The Sunday scene on West Beech Street in Long Beach can be as active as any stretch on the Island. Home to more than a dozen bars and restaurants, the venues combine to create a crawl where people can easily roll in and out of places, grab a drink and take in some sun. There’s always some music playing, too; some of it light acoustic, the rest jukebox-generated or piped in – but come Saturday, June 30, there’s a chance some seriously energetic live sounds might be found down at one spot in particular.
Starting at 3 p.m., Speakeasy in Long Beach will play host to “Day Sessions,” a multi-set show featuring musicians local to LB. Performances from artists like Sean Corrigan, Timmy Fasano and others are being promoted – advertised as acoustic sets – but with Corrigan and Fasano belonging to loud, punk-to-hard rock bands All Grown Up and Saints, it’s hard to imagine there won’t be at least a bit more energy than the average unplugged show tends to generate.
Furthermore, there will be raffles from the Stay+ print and clothing company to benefit Peaceful Minds, a nonprofit community wellness center offering programs and complementary therapies to combat veterans who served in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
