Arleigh Kincheloe, the lead singer of Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, captivated the Tahoe community last week with her enthralling voice and her gorgeously grandiose stage presence, which is about 20 times her actual size. The band, well-known for their relentless tour schedule, made a stop in Tahoe on their way to Mammoth Lakes and Petaluma and I personally feel super lucky that we had them on our stage at Live at Lakeview!
Week 7 at Live at Lakeview brings us the return of 40 Watt Hype, who will certainly close out our evening with their special crowd-pleasing blend of hip-hop, R&B and latin fusion. Last year, on the more Latin inspired tunes, Live at Lakeview had quite the salsa dancing crowd.
Cumbia-fusion band Candelaria will open the evening. What is cumbia-fusion you ask? Candelaria applies dub studio techniques and reggae style bass lines to traditional cumbia and other Colombian rhythms, developing a completely unique style of dance music with electronic sensibilities and a raw, live feel. It should be an amazing blend of modern and traditional and a neat twist for our Thursday night entertainment!
Check out free music here in Tahoe South every Thursday from 4:30-8:30 PM at Lakeview Commons from June 26th-August 28th. Please ride your bike and utilize the free bike valet or find plenty of parking at the SLT Parks and Recreation Department on Rufus Allen Blvd. The proceeds of all sales of alcohol from the beer garden support the series and I encourage you to either imbibe in the garden or make a donation in one of the donation boxes around the Commons Area on the night you attend. As always, Live at Lakeview is a free community event. Please be aware of the following city ordinances in Lakeview Commons Park: no dogs, no outside alcohol and no smoking.
You can find my weekly wrap ups, photos and previews of the next concert all summer long here and on Tahoe South.
