The temperatures are rising, the days are longer and the music has returned to the Santa Monica Bay.

The Twilight Concert Series is back for its 28th year with as eclectic a lineup as ever before. When crowds flock to the historic Santa Monica Pier for this annual Westside tradition they will find a stage inhabited by a wideranging lineup that spans everything from indie pop to Latin rhythms to classic reggae harmony.

The series kicks off with Donavon Frankenreiter as the headliner with the Song and Dance Society featuring Jeff Young and Dannielle DeAndrea on July 5. For 10 weeks, the pier will be the center of summer activity in Santa Monica with the last show featuring acclaimed indie rockers Best Coast.

Come down to the beach, enjoy some music and keep on dancing.
