As the 2011 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach inches closer the excitement and festivities in downtown Long Beach just keep heating up! With the official Formula D race being held last weekend and the main event this weekend, decided to put together a little showcase of local music for all the race fans flocking to the LBC.

After you check out the Tecate Thunder Thursday event on Pine head down the street to the Basement Lounge where we will be serving up great music for just $5! The talented Taylor Collins will open things up for us at 9pm followed by Robots Rise at 1opm, Starveya at 11pm, and Higgs Boson at 12pm with an extended set for even more tasty jams. In between bands JusTodd will be on the decks keeping your ears entertained and engaged.
