Spotlight Events: Lucky D's, 24 Hour Music Marathon, Kerrie Caldwell

There are a couple events that I included in this weekend's listings that deserve a little explanation; more than I usually give in a one line listing.

Friday night is the opening of Lucky D's in downtown. I know I'm not the biggest fan of downtown, but this bar seeks to lose the pretentiousness of most clubs and offer an environment that I'd call a down-to-earth with a rock n' roll edge. Mike D designed the drink list with his mad mixology skills and I got to sample some menu items and the chef is amazing with his Asian-influenced small bites. This will fit right in for fans of El Dorado and Voyeur.

On Saturday, you'll notice Jefferson Jay's 24 Hour Music event at Portugalia. Here are some snippets from the press release:

Jefferson Jay’s 24 Hours of Free Music event will feature 70 musicians from all genres -- rock, pop, jazz, hip-hop, acoustic songwriters, and more.

Artists scheduled to perform include Dropjoy, Jefferson Jay Band, Destructo Bunny, Mary Dolan, Rhythm and the Method, Hugh Gaskins, The Greens of Mind, Rob Deez, Wes Davis, Melissa Eisler, Beehive, Chris Zach, Jake Allen, Charbra, Lou Evans Jr., Richard Romero, Joe Khoroosi, Blowski, Jason Burleson, Beer Money, Seven Seas Grey, Levon, Dylan Avery, Edem Bastos, and many more.

The show begins at 2AM on Saturday, June 27 and ends with a jam session at 2AM on Sunday morning, June 28. The event is FREE and an all ages event (with respect to curfew laws, I guess). Portugalia is located at 4839 Newport Ave. in Ocean Beach

Music will begin on Saturday at 2 a.m. (also known as Friday night) and play until 2 a.m. Sunday morning (a.k.a. Saturday night) during the 30th Annual OB Street Fair on June 28. Arrive early and stay late at Jefferson Jay's 24 Hours of Free Music.

The other event worth an explanation is Kerrie Caldwell's Voice Recital. You might know Kerrie from her motown cover band, The Heavy Love, that bring down the house everytime they play. Well, Kerrie's gonna bring down another kind of house this Sunday.

From Kerrie:
I will be singing an array of repertoire including German and French art songs & exciting and emotional opera arias (yes, emo is not a new thing). There will be printed lyrics and translations so you can follow along and know what the heck I'm singing about! I'm excited to see you there! Let me know if you have any questions :)

The FREE performance is on Sunday at 3 pm and will followed by a reception.

St. Luke's Lutheran Church
5150 Wilson Street
La Mesa, CA 91941
