The Hookworms [UK]

The Echo

1822 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90026

10:00am

Hookworms’ reputation, like The Hum itself, lies in the drone and the uncontrollable constants of their music that remain even after they’ve shattered its thick atmosphere with sharp punches of proto-punk-inspired malevolence. Flinging themselves into the public’s consciousness with 2013’s Pearl Mystic, the debut LP’s perfect storm of billowing textures and napalm-filled Modern Lovers licks was one of the most-acclaimed albums of the year – receiving plaudits from The Guardian, Uncut, the BBC, NME, Drowned in Sound, Loud & Quiet (it was the latter twos Album of the Year) and many others.

GRAMMY Museum

800 W. Olympic Blvd, 800 W. Olympic Blvd, 0

12:30pm

Ralph S. Peer, was a pioneering A&R man and global music publisher who saw the universal power locked in regional roots music and tapped it, changing the course and flavor of popular music in the United States and around the world.

In the course of an adventurous, sometimes even revolutionary fifty-year career, Ralph S. Peer  (1892-1960) opened the door to previously marginalized music, then fostered its global success, playing a key, founding role in creating the durable blues, jazz, country and Latin pop fields. Lasting genres and businesses developed and grew because he opened those doors; the pop music sounds we’ve heard ever since were reimagined.
