Countdown to Lummis Day: Eugene Edwards Band

Eugene Edwards and his Band will appear on Stage One following BombaChante in the mid afternoon slot, Sunday, June 7 at the Lummis Day Festival.

Here's a quote from Edwards' website: "I'd like to be thought of as the guy who reintroduced whatever it was that Springsteen, Tom Petty, Elvis Costello - the post-Dylan songwriters - had. And, like The Clash has shown that if you have just one person standing in front of you, you owe it to them to sweat every bit that you have in your body - I want to be the guy who, if they want to hear one more song, I am ready to give it to them. If they're still standing at the end of a 45-minute set, I feel like I've done something wrong."

The 4th annual Lummis Day will take place at three locations: Lummis Home (poetry and music from 10:30am-noon), Sycamore Grove Park (music, dance, theater and food from12:30pm-7:30pm) and Casa de Adobe (art exhibits, from 1:00pm-6:00pm).

The 4th Annual Lummis Day: The Festival of Northeast Los Angeles will be presented on Sunday June 7 by the Autry National Center, the Annenberg Foundation and the neighborhood councils of Northeast Los Angeles (Arroyo Seco, Historic Highland Park, Greater Cypress Park, Eagle Rock, L.A. 32 and Glassell Park.) Media sponsors are KPFK Public Radio 90.7 and Univision KMEX Channel 35. Additional sponsorship is provided by the Highland Park Heritage Trust, Jose Huizar and Council District 14, Ed Reyes and Council District 1, the Department of Recreation and Parks, the Los Angeles County Arts Commisssion, and Poets Writers Inc. through a grant it has received from the James Irvine Foundation.
