Live at Lakeview-Tahoe

When temperatures in the valley soar to the upper 90s and 100s, you know it’s time to head to the big beautiful lake in the sky. That’s right, Lake Tahoe is most definitely where it’s at in the summer, specifically South Lake Tahoe, even more specifically on Thursday evenings for the awesome beachfront concert series known as Live at Lakeview. Tried and true for five seasons now, Live at Lakeview is celebrating their 50th show this Thursday, Aug. 18 with headliners Diego’s Umbrella making their South Lake Tahoe debut. This San Francisco-based gypsy rock crew has rocked such large-scale events as Outside Lands and Bottle Rock, so it’ll be a real treat to see ‘em for free on the beach in Tahoe! Opening the show at 4:30 p.m. will be Swamp Zen, a big, badass funk band from Chico. The Live at Lakeview series then wraps up for the year on Thursday, Aug. 25 with ska/reggae/rock veterans Lavish Green headlining with support from blues/rock outfit, and South Lake Tahoe locals, the Wesley Orsolic Band. These events take place at Lakeview Commons, located on corner of Lakeview Avenue and Highway 50. Admission is free, shows run from 4:30–8:30 p.m., and all ages are welcome.
