Save The Date: Silver Lake’s Polka Dot Plaza unplugged

The lime-green dots of Sunset Triangle Plaza, aka Polka Dot Plaza, will serve as a backdrop on Friday for an afternoon and evening of  acoustic, grassroots and lo-fi music.

More than 15 bands and performers, most of them from Silver Lake, will perform during the Sunset Triangle Plaza Acoustic Concert, which  is part of  Make Music Los Angeles, a dayof free musical events that will be held on the summer solstice. Neighbors are encouraged to come down to listen and even become part of the show, according to a concert press release:

Neighbors, participants & guests are invited to bring blankets and folding chairs to spread out in the plaza and enjoy the music in this grassroots & lo-fi outdoor neighborhood concert, as well as to bring their own musical instruments and voices to make music during the afternoon and in the community jam that will close the evening and concert together in unison.

Friday’s concert, which is supported by several Silver Lake organizations, is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. Click here for details and a line up of performers.


  1. OMG MEgan!!! Sarah!!!! Get your Soy Latte and Gluten free brownie and head on down……! Drop your doggy off at the day care cause no dogs allowed!

      Having said that – I checked out the lineup and it appears this little fest is geared towards an… ahem… older demographic. (So tell Megan’s mom & dad.)
