Free, All-Ages, Outdoor Performances Featuring Pavo Pavo, Wild Belle,
the Tracks, and the Station’s Stellar DJs KCRW AND THE HAMMER MUSEUM ANNOUNCE LINE-UP FOR 2019 SUMMER NIGHTS Featuring Live Music from Pavo Pavo, Wild Belle and the Tracks, and DJ Sets from KCRW’s Anne Litt, Travis Holcombe, Aaron Byrd, Dan Wilcox, José Galván and Scott Dallavo Free, Outdoors, and All-Ages Thursdays, July 11, 18 & 25 Los Angeles, CA (June 18, 2019) - KCRW and the Hammer Museum team up once again to present three free nights of live music and DJ sets as part of KCRW’sSummer Nights, Thursdays, July 11, 18, and 25. This year’s series
features a stellar line-up of artists: Pavo Pavo, Wild Belle and the
Tracks, as well as fierce live sets from KCRW DJs Anne Litt, Travis
Holcombe, Aaron Byrd, Dan Wilcox, José Galván and Scott Dallavo. Pavo
Pavo is the recording project of Oliver Hill and Eliza Bagg. They’ve
become prolific and vital collaborators at the intersection of
classical, experimental, and pop music. Mystery Hour, their second
album, is a focused, widescreen development. Channelling the narrative
drama of the duo’s changing relationship, it is an uncategorizable
record that’s both maximal and compact, a fever dream filled with
cinematic imagery and rooted in acute emotion, written as the two were
separating after a six-year relationship. Oliver’s pitch-shifted
vocals and high melodic synths are a distorted replacement for Eliza’s
floating soprano voice, and cascading strings are an intentional
soundtrack for romantic melodrama. (July 11) Since the release of
their critically acclaimed debut album, Isles, Wild Belle, led by
siblings Elliot and Natalie Bergman, have not stopped. They have
toured the world, playing Coachella, Lollapalooza, Corona Capital, and
Austin City Limits. They have appeared on the Tonight Show with Jimmy
Fallon and Conan. They’ve had their music in dozens of television
shows and films, and lead singer Natalie recently sang the opening
theme for the HBO show The Deuce with Elvis Costello. Their latest
album Everybody One of a Kind is a bold, freaked-out sonic collage of
all the things that brought fans into their universe. The album bends
genres and busts stylistic boundaries. Dub Reggae, Soul, R&B and Pop
are all fair game, as the band lovingly explores this fertile ground.
(July 18) Named for the forgotten trolley tracks that run like veins
throughout Los Angeles, the young rock band the Tracks boldly play
furious, fast music that flies in the face of a genre that seems to
have lost its way. Frontman Venancio Bermudez, bassist Felipe
Contreras, drummer Jimmy Conde, and guitarist Johnny Santana united
over their shared love of rock & roll and are the latest act to
contribute to the rich history of Chicano bands, playing music that is
directly influenced by their background growing up as the children of
undocumented immigrants in East LA. Their music recalls the defiant
optimism of working class bands that came before them and their sound
reminds us to find the joy in dancing to loud music. (July 25) All
concerts are free, open to the public, all-ages, and held in the
Hammer's lively courtyard. A happy hour with cash bar starts at 6:30
PM, so those that come early can visit the Hammer’s galleries, which
will be open until 8:00 PM. Music starts at 7:30 PM. On view at the
Hammer will be Sarah Lucas: Au Naturel, the first American survey of
one of the UK’s most influential artists. Over the past 30 years,
Sarah Lucas has created a distinctive and provocative body of work
that subverts traditional notions of gender, sexuality, and identity.
Organized by the New Museum, Sarah Lucas: Au Naturel brings together
more than 130 works in photography, collage, sculpture, and video to
reveal the breadth and ingenuity of her practice. For more
