“…it’s Friday…you ain’t got no job…and you ain’t got sh*t to do.”
Okay so maybe you do have a job and things to do. But if you don’t already have plans for the evening and like jazz, being outdoors, and avoiding the looming Carmageddon nonsense, then here’s a fun, le fance and free option for your Friday night!
Jazz at LACMA features a different jazz band each week – this week featuring the tribute band, Luther Hughes and Cannonball/Coltrane Project. This evening’s concert will also feature a special Photographic Retrospective of the 20 years of “Jazz at LACMA,” showcasing eight LA photographers’ work capturing some of LACMA’s most magical jazz moments. So if you haven’t been to JAL before, you can catch up on everything you’ve missed at this one-night-only exhibit! And, to make Jazz at LACMA that much more enticing, Ray’s and Stark Bar is on-site so you can grab a bite to eat or an after-work beverage or seven while Luther Hughes and Cannonball/Coltrane Project jam out on stage. I mean really, what could possibly be better than sitting, eating, drinking, and listening to some snazzy tunes?
For more on Luther Hughes and Cannonball/Coltrane Project, check out the band’s website for music and video samples.
Jazz at LACMA takes place every Friday through the end of the summer from 6-8PM and is free to the public.
