Since we all know I’m in love with KCRW, we all know that I’m definitely going to take some time to pay attention to the “Also I Like To Rock” festival, which is always good summer times. Starting July 7th and taking over every Thursday in July at Hammer Museum. Headliners include Graffiti6 (I really like those kids, actually), The Soft Pack, Grouplove, and The Henry Clay People. Swipe from the KCRW Blog:

KCRW is partnering with the Hammer Museum again for the free, all ages music series Also I Like to Rock, which takes place at the Hammer on four consecutive Thursdays in July

The night kicks off at 7pm with DJ sets by KCRW’s own selectors followed by two band performances, including headliners Graffiti6, The Soft Pack, Grouplove, and The Henry Clay People. The full line up is below.

Admission is on a first come, first served basis AND the museum galleries stay open late so you can take advantage of the tunes and the art appreciation all at once.

Also, if you’re a KCRW member, you get priority entry and exclusive access to the VIP lounge. That’s how we roll!

Head over to the Hammer Museum site if you need more info, and enj0y.

So remember how I geeked out over that Shaun Boothe record that used that awesome sample from Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody? Well he’s returned (not that he ever left) with some new freshness for you to enjoy. “Do It For You,” his newest track hitting the internets is a uplifting dedication from Shaun to the art of Hip Hop and Music in general (“they say theres no money in music/so you should KNOW I do it for you”). You can check out the song and a short video with him taking you through the heart of his native Canadas by checking the YouTubes and stream/download the song by clicking here.

Find more music from Shaun on his YouTube page… and enjoy.
