Tonight in Rock: Festivals and a Busy Night

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Two special events are happening today, so get out before going out tonight. Make Music is happening Pasadena today with a great lineup that's free to watch and it's another session of Little Radio's Summercamp in Long Beach (see photos from last week's camp).

Last night, Seun Kuti and the Egypt 80 played a spectacular concert at Grand Performances under the stars at California Plaza in downtown. Hands down, one of the best shows yet this summer. They'll be playing at El Rey tonight.
