A not-so-secret pop-up show will take place at 7:30 p.m. Sunday at the former Dimple Records space, 212 F St. in downtown Davis, to help promote procuring a permanent live music venue in Davis.
This community-inspired event is slated to include music by Tha Dirt Feelin, Boca do Rio, West Nile Ramblers and Alicia Murphy.
The event, which is promoted by the Davis Music Festival, is a “unique opportunity to rock the foundation and rejuvenate its soul,” according to the Facebook page. There is a $5 fee for all ages.
Mayor Joe Krovoza said in an email letter to friends and supporters: “Many are working for a permanent live music spot downtown. … We have solid venues but nothing permanent and ‘always on’ for live music listening, and with a structure for booking acts, publicity, ambiance and great audio.”
Until a permanent venue is located, the Dimple Records location may be used as a launching pad.
“We want to book acts, figure out the structure to re-start live music in Davis,” Krovoza wrote. “Then roll the energy from this time in Dimple/Tower into a permanent space. Where will we end up? No idea.”
While the final destination is unknown, a certainty is that the project needs public support to move forward. Those interested in joining the party may RSVP on the Facebook link https://www.facebook.com/events/590665470948164.
