Remi Wolf Announces First LA Drive-In Show To Raise Money For Charity
The first drive-in concert in LA is raising funds for The Plus1 For Black Lives Fund and local LA charity Summaeverythang.
Rising singer-songwriter Remi Wolf will be celebrating her new EP with a special performance as part of LA’s first drive-in concert, taking place on 25 June.
The new Island Records signee and pop eccentric will be donating all of the proceeds from the record release show to various non-profits including The Plus1 For Black Lives Fund ((Movement For Black Lives, Impact Justice, Equal Justice Initiative, The Bail Project) and the local LA charity, Summaeverythang (a community centre that distributes free organic produce boxes to Watts and South Central Los Angeles).
The event will take place in Chinatown, Los Angeles, with space for 120 cars, and tickets go on sale on Wednesday, 17 June at 10:00 am PST. Tickets can be bought here.
Ahead of her long-awaited EP, I’m Allergic To Dogs! arriving on 24 June, Wolf has also shared the Little Dragon remix of her most recent single ‘Disco Man’.
The Bay area native-turned-LA talent has been rising up the ranks this year, dropping a string of infectious singles, from the bouncy ‘Woo!’ to the recent hit ‘Photo ID’ and ‘Disco Man’, along with released 3-D animated visuals for each song.
“It’s pop born from the internet at its most joyful extreme; bright bleep bloops and chatty ad-libs colour the tracks like the Instagram saturation bar slid all the way to 100 percent,” writes Nylon.
After being named ‘One To Watch’ by Billboard, Wolf shared in an interview how she’s had to get creative during quarantine after her tour was cancelled.
“We’re all mutually trying to find ways to get our music heard and connect with fans in really creative ways,” she said. “I’ve taken the route of, ‘Make these videos, release content, post on social media, reply to people’s PMs and pray that people connect with my music.”
With music venues closed for the foreseeable future, Wolf is not the only artist exploring the drive-in concert option. Back in May, country superstar Keith Urban performed for 200 health care workers in 125 cars at the Stardust Drive-In Theatre in Watertown, Tennessee. Since then, others have followed suit including Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson and Los Lobos.
I’m Allergic To Dogs is out on 24 June and can be pre-ordered here.
