The May 13 – 15 event at Redondo Beach will also feature sets from Stone Temple Pilots and Jim Lindberg of Pennywise – the latter having curated the SpeakEasy Stage.
“The Jack Daniel’s SpeakEasy Stage was such a huge success that of course we have to bring it back this year,” says Lindberg. “This time out we have our good friend the legendary Art Alexakis of Everclear, prolific punk rock singer/songwriter Joey Cape of Lagwagon, Yotam Ben Horin of Useless ID, Dan Kelly from Fortunate Youth and Moi Juarez from Tomorrows Bad Seeds, among many more. Just like last year, the Jack Daniel’s SpeakEasy is going to be the place to be all weekend – just keep it in the family!”
BeachLife co-founder / producer Allen Sanford adds of the whole event: “Especially during these dynamic and uncertain times, BeachLife Festival has become something that the beach community can look forward to, breathe easy, and smile. Watching the greatest bands in the world with the ocean breeze of the Pacific and the sunset at our back is something that we never get tired of, and we look forward to sharing that experience again to a sold-out but spaced out audience.”
Other artists set to perform include Cold War Kids, Atlas Genius, Vance Joy, Capital Cities, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Matisyahu, Sugar Ray, Sheryl Crow, Lord Huron, The Allman Betts Band, Ozomatli, and more.
The guys in Weezer have been staying busy. Back in August, they shared a version of “Enter Sandman,” one of many stellar Metallica interpretations featured on the Metallica Blacklist covers album. Released on September 10, the star-studded, 53-track collection boasts “unique interpretations” of songs from “The Black Album,” which celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2021.
