WILMINGTON — The concert season at Live Oak Bank Pavilion continues to flesh out with the announcement of two more acts.

American indie-rock supergroup boygenius are scheduled to come through town in June. The following month electronic artist GRiZ makes his annual two-day sojourn as part of GRiZmas in July.

Tickets for both shows go on sale this week.

GRiZmas in July

In January, Carolina Beach Town Council approved of GRiZ performing at Carolina Beach Pier at 1800 Carolina Beach Avenue N. on July 30 as part of a fundraiser for Ocean Cure. At the time, the organizers’ presenting to council revealed the beachside concert would take place after the electronic artist took over the stage in downtown Wilmington.

Wednesday, Live Nation made the announcement official. Live Oak Bank Pavilion welcomes back the DJ, along with a group of six other performers, for July 28 and 29’s GRiZmas in July shows. Special guests include Mersiv, Smoakland, A Hundred Drums, Black Carl!, Saka, and Canabliss.

Before he was a saxophone-wielding musician and producer, well-known for his funk and electro-soul sounds, Grant Kwiecinski, a.k.a. GRiZ, grew up in Southfield, Michigan, outside of Detroit. He released his first album, “End of the World Party,” in 2011, and began touring on the nationwide music-festival circuit. GRiZ has since released six albums, including 2021’s “Rainbow Brain.”

Presale tickets to the Live Oak Bank Pavilion show go on sale, Thursday, March 30, noon, before opening to the general public on Friday, March 31, at 10 a.m. They can be accessed here.
