Plenty of Mint music choices near Torrance

May 21, 2013 by  

Beginning a rich few days of music in the area, a different style of orchestra will perform at 8:30 pm tomorrow night at The Mint in Los Angeles, located at 6010 West Pico Boulevard, less than half an hour from Torrance.

The Dustbowl Revival, based in Venice, is a folk orchestra that performs ethnic roots music. It is comprised of 12 musicians who play the washboard, tuba, clarinet, trumpet, banjo, pedal steel, kazoo, and blues harp, among other more conventional instruments.

The vintage, high-energy music is written and composed by Zach Lupetin. The orchestra has performed more than 100 shows in the past two years and is based in Southern California. After releasing the highly acclaimed album ‘You Can’t Go Back to the Garden of Eden’ in 2010, the orchestra was the winner of the 2010 Independent Music Award’s Americana Song of the Year for ‘Dan’s Jam’.

Music lovers can follow up that performance with The Flobots at 10:30 pm on Thursday, May 23, back at the Mint once more.

This progressive rap group is based in Denver, Colorado and its shows features music with a political conscience. The group has opened for such bands as The Fray and Public Enemy. The first Flobots album was released in 2005, and in 2008 the group signed with Universal Music Group.

Finally, The Alan Broadbent Big Band will perform at 8:00 pm on Friday, May 24, at the Marrioutt Los Angeles, 5855 West Century Boulevard, Los Angeles. Flyer printing is one way it could become easy to notify residents of upcoming musical events.
