LA EVENTS: Meshell N’degeocello at Santa Monica Pier

Amidst all of the national drama and tension, a night on the pier would be welcomed; Meshell Ndegeocello putting on a free show makes the night an event.

Introducing the Twilight Concert Series on the Santa Monica Pier featuring Meshell, The Record Company + KCRW’s Anthony Valadez on Thursday, July 18th at 7 pm. This event is FREE and open to all ages. Click here to RSVP.

Canonized, marginalized or just scrutinized, Meshell Ndegeocello has given up with the politics of explaining herself. After 20 years in an industry that has called her everything from avant garde to a dying breed, what unquestionably remains is the fearsome bassist, prolific songwriter and the creativity and curiosity of an authentic musical force. With that, she has earned critical acclaim, the unfailing respect of fellow players, songwriters and composers, and the dedication of her diverse, unclassifiable fans. For the sake of setting the record straight, a few brass tacks remain: Meshell was born in Germany, raised in DC, signed at 23, and has been nominated for 10 Grammy awards.

See you there!
