Summer and Music (SAM) is back for the 10th time with reinventions of our most beloved events. Up next, Long Beach's ultimate summer-long free concert series brings back TWISTED AT THE PIKE (and the return of our favorite post-neanderthal analogue synthesists) with a nod to the popular Punk Rock Prom theme of 2017.
Twisted at the Pike is SAM’s carnival-centric event that celebrates what makes Long Beach extraordinary. A nod to our diversity, punk rock attitude and fearless pursuit of creative self-expression, the evening is stacked with dynamic entertainment and eye candy. Both Twisted and last year's Punk Rock Prom celebrate dancing to your own beat — writing your own story and reading it loud and proud! So we think it's only fitting to include our favorite things about PRP in this summer's Twisted at The Pike.And we know you like to get fancy, Long Beach. So don your slick slacks or shimmy into that «where am I ever gonna wear THAT?» dress because you might win a prize...and also,it's FUN!!!
Sirena Serpentina Tribal Fire Bellydancers, Stilt Walkers, Magicians, Fire Breathers and other delightfully obscure performance artists will dazzle and charm in addition to a stellar line-up of indie-rock, garage-punk, psych-synth bands.
Craft beer service provided by Beachwood Brewing, including a SAM special brew! And we'll have more satisfaction for your bellies with your favorite carny fare!
Twisted at The Pike will take place at The Pike Outlets, by the Ferris wheel — 95 S. Pine Avenue in Downtown Long Beach (see map below). As always, this event is FREE and ALL AGES.
