Summer on 7th Featuring Peanut Butter Wolf, De Lux & More August 2 in Downtown LA

Posted by Amoebite, July 10, 2014 01:22pm | Post a Comment

Ahhh summer in the city. Nothing quite captures the magic and possibilities of a late summer night in vibrant Downtown LA like a rooftop concert -- especially when said concert features performances from De Lux, YACHT and Peanut Butter Wolf. You'll also get to experience art installations from Friends with You and Animal Charm, music by dublab DJs, experimental video games curated by Messhof, and cocktails provided by the Roosevelt Hotel's Spare Room. And it wouldn't be a party without food trucks from Heirloom LA, Guerilla Tacos, Urban Oven and Salt & Straw.

Inner-City Arts

It's all taking place on Saturday, August 2, when Inner-City Arts opens its award-winning campus designed by Michael Maltzan for a celebration called Summer on 7th. Inner-City Arts is a learning oasis in the heart of Los Angeles’ Skid Row where professional artists teach students in a real studio environment.

Tickets to Summer on 7th are $65 advance / $75 at the door and all proceeds support free access to arts education. The event kicks off at 7pm at 720 Kohler Street, on the corner of 7th and Kohler.  

New "What's In My Bag?" Episode with Richard Marx

Posted by Amoebite, July 8, 2014 03:25pm | Post a Comment

Richard Marx

Remember "Endless Summer Nights," "Right Here Waiting" and "Should've Known Better"? Whether cruising to the beach or hanging out at the mall, multi-platinum artist Richard Marx's ubiquitous hit singles were the unofficial soundtrack to the 1980s. Now imagine that smooth, silky voice through the filter of the EDM, trance, and Brazilian music currently on the singer/songwriter's playlist. Marx is back with a new album, Beautiful Goodbye, inspired not only by the dance of seduction, but by some seriously chilled-out dance grooves. But, in the famous words of LL Cool J, don't call it a comeback; Marx has been here for years, writing songs for everyone from Barbra Streisand to Keith Urban to Luther Vandross.

One of the few artists who has the distinction of having written a #1 single in four separate decades, the hardworking Marx took some time to sit down with our "What's In My Bag?" crew and share some of his biggest musical influences. This episode kicks off with Marx choosing a collection by beloved soul singer Donny Hathaway. Next up is his favorite album of all time, Earth, Wind & Fire's I Am. After sharing stories about the artists and albums that shaped his musical career, Marx introduces us to a newer artist, progressive house DJ Morgan Page, whose influence shows up on Beautiful Goodbye.
