In Culver City…
Make Music Los Angeles is a countywide celebration taking place all over LA and will be hosting musical performances throughout the day. The event is based on France’s Fête de la Musique, a national musical holiday inaugurated in 1982.
This eleven-hour celebration takes place on the summer solstice. Musical performances pop up organically in a variety of locations, including the restaurants, stores and sidewalks all over LA.
I will be performing with the Country Legends at the Culver City Hotel (on the patio) between 5-6 pm…we may go till 6:30. This is a FREE event. Come on by and say hi.
Thomas Duncan Gallerys presents “Avant De Rentrer, Il Faut Incendier La Maison.” Artists include: Kerstin Brätsch, Nikolas Gambaroff, Lucas Knipscher, Nick Mauss, Charles Mayton, Sean Paul, Clement Rodzielski, Nora Schultz, Valerie Snobeck.

This exhibition focuses on the evolution of certain forms of production that are realized by the dismantling of external elements and uniting them into an internalized and intentionally conflicted whole. This activity is inherently schizophrenic and therefore results in a multifarious yet not unresolved output.
