Del Mar Summer Concert Series: Wavves

Since they first hit the scene in 2008, Wavves, led by Nathan Williams, has been a subtle yet popular presence in the current music industry. Commonly captivating a youthful audience, Wavves’ music captures the essence of the Southern California lifestyle with a bit of an edge.

From San Diego, California, Wavves utilizes a mixture of classic surf vibes, psychedelic studio sounds, and a hint of garage punk rock that ultimately yields Wavves’ unique sound.

Wavves’s third and latest album, "King of the Beach," is a telling compilation of fun, hyperactive, summery tunes that frame the burden of teen angst and undying apathy. Wavves’s infectious young sound is perfect for blasting in the car with the windows down, hair flowing, as you are beach bound.

Date: Friday, July 20th, 2012.
The first race is at 4 p.m. with the last race scheduled for approximately 6:30 p.m.
Concerts are free with race admission.

All concerts will be held at the Seaside Stage. The improved venue offers better sight lines, the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop and better access to concert-goer services and amenities. Visit delmarscene.com to see the entire 2012 Del Mar Summer Concert Series lineup or for more information.
