KCRW is bringing the music of Bahamas and Delta Rae to One Colorado in Old Pasadena to kick off a season of free summer concerts. The shows, on Saturday, June 9 and Saturday, June 23, are free and open to the public.
You’ve heard Bahamas’ track “Caught Me Thinking” all over KCRW’s airwaves for months. I know it sounds like it would be “island fare” but it’s actually simple, sublime, melodic pop. Bahamas is the musical pseudonym of former Feist touring guitarist Afie Jurvanen and his music is perfect for this outdoor setting – it’s like a European-style town square! DJ Valida wrote a fantastic review of his most recent album. (June 9)
At SXSW earlier this year, word on the street was that you HAD to catch this 6-piece band from the deep woods of North Carolina, Delta Rae. We’ve been all over their track “Bottom of the River” and the sibling-led band will bring their fusion of gospel, country, folk and rock to the West Coast for this special show just days after the release of their new album. (June 23)
Stream “Bottom of the River”:
Both shows begin at 7:30pm in the One Colorado Courtyard, amidst 17 historic buildings with numerous bars and restaurants nearby. One Colorado spans one city block in Old Pasadena, between Colorado Boulevard, Union, Delacey and Fair Oaks.
