Massive festivals aren’t the only way to enjoy music in the sun. On Saturday, July 25, Jitters Coffee Pub in Oceanside plays host to Feeding the Soul Foundations’ O’side Outside Summer Concert Series, this time benefitting Project Youth, an LGBTQ resource center committee. And it’s about to get funky.
The second show of the summer series features two L.A. acts rolling south to croon for the cause, including former Jupiter Rising singer Jessie Payo. The woman has a voice like whoa -- it transforms depending on the genre she steps into, and she can swing country, pop, rock, whatever.
When she rolls solo, however, she sticks mostly to deep and pure Americana. You may be familiar with her music already: She’s played with such artists as Jason Mraz and Lauryn Hill, and her songs have been featured on "So You Think You Can Dance," "The Hills" and other shows. Joining Payo onstage are the Vibrometers. All funk and horns, this group grooves with the sort of sway and swagger that leaves you no choice but to move.
There's going to be lots of food there to give you all the energy you need to dance, with both BBQ and vegetarian/vegan options. Drink vendors will also be on hand with spirits, kombucha and, of course, coffee when the music starts at 5:30 p.m. So get there early -- and hungry.
The Vibrometers and Jessie Payo play Feeding the Soul’s O’Side Outside Summer Concert Series on Saturday, July 25. Music begins at 5:30 p.m. The event is all ages costs $25 (kids 12 and younger get in free) and supports Project Youth. Tickets are available here.
