GP's season-opening block party kicks off on Grand Avenue with L.A.’s own DENGUE FEVER. The band’s concoction of early psychedelic garage band guitar inflections, Cambodian folk pop, R&B and James Bond-like soundtrack music will have everyone swaying and dancing to the band’s way-out tunes. New York City-based turntablist/mixmaster DJ Logic (Living Color, Body Count) and celebrated guitarist Vernon Reid (Living Color, co-founder Black Rock Coalition) will turn up the heat with their band the YOHIMBE BROTHERS. Crunching rock guitar hooks, hip hop beats, reggae riddims and world music collide to create some of the most adventurous sounds on the planet. OZOMATLI closes the evening doing what only OZO can do – make the party not just a party, but a booty-shakin’ lovefest! Please Note: No outside alcoholic beverages will be allowed in Street Festival.
