Left Coast Live comes back to Downtown San Jose this Saturday October 8th. 25+ bands will be performing on 3 outdoor stages and partner venues. The event will be in downtown San Jose between South 1st and South Market Streets on Post Street and Lightson Street. The event will feature a beer garden and urban food zone.
In its 3rd year, Left Coast Live is an annual, all-ages music festival which showcases national and local acts in the downtown San Jose area, establishing Silicon Valley as a regional destination for live music. Previous years included performances from OK Go, Neon Trees, Yo La Tengo, Booker T., Lyrics Born and Miggs as well as many local favorites.
What started as an idea quickly became a movement for revival of live music downtown. Members of the community group South Bay Live helped refine ideas, do research and move this idea into reality. This group included: Richard Adoradio of Thriving Artists, Gustavius Aiton of Resonant Frequency Records, Tommy Aguilar of UnGrammar, Matt Beasley of Lumina Music Group, Michael Brilliot of Jazz Mechanics, Lisa Dewey of Kitchen Whore Records and Barbara Wahli of Barb Rocks Presents.
Co-manager Shiela Dowd is active in the music scene and founder of Clever Girls Collective, Sheila is an asset to Downtown San Jose and active in many communities. We wish her and Left Coast Live the best as they take this festival to new heights.
