So he got there a little late. So what? McQ made his way in to the jam packed Hammer Museum last week so that he could share some pics with Kill The Mic. Apparently he was trying out this new "There's A Tree In My Lens" lens out. Pretty neat, eh?

If you were there...congrats on an amazing show, assholes. I'm jealous jelly. Enjoy!

Sorry it's taken so long to post these shots. Big thank you to everyone that came out to the show last week. We know you had a ton of options but you being there really meant a lot to all of us. Also, huge shout out to the bands that were all awesome. And last, but not least, Will from New And Used Records, Joe Fielder of Radio Free Silverlake and Kill The Mic's own Joe McQuillen...

The Armand Hammer Museum of Art and Cultural Center

Though this last week was not as packed as the opening night of the Also I Like To Rock concert series, everyone in attendance seemed to have enjoyed themselves.

Red Cortez rocked my fucking socks off...per usual.

Everest chilled the mood with their mellow melodies. Overall, a great night with beautiful weather spent with awesome folks.

Spotted on the scene - Great Northern and The Usual Suspects from the Indie 103.1 crew: Chuck P, Jose Galvan, Heitzie and Jose Maldonado

Be sure to check out the last two of the Also I Like To Rock series:
