For those of you stuck in L.A. this Labor Day weekend, no need to fret for there are many things going on in our own back yard. The Queen Mary is host to not one but two festivals on this holiday. Kicking off the weekend is the Shoreline Jam which is a two day event, August 30-31 featuring the bands Dirty Heads, Pepper and many others. Each day is a different line-up of eight bands so I suggest you take advantage of both days.
The Long Beach Funk Fest will complete the Labor Day weekend festivities with the funkilicious groove of George Clinton, Parliament Funkadelic and Karl Denson's Tiny Universe to name a few.
Advanced tickets for Shoreline Jam are $25 ($35 at the door) per day, $45 for both days. The Long Beach Funk Fest tickets are only $15 and if you decide to take advantage of all three days, the special price of $55 is hard to beat. Tickets are available via the Queen Mary Website.
