There is more Than Traffic on the 405

Saturday nights in LA just got hotter with The Getty Centers summer concert series. Enjoy outdoor music and evening views of the city and drink in the refreshing summer exhibitions in a casual and spontaneous atmosphere. The evenings feature performances by your soon-to-be favorite bands, along with DJ sets to open and close the night.

Janka Nabay and the Bubu Gang

Date: Saturday, July 14, 2012
Time: 6:00–9:00 p.m.

Janka Nabay is the undisputed king of bubu, a style of dance music that is characterized by a frantic pace and has centuries-old religious origins in Sierra Leone. The Bubu Gang, featuring members of the Skeletons and Gang Gang Dance, among others, is a posse of musical collaborators Nabay has hooked up with in the US. The Gang creates a wild, high-octane juggernaut of call-and-response vocal interplay, juddering dance-floor rhythms, synths, and guitars.

Nick Waterhouse

Date: Saturday, July 28, 2012
Time: 6:00–9:00 p.m.

Vintage R & B revivalist Nick Waterhouse combines an uncanny old-school sensibility with a charged, contemporary style. His muse is the over-modulated sound of 60s R & B, and his take on such a time-honored tradition evokes the back-alley thrill of New Orleans, Detroit, and Memphis in their heyday. Waterhouse’s live performances, backed by the Tarots, thrill with his pure and undeniably raw and rhythmic take on American music. They’ll perform songs from his forthcoming full-length album, Time’s All Gone, the follow-up to his wildly successful self-produced 45 record Some Place, which sold out almost instantly.
