Sometimes I Like To Roll, But Also, I Like To Rock: KCRW & The Hammer Present Free Music Every Thursday In July
KCRW and the Hammer Museum are rekindling their warm weather romance to present the 2011 Summer Night's Music Series Also I Like to Rock beginning July 7 and continuing every Thursday this month.
The free, all-ages, outdoor concert series is held in the museum courtyard and features emerging artists curated by Buzz Bands L.A. Each event will kick off at 7:00 p.m. with a KCRW DJ set followed by two band performances. Hammer galleries will stay open until 9:00 p.m.
