Saturdays off the 405: Kevin Morby

Located at the Getty Center. 

Enjoy outdoor music and evening views of the city and drink in the refreshing summer exhibitions in a casual and spontaneous atmosphere. The evenings feature performances by your soon-to-be favorite bands, along with DJ sets to open and close the night.

L.A.-based folk-rock singer/songwriter Kevin Morby blends his Dylanesque voice and world-weary lyrics with a beautifully structured indie sound, resulting in a meandering atmospheric quality and palpable emotional complexity that is both eerie and sweetly gentle. Formerly part of the successful Brooklyn-based bands Woods, for which he played bass, and The Babies, for which he was creative partners with Cassie Ramone of the Vivian Girls, Morby sought a reset from the lo-fi indie rock and pop-party vibes which defined those respective projects. He moved to Los Angeles and the change of scenery shifted him toward a sound more rooted in the singer/songwriter tradition of the '60s and '70s, particularly echoing Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, placing him in the company of rising contemporaries like Kurt Vile, Steve Gunn, Angel Olsen, and The War on Drugs.
