The Wild Magnolias

Listen to Sample All Skirball galleries except Noah’s Ark are free and open during Sunset Concerts until 10:00 p.m. Be sure to catch the final weeks of the exhibition ZAP! POW! BAM! The Superhero: The Golden Age of Comic Books, 1938–1950, on view through August 9–a great way to prepare for the Super Hero Bike Ride the First Friday in November!

The following week features Omar Faruk Tekbilek Ensemble Thursday, August 13, 8:00 p.m. I remember clearly the first time I heard this music many years ago on KCRW’s Cafe LA hosted by Tom Schnabel. I was reading student papers on the couch on a sunny afternoon. The music came on and electrified me. I stopped what I was doing and listened, then tracked down who it was and found the cd. It’s been a favorite ever since. Please do take a minute to listen to the video of “I Love You” before you move on with your day.

All concerts begin at 8:00 p.m. Free admission; no reservations. Plentiful on-site parking: only $5 per car. No street parking permitted. Limited seating available on a first-come, first-served basis

Dine Al Fresco—Savor Zeidler’s Café’s delicious dinner buffet starting at 6:00 p.m. Reservations required and accepted beginning two weeks prior to the Thursday evening of your choice: (310) 440-4575. Reserved concert seating is available to Zeidler’s Cafe dinner buffet patrons. Or pick up grab-and-go light fare at Zeidler’s Cart. Note: No outside alcoholic beverages or chairs permitted.

Bring the Kids—Music lovers of all ages are invited to the family-friendly lounge. Art projects, toys, and games will be available. Note: Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
