Video: Aloe Blacc, Next Up at Saturdays Off the 405

Here’s your new favorite music: “brand-new old soul” from Aloe Blacc, an O.C. native who’s performing this weekend at our free outdoor concert series Saturdays Off the 405.

In this video, Blacc talks about how he creates music that makes you think but doesn’t bring you down—and about the awesomeness of L.A’s own Do-Over DJs, who’ll be appearing alongside (at 4:05 in the video). If you caught Blacc at the Getty back in 2006, make sure to check out his comparison of what you heard then to what you’ll hear Saturday (at 4:47).

And here’s a tip for Saturdays Off the 405: parking is free after 5:00 p.m., so come early to beat the crowds and browse the galleries. It’s the last weekend for Jean-Léon Gérôme, and we’ve got appetizers and signature cocktails on the Restaurant Terrace till 5:30.

      Made with sweat and tears, literally

      Matthew Brandt incorporates the elements of his subject into the making—or unmaking—of his photographs. From lake water to sweat to saliva to tears, particles of the world in which he photographs influence the making of the print. 

      His photographs are now on view (with 5 other contemporary photographers) in Light, Paper, Process open through September 6.
