Long Beach Events for 5-20-2016

I used my dowsing rod (aka the internet) and saw that this weekend brings high 60’s, low 70’s with some partly sunny skies.  Very little chance of rain so there’s no real excuse to sit inside and do nothing!  Unless you want to.  This weekend is concert listing simply because so many great musicians are playing here.  Here is a listing of some Long Beach Events for 5-20-2016.

Long Beach Events for 5-20-2016

Friday

How about getting your body painted and your eyelashes extended?  Pink Party is happening at WE Labs on 205 Anaheim.  Get treated to live music from a number of musicians including LaLa & Faith, Jess Montana, James Kennedy, DJ Les Ortiz and Marie Parie.  The party starts at 7 p.m. so get your tickets!

Neon Trees are here for Long Beach Pride and are playing Friday at 7:00 p.m. at in Long Beach.  Of course, Pride is going all weekend and will pretty much dominate all of downtown and Ocean blvd.

Saturday

Want to boost your knowledge of Long Beach and burn off that beer belly?  What better way than to strap on your walking shoes and go for a historic Downtown Walking Tour.  This Saturday, starting at 9 a.m. will be show casing some of the Art Deco Style.  Tickets can be found here.d

The US Sumo Open is happening on Saturday at 1 p.m.  Yep.  Sumo is here!  And it’s at the Pyramid.  Only in Long Beach can you enjoy Japanese Sumo Wrestling in a Pyramid.  Grab your sushi and beer while over 60 competitors from over 10 countries compete “head to head”.  Is there another way that Sumo Wrestlers compete?

Feeling like an Abro-Cuban groove?  Arturo Sandoval will be performing at the Carpenter Center of Performing arts this Saturday starting at 8 p.m.  If that name sounds familiar, he was recently on the Stephen Colbert show having a “trumpet off“.  You can guess who won.

Dej Loaf will be rockin’ the house (or park) this Saturday starting at 9 p.m.  If rap is your wheel-house, stop on out and be seduced by the lyrics.  Here’s a sample of her music.

Sunday

Mindi Abair is playing Sunday, starting at 1:00 p.m. at the Grand Long Beach Event Center in Long Beach.  Get your tickets for “Jazz at the Grand“.  She’s been on American Idol and spent a summer with Aerosmith.
