An Evening with Swamp DoggGrammy Museum (800 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA) Map it $20
R&B artist Swamp Dogg is a true musical maverick. Called "a one of a kind musical genius” by Entertainment Weekly, his music’s been described as "a strange combination of Sly Stone's progressive funk with Frank Zappa's lyrical absurdism.” Dogg’s lyrics ponder love, sex, politics, race, and war, while his sound is classic Southern soul. Currently enjoying a career insurgence, thanks in part to a series of remastered CDs and vinyl reissues of his early work, Dogg makes a rare local appearance at an intimate venue: the Grammy Museum's Clive Davis Theater. He'll perform and be interviewed by Los Angeles Times music journalist Steve Hochman.
