We Are LA Festival with Lisa Loeb & Giveaway Through August 21st!
There was always something so cool, nerd chic, about Lisa Loeb. The singer/guitarist who rose to fame with her song, “Stay (I Missed You)” on the Reality Bites soundtrack made her a radio and Mtv favorite. Stellar albums like Firecracker, successful Food Network series, Dweezil & Lisa, as well as several children’s ecords, Loeb certainly has stayed on the radar with her diverse ventures.
On September 17th, Lisa Loeb will be one of the stars gracing the stage at The We Are LA Festival, coming to The StubHub Center in Carson, California. Her co-headliners include Ozomatli, YouTube personality DJ Flula and the magician/comedian, Justin Willman, host of Cupcake Wars as well as family friendly interactive and educational activities, all day long!
“We want to create an environment where the Los Angeles community can enjoy a day of great music and get to know the incredible children’s charities that make a positive impact where we live, work and play,” said Charissa Gonzales, We Are LA Co-founder. “Those who come are familiar with the rock stars who will perform on stage, the goal is to get them to know about the rock stars working behind the scenes for at-risk and low-income children and families,” added Gonzales.
All net proceeds will benefit the following local Los Angeles children’s charities: 826LA, Amer-I-Can, CASA of Los Angeles, Happy Trails for Kids, Junior Achievement of Southern California, Richstone Family Center and LA Galaxy Foundation.
“The LA Galaxy Foundation is honored to be included in the inaugural We Are LA Festival. A special thank you to the Lucido’s for their generous support to make this event possible; the concept of bringing together multiple non-profit groups to benefit and support the work each does in the community is a wonderful opportunity”, said Lauren Nowinski, Director, Community Relations of the LA Galaxy Foundation.
The daylong celebration begins at 11am and runs through 11 p.m. with family friendly daytime activities and an adult contemporary music lineup for the evening. Families will also be able to enjoy interactive activities, including a songwriting booth, guitar lessons, jam sessions and arts and crafts.
Receiving a tremendous out pour of philanthropic support, additional Festival musical acts will continue to be announced. You can visit wearela.org for more information and to purchase tickets…..
