KCRW Summer Nights featuring CUT CHEMIST, BUYEPONGO & KCRW DJ Anthony Valadez
Jul 26 @ 7:30 pm
Los Angeles, 90024 United States
KCRW DJ Anthony Valadez will launch the evening, followed by the vibrant polyrhythmic sounds of Buyepongo. And your Summer Nights at Hammer Museum are now complete with the trailblazing DJ/producer Cut Chemist. A founding member of both Jurassic 5 and Ozomatli, Cut Chemist recently released his long-awaited second full-length solo album Die Cut.
KCRW and the Hammer Museum present three free nights of live music in the Hammer courtyards starting at 7:30 p.m each night. Bring your dancing shoes! The museum’s gallery hours will be extended to 9:00 p.m. so guests can take in Made in L.A. 2018, a major exhibition that takes over the entire museum, showcasing artists from the greater Los Angeles area. Through drawings, paintings, sculpture, textiles, performance, video photography, and installations – many newly commissioned for Made in L.A. 2018 – these 33 artists exemplify the diverse and creative landscape of Los Angeles today.
Event parking is available at 11020 Kinross Ave (UCLA Parking Lot 36) with a flat rate of $5 payable by credit card/cash at the pay station or pay by cell phone through the Park Mobile App. Enter Lot 36 from Kinross Avenue between Gayley and Veteran Avenues. The Hammer Museum is located one block east. Limited parking is also available at the museum for $6, cash only.
It’s also easy to reach the Hammer by public transportation. The 20/720 buses and Santa Monica and Culver City Bus Lines all stop within one block of the museum. You can also take the Metro Expo Line to Westwood/Rancho Park and transfer to the northbound 8 bus, which stops just outside the museum.
