Friday Nights at the Getty: The Knitters
The great Los Angeles alt-country band The Knitters have been rambling a tangled map of American musical highways since way back in the 20th century. With their first album in 20 years, The Modern Sounds of the Knitters, these veteran stars of X and the Blasters—John Doe, Exene Cervenka, Dave Alvin, Jonny Ray Bartel, and D.J. Bonebrake—take a fresh musical look at their hometown.

Reservations available beginning April 19 at 9:00 a.m.
