ALSO I LIKE TO ROCK: Foreign Born & Warpaint

Friday Jul 17, 2009 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM This is a past program

Foreign Born

Grizzly Bear's Ed Droste called Foreign Born his "favorite new band" in a recent Pitchfork feature.

"The band [has a] feel for anthemic '80s rock shaded by complex arrangements and cathartic moments that make the likes of Modest Mouse and Arcade Fire so appealing." —Los Angeles Times


“This is some hip, sultry, stimulating stuff. Warpaint is making a musical sculpture with pinches of psychedelic, post-punk, and dream-pop clay in a very non-blatant and interesting way.” —Classical Geek Theatre

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. 

Additional support is provided by Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, and the Hammer Programs Committee.
