The Loft is pleased to announce the Fresh Sound music series, curated by Bonnie Wright, will now be presented at the university’s performance lounge and restaurant beginning March 12, 2011.

Named the Best Venue in San Diego for Music Appreciation, The Loft at UC San Diego is the exciting crossroads where emerging art and pop culture collide. A place where great design, food, drinks, and performance commingle, The Loft will nourish your experience of the arts. Fresh Sound music series echoes that goal.

Each Fresh Sound series consists of four concerts that focus on a theme. The upcoming series will explore Voice and Electronics (previous series at the Sushi Performance space examined Electronics, Percussion, and Reeds).

Fresh Sound is dedicated to bringing music that is new and experimental to the San Diego and UC San Diego communities. The series will immerse you in electronic and acoustic music (often with visual components) that defies classification. From composed and improvised to acoustic and electronic to contemporary classical and techno, Fresh Sound produces music that will move you and leave you wanting more.

About The Loft

A performance lounge and social crossroads where emerging art and pop culture collide. In this high-impact experiment we fuse taste, visuals, sound, and performance in an ever-changing experience.

Bites and Beverages
With all types of social tasting events, The Loft is the place to try something new, explore the culture of food, and learn about the benefits of sustainability. Enjoy a unique beverage during a performance or snack on savory treats before a film.

Designed and furnished by San Diego’s go-to designers, bells&whistles, The Loft interior is a fresh take on mid- century hip. Modern bench seating, sculptural lighting fixtures, plush ottomans, and understated architecture provide the feel of an intimate urban hangout and the perfect setting to absorb artistic experiences.
