The free Summer and Music concert series continued in Long Beach over the weekend with "Classical Beats"; a fusion of hip-hop and classical violin provided by Paul Dateh and DJ Inka One. If the name sounds familiar, it's probably from their wildly popular (over 4.5 million views) YouTube video.

The Kogi Truck was there to accompany the music with great grub, and the line was an hour long from the time they pulled up until well after the event. The concert took place on the newly-dedicated "Urban Lab: Chantilly Clad" art project site.
