Who Shot Rock & Roll: Live was a free concert series created by the Annenberg Foundation and Los Angeles public radio station KCRW to benefit the community. The series consisted of three shows that took place during the Who Shot Rock & Roll photography exhibit, which ran at the Annenberg Space for Photography from June 23 – October 21, 2012.
Staged on the outdoor plaza adjacent to the Photography Space, Who Shot Rock & Roll: Live presented an opportunity for 4,000 people members of the Los Angeles community to experience the exhibit with extended evening hours, live music and KCRW DJ sets. The Annenberg Foundation supports the arts as part of its mission to share ideas and knowledge. The Foundation and KCRW encourage you to continue to support the arts.
