ALSO I LIKE TO ROCK: Everest & Red Cortez

Friday Jul 10, 2009 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM This is a past program


A quintet of Los Angeles vets known for churning out fuzz-caked Americana riffs and rollicking acoustics—fronted by Russell Pollard, who has played with Sebadoh, the Folk Implosion, and the Watson Twins, among others. Everest was personally tapped by Neil Young to open his recent North American tour.

Red Cortez

"An intelligent combination of blues, punk, 60s garage and folk, and a hint of shoe-gazer, Red Cortez brings a heritage of nuance that made me a believer."  —The Deli Magazine

Recently appointed to open shows for Morrissey, Red Cortez put it all out there, sweating and oozing a post punk gospel like hot candle wax at the confessional.


Also I Like to Rock

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

ALL HAMMER PUBLIC PROGRAMS ARE FREE. Seating is on a first come, first served basis. Hammer members receive priority seating, subject to availability. Reservations not accepted, RSVPs not required.

Parking is available under the museum for $3 after 6:00p.m.

Public programs are made possible, in part, by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss.
