LONG BEACH INDEPENDENT is Local and Worldwide

ThePrimeSpot.TV (Long Beach, CA) ThePrimeSpot.TV is proud to announce that local entertainment website LONG BEACH INDEPENDENT is showcasing local talent of Long Beach, California on cable access TV. SHEA NEWKIRK, musician, web designer, and entertainment organizer and promoter has been sharing the local scene on the web and live in person since 2003.

To see the scope of coverage, just google his moniker "Shea Shizzle." Not only is this guru talented in promoting upcoming events, he has served Long Beach and its entertainers voluntarily for the past 10 years by videotaping gigs and events and sharing the shots via social media and his own website, (formerly LBPP - Long Beach Party Project).

Long Beach has never had a site so cohesive showcasing local talent like Long Beach Independent. It contains photos, videos, a list of upcoming shows, venues, and even a newsletter. "Shizzle" also created a facebook page, "Long Beach Musicians" where artist can share resources, inside information, recommendations, post their needs and sometimes just let off some steam. Club562 recently handed over management to LB's "Live Music" MEETUP as a thank you for 10 years of creative, hard work, benefitting not only artists but local businesses, tourism, and of course Long Beach as a whole.

To fund Shea's passion for bringing the music community together - local and touring musicians AND music lovers of many genres - he earns a living by designing graphics and websites for artists, restaurants, companies, products, cities, NOT exclusive to Long Beach. Check out his portfolio on

Adding Community Television as an outlet only seemed natural for "LBI." Padnet.TV just restarted cable access in Long Beach on Verizon Channel 41 and Charter Channel 32. Since Newkirk is NOT a proponent for "pay to play", the producer fee was covered by a "promoter of promoters"; content includes clips of songs from various artists playing in Long Beach, affectionately known as "The LBC." Newkirk's gifted Meetup page also has a sponsor.

If you're unable to catch the clips on TV or Video on Demand, you can always browse videos on his entertainment promotions website,

And don't forget to check out Shea's own band, hidden among all of the LOCAL talent, products and services that make up Long Beach Independent
