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.

      Ancient Bronzes Visit  Los Angeles

      Rare, powerful, beautiful, and unusual sculptures from the Ancient world demonstrate the innovations in technique, portraiture, and subject matter during the Hellenistic Period. 

      What is a Hellenistic Bronze? Here’s our explainer on the Getty Iris blog.

      is this the exhibition that just closed in Florence?

      Yes! It was at the Palazzo Strozzi, and will continue to the National Gallery of Art, DC in December.
