Jimmy Buffett will perform Saturday, Aug. 9, as “Shark Week” invades Hermosa Beach with the inaugural FinFest. “Parrotheads,” as his fans are known, will be able to see the “Margaritaville” singer for free by the H.B. Pier at 6 p.m.
UPDATE: The stage is on the beach, left of the pier… you shouldn’t be able to miss it. 🙂
The free two-day event, which is part of Discovery Channel’s 27th week-long celebration of the ocean predator, will be filled with various shark-themed activities starting at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 9, and Sunday, Aug. 10. There will be live music atop a huge shark mouth stage from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday and from noon to 7 p.m. on Sunday. In addition, a special screening of Air Jaws: Fin of Fury will be shown on a large video screen that will officially kick off Shark Week at 8 p.m. on Sunday. There will also be live cut-ins throughout the weekend and interviews with folks in the crowd airing on the Discovery Channel along with steady streaming of the festival on SharkWeek.com for “fin-atics” everywhere. Bands scheduled to perform throughout the weekend are John Butler Trio, Common Sense, Matt Costa Band, The Groove Trotters and North Mississippi Allstars. There will also be a 60-foot mechanical shark referred to as ‘Sharkzilla’ who will be chomping various items every hour.
