3 Questions with Ryan Kelly of Gerard & Kelly

June 19, 2014

Why L.A.? Why did you choose to work in this city in particular?

I went to school here. I never would have thought I'd end up in California.  

How has your time in L.A. shaped your work?

In L.A., I can read and write. That has made the work we do together better. There's no better place to read than Los Angeles.

Favorite place in L.A. Go.

The Chateau, on a Sunday, hotel-side, but you have to pretend you have a room. Venice Beach boardwalk, to feel a bit of New York's dirtiness. Culver Mountain, to get above the smog and breathe some fresh air.

Gerard & Kelly perform Reusable Parts/Endless Love at the Hammer this Saturday and Sunday from 5-8PM.
