Portion of flyer from the Long Beach Neighborhood BBQ

Tomorrow, a neighborhood group called We Love Long Beach is hosting a BBQ. Free food and kid stuff can easily beckon the locals, but it's also band friendly with the lies of Deep Sea Diver (photos of Jennifer Dobson of DSD in a post by Koga) Original Colonies and Tijuana Panthers (Saturday, 1-4pm, at Livingston Park in Belmont Shore.).

Then on Sunday over at the All Star Lanes in Eagle Rock, it's prom night with Fol Chen and Castledoor. It's free and the bowling is cheap (8 p.m. Bands, 10:00 p.m., Dancing)
