In addition, music producer and recording engineer Glenn Suravech will be doing a live recording of the J-Town Summer Sessions concert and producing tracks of select pieces from each artist.

Join us as we celebrate the sun, the shade, and the sounds of J-Town with a live concert recording outside the beautiful Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple. Keep cool with a day of music, live art, handmade vendors, and community in Little Tokyo/Downtown L.A.
