    Orkestar MEZE is headlining the 4th Annual Wild Beast Concert Series: CalArts Dance Party! This is a FREE, bouncy, high-energy revue of large alumni dance bands drawing from a range of CalArts programs and influences: African drumming and dance, Balkan rhythms and soul, and American funk, soul and RnB. Since we have been hard at work on our upcoming record, this show is our first concert since the beginning of August, and it looks like it will be the only one for awhile (at least in Southern California). So... this will be your only chance this Fall to see us, to listen to some of our newest songs, and to dance the night away. For FREE!!! The show starts at 6pm, we go on stage at 7:30pm sharp. All ages. Bring a blanket to sit on the grass if you'd like. http://calarts.edu/event/2013-10-19/4th-annual-wild-beast-concert-series-calarts-dance-party California Institute of the Arts Wild Beast 24700 McBean Pkwy Valencia, CA 91355
