ROCK THE WEEKEND


FRIDAY 8/10:

Norah Jones

Where: Hollywood Bowl

Kicking off this weekend’s steamy acts is none other than the soulful singer/songwriter Norah Jones. This Friday she will be performing at the Hollywood Bowl as part of her Little Broken Hearts album tour. This show promises to be as sultry as ever. If you choose to skip this one, you’re sure to find yourself shaking your head and saying, “I don’t know why I didn’t come” (sorry, we had to).

Jack White

Where: Shrine Auditorium, The Grammy Museum

Famed guitarist, Jack White will be at the Grammy Museum this Friday. However, don’t expect him to be wailing on his axe, instead he’ll be waxing philosophical about his craft. Bob Santelli, Grammy Museum Executive Director, will be discussing White’s art, his rise to the top, and what he’s working on now. You won’t want to miss this no-holds-barred conversation with one of music’s greatest.
