Also I Like to Rock: Nico Vega & The Growlers

Thursday Jul 3, 2008 8:00 PM This is a past program

With an outstanding live show and music that straddles the line between credibility and accessibility, LA-based Nico Vega is rapidly developing a powerful fan base, entirely by word of mouth. Witnessing a unique kind of devotion, this is rare for a band that has not had any formal publicity or released its first full album. 

Imagine The Doors locked in a garage in the throes of an electric Native American dance ritual. You’ll find yourself being swept away by the natural forces of The Growlers from Westminster, California. 

Also I like to rock

Rock returns to the Hammer courtyard this July for a series of free concerts hand-picked by local independent radio powerhouse Indie 103.1. Each night features back-to-back sets by some of the best breakthrough bands. Galleries open until 9pm. 


Public programs are made possible, in part, by major gifts from the Annenberg Foundation, and Ann and Jerry Moss. Additional support is provided by Laura Donnelley, Bronya and Andrew Galef, an anonymous donor, and the Hammer Programs Committee.
