a progressive shoegaze quartet with a great EP and a way of smoothing out party rough spots." - Shana Nys Dambrot

    When I hear "concert at California Plaza" I think of real concerts at THE California Plaza, not a couple of bands on the patio of Casa restaurant. If you've ever been to a gig at the California Plaza you know what I'm talking about. It's a big deal. This was a real disappointment.

    I will be there. But I just tried to use the address above to map the location. (Which is funny, cuz I've been to Casa before...) And it brings up a residential neighborhood in San Pedro. So, I think you have the wrong zip code. Just don't anyone to end up at my Nana's house in S.P. expecting to rock out. :-)

    UPDATE: see "How to meet us" section. Regarding Picnic setup. No red wine! White only due to ground stains. You can bring beer or any other beverage and food. I can help you find a place to sit or direct you towards other meetup members at the venue but I myself will be working/bouncing around making sure the bands, sound, venue is going well.
