Let the Skirball’s eclectic Sunset Concerts transport you around the globe–Thursday nights, this summer. Dedicated to inspiring the diverse populations of greater Los Angeles through innovative music, the nineteenth season of this series once again showcases exceptional global talents, both legendary and emerging.
As always, the six Thursday night concerts are presented free of charge in the Skirball’s spectacular yet intimate central courtyard, where audiences sing, dance, and gather at the foot of the stage to engage with the performers. This season’s line-up features an array of genre-defying music–from Afro-Colombian funk and psychedelic Malian music to imaginative Americana and pan-Middle Eastern grooves.
Reservations are required and start two weeks prior to the Thursday evening of your choice. Call (310) 440-4575. Or pick up grab-and-go light fare, as well as full bar service, at Zeidler’s Cart.
The concert is free, but parking is $10 cash only.

“Saturdays Off the 405”
Where: 1200 Getty Center Dr. Los Angeles
When: Tue-Thu, Sun 10am-5:30pm; Fri and Sat 10am-9pm
One of LA’s most iconic landmarks takes on a new wave of excitement for summer on the Westside.
The Getty is home to architectural and cultural exhibitions that have become a must see place should you live or visit southern California. Fully equipped with beautiful gardens, sculptures, art and breath taking views overlooking Los Angeles, the Getty is sure to leave you speechless.
This one of a kind attraction is taking on a new life this summer. Enjoy free outdoor music and evening views of the city on select Saturdays at the Getty throughout summer. Performances by your soon-to-be favorite bands (the past few years saw shows by Cold Cave, Dum Dum Girls, Lord Huron, Avi Buffalo and Best Coast, just to name a few) are sandwiched between DJ sets to open and close the night. Tip: Avoid the traffic and the crowds and arrive early. You’ll get to visit the exhibits, watch the sunset and snag a seat at the restaurant before the dinner rush.

This past week, The Agency and Giveback Homes partnered with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles for a build day in Compton, CA. The Agency’s Million Dollar Listing Stars, James Harris and David Parnes, and President and Co-founder, Billy Rose, along with Giveback Homes Founder, Blake Andrews, worked with the team to put some finishing touches on the Lopez family’s home.
Romeo and Aracely Lopez have been sharing a one-bedroom apartment in Huntington Park with their three children for the last six years. In their current apartment there is no place for the kids to play, with this Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (Habitat LA) home they are looking forward to more space as well as a yard for the kids to play in. The families are not simply given a house, they have to contribute at least 500 hours of sweat equity on their home. Aracely joined the team for the day, and got her hands dirty in the projects assigned for the build.
“This first build day in collaboration with The Agency is so important to us because this beautiful thing we’re building is not just one home but it’s a better future for this family and the start of a wonderful partnership between Giveback Homes and The Agency,” said Blake, Founder, Giveback Homes.
The Agency, Giveback Homes and Habitat for Humanity team spent the day painting the exterior of the house, installing insulation throughout, securing frames around the exterior windows, and caulking the seams. The insulation, which proved to be a more difficult process and required a huge team effort, was donated and made out of recycled Levi’s jeans.
“The experience to be able to bond with my work colleagues and friends while helping a beautiful family create their home is better than doing any deal. We are truly honored to be apart of this day,” said David. James added, “it was a truly humbling and incredible experience. What a pleasure to be a part of the Giveback Homes family. As Winston Churchill once said ‘We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.’”
The team ended the day with some inspiring messages on the beams of the home for the family. The Lopez’s home is set to be complete in about 6 weeks.
