There was a Thursday night kickoff party at Gladstone's in the Long Beach Marina for the return of Summer And Music (SAM) to the streets of Long Beach. SAM is "downtown Long Beach's homegrown, sustainable concert series providing an entire summer of free music to the public". Many of the events will take place in the actual streets of the Queen City that will be closed off and fitted with stages and sound equipment.
