Liberty Station Concerts

ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station welcomes the return of Liberty Station Concerts, a wildly popular free concert series inaugurated last year thanks to Season Sponsor Rock Church. The four concerts, presented outdoors on the grassy North Promenade on Sunday evenings, will feature a collection of popular San Diego musicians and acts. Audiences are invited to bring a blanket, a picnic and a love of live music. Produced in partnership with Damian DeRobbio, of Beer, Food & Music, the venue is set up to allow lots of room to dance and get up close to the acts.

OPENING ACT: Rebecca Jade and the Cold Fact

This act will deliver body-moving grooves to its brand of beach city soul, paying homage to the pioneers of the genre while adding vintage West Coast textures and psychedelic overtones. Whether digging down into gritty funk or lifting the roof on some high-octane gospel, the Cold Fact’s deft musicianship proves the ideal complement to Jade’s powerhouse performances. She glides smoothly between sultry sweetness and diva brass, conscientious of each song’s feel with every syllable and every purposeful breath.

HEADLINER: Earl Thomas

Earl Thomas will ignite audiences and bring rock and roll, R & B and blues to the ARTS DISTRICT. The two-time Grammy Award-nominated artist has won four times at the San Diego Music Awards! Also a songwriter, his songs have been covered by Tom Jones, Etta James and Screamin’ Jay Hawkins.

Sunday, August 26th

The Redwoods Revue

The Redwoods, a local independent record label and music collective, will create a show from its growing list of talented artists. From hard-hitting soul and swampy psychedelic rock to desert noir and spectral folk, the label brings together songwriters, musicians and vocalists of the highest caliber, with a shared purpose to strive for a new standard for musical collaboration and song craft.

Sunday, September 23rd

OPENING ACT: Iron Sage Wood

Iron Sage Wood, featuring Damian DeRobbio, Paul Cannon and Abner Nevarez, will play a soulful groove combined with world rhythm and conscious lyrics. ISW moves audiences to laugh, dance and sing along. Writing songs of hope and transformation, their work encourages an uplifting human experience all the while blending elements of world beat and Native Americana.

HEADLINER: Vaud & The Villains
Sponsored by Seacoast Commerce Bank

Back by popular demand, Vaud & The Villains were the highlight of last summer’s concert series. The big show is a 19- piece orchestra and cabaret, which has evolved over the years from a folk band singing traditional tunes to an originally voiced genre-bending spectacle commonly described as Americana Noir meets Moulin Rouge. Bring your dancing feet! The ever-evolving cast of the show is composed of a five-piece horn section, incredible vocalists, a rhythm section and three dancers.
