Beverly Joins Kimmel Center's Solstice in the City Lineup, 6/21
Brooklyn indie duo Beverly has been added to the sizzling lineup of artists part of Kimmel Center's Solstice in the City celebration on Saturday, June 21 from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Scheduled for debut record release of Careers on July 1 (Kanine), Beverly will be the first opening act in Verizon Hall kicking off indie rock band performances by San Fermin and headliner Real Estate.
Formed in 2013, Beverly is comprised of Frankie Rose, who is a former member of Crystal Stilts, Dum Dum Girls and Vivian Girls, and Drew Citron of Ava Luna. Their songwriting talents and complementary playing styles introduced their unique pop sound in 2014 with the online release of their first track, "Honey Do."
The Solstice Lounge in the Plaza lights up with a starburst canopy circus tent for a late night party featuring DJ MR Best elevated to perform with his celebrity A-list friends. Skee-ball, foosball, ping-pong and hammocks lead dance mavens to rest underneath illuminated Chinese lanterns and Adirondack chair seating, with Garces Group's Beer Garden providing draught beer from Victory, delectable sandwich bites and concessions. Tier 2 Balcony Lounge will also be serving drinks for plenty of star gazing and street city views of the Avenue of the Arts.
What better way to welcome the summer?
