Sometimes I Like To Roll, But Also, I Like To Rock: KCRW & The Hammer Present Free Music Every Thursday In July
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.
Although the events are free, admission is first come, first-served until maximum density has been reached. KCRW subscribers (at all levels) and Hammer Museum members get priority entry and access to the VIP lounge.
Newly signed to Capitol, the series' first headliners are UK-outfit Graffiti6 who will be playing a rare Los Angeles show hot off their Morning Becomes Eclectic appearance on Monday, July 5.
