Grand Performances Kicks Off in Style

If you missed tonight's kick-off of this year's Grand Performances, you seriously missed out. The crowd arrived earlier for a 3pm set by Dengue Fever, stayed for a 4:30 set by the Yohimbe Brothers, and was in full force for the 6pm headliners Ozomatli. While normally Grand Performances takes place on the Watercourt at California Plaza, today's gig was held on Grand Avenue, a great move made to accommodate the large crowd.

Dave, Ed and I were all there with cameras, so consider this little post more of a preview than our full coverage. Between us we probably took close to a thousand pictures, so it may be a bit into tomorrow before we're sorted out enough to find the good ones and figure out how to show them here.
