The second installment of the Hammer Museum’s Also I Like to Rock music series served as the tour kickoff for Admiral Radley, which includes members of West Coast indie rock favorites Grandaddy and Earlimart. They played lush pop from their debut, “I Heart California,” and even included a version of “Everytime I’m With You,” a song from the “Dark Night of the Soul” album which will finally see an official release tomorrow. It was just one of singer Jason Lytle’s contributions to the album. LA power trio Happy Hollows started off the evening with frontwoman Sarah Negahdari commanding most of the attention.
This morning you can hear this week’s headliners The Heavy playing a live set on Morning Becomes Eclectic, just a taste of what’s to come! My favorite local soul revue, Fitz and the Tantrums, will bring a set of funky, fun songs to the museum courtyard THIS Thursday, July 15. This series is free, all ages and presented by KCRW. What more could you ask for?
