FREE Live Music Series 2018 in Carlsbad Village Starts Tonight!

FREE Live Music Series in Carlsbad Village Starts Tonight!


Summer is just around the corner and outdoor events are ramping up in Carlsbad Village by the sea.


Choice Superfood Bar and Juicery in CarlsbadTonight is the 1st Friday night of 6 consecutive free concerts. Tonight the fun will be at the Choice Superfood Bar and Juicery, a very cool shipping container restaurant with a small 7,500 SF artificial turf park at the corner of State Street and Carlsbad Village Drive (other locations in Del Sur and Solana Beach) that open in 2014.


They have all sorts of good and healthy plant-based foods and beverages (all gluten and dairy free) that you can enjoy while hanging out in the park.


Just a small aside…Carlsbad restauranteur James Markham is opening The Village Yard by this summer, with 2 other new container restaurants adjacent to the small park, Crack Heads (offering a morning-focused menu including breakfast sandwiches) and Rolled Up (sushi burritos, Lobster rolls, and shrimp rolls), featuring a bar, outdoor dining and a dog-friendly vibe.


Anyhow, back to the FREE music in the Village, offered tonight by the Carlsbad High School Jazz Ensemble starting a little after 5 pm (I heard them at the Night of Lights event in the Village and they were terrific!). According to the Carlsbad Village Association the Jazz Ensemble musical offerings will include ballads, boogie woogie, be-bop and some blues – what a great combination!


Carlsbad Chocolate BarStay tuned for 5 more consecutive Friday nights in June (June 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29), with more free music from 6 – 8 pm at 2 nearby venues – the Carlsbad Chocolate Bar (wowza, free music and CHOCOLATE!) and the Viz Art Ink Gallery just down state Street, with 1 evening in front of Sea Coast Exclusive Properties.


Here's the schedule for June 2018:


June 1 - John Caruso (Viz Art Ink Gallery) + Will Sumner (Carlsbad Chocolate Bar)

June 8 - Bad Carls (Sea Coast Exclusive Properties) + Cesar Barros (CCB)

June 15- Evan Diamond (VIZ) + Brooke Ehlert (CCB)

Hi Nina Hollander 

I suspect the Carlsbad Chocolate Bar would be a big draw for many. It's a pretty popular place and they have all kinds of other stuff besides chocolate.

Well I had hope to make it into town last night but it didn't happen. Hopefully sometime in June will work. There's a lot going on in the summer in the Village.
