For Immediate Release: Folk Rock is Coming to the California Center for the Arts, Escondido’s Levitt Amp Escondido Music Series!


Escondido, California — :

The California Center for the Arts, Escondido continues the Levitt AMP Escondido Music Series on Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 4pm-7pm!

Headlining the next festival is Kingsley Flood, who will be performing at 5:30pm with the opener, Finnegan Blue starting everything off at 4pm!

Kingsley Flood is a Folk Rock band with a “Billy Bragg-like folk-punk sound” (Washington Post) and “signature high energy” (Rolling Stone).  Esquire described them as, “The kind of hard-rocking folk-punk band that makes you want to dance with the person next to you and then punch them in the face. In a totally good way.” Don’t miss, “One of those bands that matters.” – PopMatters

Finnegan Blue is a face-melting folk band with an Irish/bluegrass/reggae/rock and roll influence. Finnegan Blue captures the essence of Americana by performing high energy original songs written, sung, and played by sibling duo Anna Lee and Willie Fleming.

The Center was recently awarded the Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Award to help transform their underused public spaces through the power of free, live music.  While the program has been transforming cities across the nation since 2015, Escondido is the first city in California to be granted an award.

The Levitt AMP Escondido Music Series is generously sponsored by Escondido Wine Region, The San Diego Foundation, The San Diego Music Foundation, City Beat, Mother Earth, Nordson Corporation Foundation, Southern Exposure, Visit Escondido, Escondido Downtown Business Association and Museums & Arts Growing Escondido Culture (MAGEC).

This event is free and open to the public in the park, so you may want to bring a blanket or lawn chairs. Each “mini-festival” includes food trucks, arts and craft vendors, kids’ activities, and other entertainers in addition to live music. We have a large, free parking lot that you can enter on Escondido Blvd. or Woodward Ave. Additionally, there is some street parking on Broadway at the East end of Grape Day Park. No alcohol, BBQs, or popup tents allowed in the park. All animals must be leashed.
