Fridays Off the 405
Monsters Are Waiting
Justin Warfield & DJ Adam 12

Date: Friday, August 29, 2008
Time: 6:00–9:00 p.m.
Location: Getty Center, Museum Courtyard
Admission: Free; no reservations required.

Enjoy music and evening views of the city, tour the galleries, and revel in the end of the workweek in a casual and spontaneous atmosphere at this musical happening curated by culture magazine Flavorpill. Fridays Off the 405 features free live music and a cash bar (open until 8:30 p.m.).

See stone come to life in Bernini and the Birth of Baroque Portrait Sculpture (August 5—October 26) and grab your last chance for the art of things that crawl in Maria Sibylla Merian & Daughters: Women of Art and Science (closing August 31). The galleries will be open throughout the night.

Don't miss it—August 29 is our last Friday performance before we move to Saturdays starting in the spring.

August 29, 2008: Monsters Are Waiting and Justin Warfield & Adam 12
Monsters Are Waiting—Annalee Fery (vocals/keyboard) and Andrew Clark (bass/guitar)—offer up sultry, hypnotic haunt-rock that ranges from mellow to frenetic, gloomy to incendiary. Named "a band you ought to know" by the L.A. Times, the Echo Park outfit combines Fery's angelic, slightly smoky vocals (think early Liz Phair with platinum Debbie Harry highlights) with Clark's flawless, seductive guitar to create "moody musical parfait layered with shoegazer drift-offs, indie-style scruff, Cure-esque love pangs and synth pop's gloomy allure," riffs the San Francisco Chronicle.

Monsters are Waiting

Opening the night with an equally Cure-esque vibe is a DJ set from Justin Warfield & Adam 12 of She Wants Revenge, who mine the depths of the SF Valley to create a soundtrack for the dark and debaucherous. Playing to "scorned lovers, bored housewives, jaded hipsters, gender-benders, and club-kids" (and any combo thereof), they spin tales of betrayal, lies, and deceit set to a catchy and infectious beat.

Coming Next Year: Saturday Music!
Fridays Off the 405 will end with the event on August 29, 2008, but will be back this spring with exciting new music and programming. Check our event calendar beginning early 2009 for details.
