Hammer Bash with Llyn Foulkes & Norton Wisdom performance @ Hammer Museum
Don’t miss your last chance to see Nine Lives: Visionary Artists from L.A., and definitely don’t miss the concert by the legendary Lynn Foulkes on his one-man band called the Machine. Created by Foulkes, the Machine is comprised of dozens of found and invented instruments such as car horns, organ pipes, drums, xylophone and bass. Foulkes will be accompanied by performance painter Norton Wisdom who creates magnificent visual interpretations of live music using brushes, sticks, his fingers and a squeegee upon translucent fiberglass. Parking is available under the museum for $3 after 6pm.
