8/15: OV Co-Presents Ojai Rancho Inn Summer Series w/ Nite Jewel!
Join us tonight at the Ojai Rancho Inn for the second installment of the Cool Summer Series featuring Nite Jewel!
California native Ramona Gonzalez first began her transcendent minimalist dance-pop escapades in the privacy of her Los Angeles home. With the aid of her multitrack cassette recorder and whatever keyboards, drum machines, and other instruments she could find, she quickly developed her sound and began performing live in the L.A. area under the moniker Nite Jewel. Over the past few years, Nite Jewel has honed its pop-funk craft with releases on reputable indie labels Italians Do It Better, Mexican Summer, and L.A.’s own Gloriette Records. In that time, her airy but often distant voice has found new gravitas and charisma. Meanwhile, the synth lines have gotten more agile and the bass pops tighter, with stuttered ‘80s synths and R&B melodies that unfold into one another in ways both giddy and deceivingly nonchalant.
Sounds amazing, doesn't it? Just wait until you see where this show is being held! Located in the picturesque mountains of Ojai, CA and just a short drive from Los Angeles, Ventura, or Santa Barbara, the Rancho Inn offers a welcome escape from the routine city venues, as well as a scenic spot to catch intimate performances by these hand-selected artists. (Think California campground meets rustic charm.)
Besides providing a magical backdrop, the Ojai Rancho Inn will be opening its doors at 4 p.m. for ticket holders to enjoy a meal on the venue lawn (bring a picnic or grab a bite from the on-site food truck), sip a drink, or cool off with a dip in the pool.
Throughout the next three months we will be teaming up with our media sponsors, KXLU 88.9 FM Los Angeles and KCSB 91.9 Santa Barbara for on-air ticket giveaways. Tickets are also currently available for purchase online at coolsummerpresents.com or in person at OV and Warbler Records and Goods in Santa Barbara. All shows are all-ages and start at 8 p.m. and end at 10 p.m. Tickets are $12 +$2 service fee.
We really hope you can make the trek. It's gonna be a blast! All shows are presented by: Cool Summer, Shelter Social Club, Origami Vinyl, KXLU, KCSB, and Warbler Records & Goods.
