A concert on the sand, featuring indie act Matt Costa and several other groups, will benefit the Cayucos Pier in November.
SLO Brew, which is putting on the event, will set up a stage on the Cayucos Pier on Saturday, Nov. 16, and sound will be projected to the beach below.
The free concert, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., will benefit the pier and Front Street repairs. Performing acts include Joe Koenig, The Julian Temple Band, the Cayucos Elementary School Steel Drum Band, Makana, Cayucas, and Costa. During the event, Front Street will be closed for additional performances, food, art, beer and wine concessions.
The pier, built in 1876, is missing 14 critical pilings and could be condemned with the oncoming winters pounding surf. Its been estimated that needed repairs will cost $2 million.
Currently, the pier is partially closed to the public because of the structural damage.
