Lakeview Commons hosts its 50th Live at Lakeview concert this Thursday, Aug. 18, with a performance from Swamp Zen and headliner Diego’s Umbrella.

“It’s an honor to have spent 50 weeks, over the last five summers, bringing our incredible community together to celebrate this beautiful place we live in,” Rob Giustina, of On Course Events, said in the company’s news release. “This is an epic milestone for our company, the City of South Lake Tahoe and all the dozens of local partners who collaborate to make it all happen!”

Nine-piece funk band Swamp Zen opens the show at 4:30 p.m. before Diego’s Umbrella makes its South Lake Tahoe debut headlining the event.

“Celebrated as San Francisco’s Ambassadors of Gypsy Rock, these world-renowned entertainers have rocked festival stages from Outside Lands to Bottle Rock Napa and they’ve created an irresistible cocktail of music that is entirely their own,” according to the release.

Diego’s Umbrella blends “marching drums, harmonized shredding and gang choruses with showmanship,” according to the band’s online biography.

“In their music you will hear klezmer, flamenco and punk rock all blended to pop perfection,” according to the biography.

Swamp Zen will “honor the jam band tradition by never playing a song the same way twice,” according to the band’s online biography.

The free music begins at 4:30 p.m. on Aug. 18.

Lakeview Commons is located at the corner of Lakeview Avenue and Highway 50. Parking is limited, but a free bike valet service is offered every week.
