When music and art collide, awesome things happen. Here to give you the best of both worlds, Century City’s Annenberg Space for Photography brings you one the most-anticipated photography shows of the summer paired with a free concert series.
“Who Shot Rock & Roll” is the space’s latest exhibition and takes the prize as the only West Coast show of its kind. With more than 100 prints from iconic photographers and its own short documentary, the show shines the spotlight on the people who snapped photos of some of the biggest stars in rock and roll history.
Not only can you see some of the greatest rock star photographs taken for free admission (and only $3.50 validated parking), but you can stay later for one of two upcoming free concerts. The space joined forces with KCRW to present a series of three, free all-ages concerts to take place on special nights.
Moby kicked off the series with an acoustic set and you now have the chance to catch Portugal The Man on Saturday July 21st or Raphael Saadiq and Band of Skulls on August 4th. The July 21st show also includes a set from KCRW DJ Jason Bentley and the August date also includes DJs Dan Wilcox & Gary Calamar with a T. Rex remix EP release celebration. On concert dates, the space is open from the morning until a little after the end of the show but you must RSVP for a spot and check-in before the show.
Yeah, we know Century City is totally business-like and official, but the Annenberg Space for Photography is anything but! If you dig art and free concerts by cool bands, definitely check this out. “Who Shot Rock & Roll” runs until October 7th so even if you miss the concerts, swing by for the show!
