Who Shot Rock & Roll: Live continued over the weekend with the second of three concerts we are presenting with KCRW - and what a show it was! The night served to bring people together to celebrate music and photography as well as commemorate the 40th anniversary of T. Rex's influential album The Slider - all for free! Portugal. The Man put on an amazing show - one that people were still talking about days afterward.
Droves of people filled the park outside of the Annenberg Space for Photography.
Everyone was in good spirits at this all ages show. Some adults even let out their more youthful and care-free side.
There was a line to enter to see the Who Shot Rock & Roll photography exhibit all day long.
One of the exhibit's featured photographers, Ed Colver, who also attended the Moby concert earlier this month, showed up with his lovely wife Karin.
Before the show, the members of Portugal. The Man came up to the Annenberg Foundation to play for a live televised news segment.
KCRW DJs Dan Wilcox & Gary Calamar began the entertainment part of the night by spinning some records.
The crowd had a good time listening to music...

Portugal. The Man came on stage shortly after 8 o'clock playing their own songs as well as covers of T. Rex tunes.
The band has even compiled their own YouTube video playlist inspired by the exhibit.
The crowd - really energized by the music!
The band ended their fantastic hour and a half-long set with a lively rendition of the Beatles' "Hey Jude."
Thanks to everyone who came out to this magical night to enjoy rock & roll images and rock & roll music. Our third (and final!) show in the free concert series with Band of Skulls & Raphael Saadiq will be Saturday, August 4. Find more information about that night here.
