PERSHING SQUARE KICKS OFF FREE HOLIDAY
WINTER CONCERT SERIES FEATURING 17 LIVE PERFORMANCES
DEEJAYS IN DECEMBER AT DOWNTOWN ON ICE
LOS ANGELES – Drive in movies are gone, but “glide in” music is the latest chill factor as the Downtown on Ice holiday skating rink kicks off its FREE winter concert series December through January. The stage is adjacent to the ice rink that is open everyday through January 20th at Pershing Square (532 South Olive Street).
“Spinning” sans skates, deejays Cody Nadeau and Cameron Trowbridge of BRKLYN will host Club Nights every Friday in December from 8:00pm to 11:00pm with an infectious electronica groove. (http://soundcloud.com/
