August 03, 2011

MUSIC

New MaximumDonkey Known for their catchy, '60s-inflected power pop and their spirited live shows, New MaximumDonkey anchor this installment of the traveling International Pop Overthrow festival. They'll be joined by locals Light FM, Kingsley, Garland and Backnbloom, as well as Jon Lindsay, all the way from North Carolina. The Echo, 1822 W. Sunset Blvd., L.A. 7 p.m. $8. (213) 413-8200. http://www.attheecho.com.

Peter Frampton His golden locks may be shorn, but the British guitar virtuoso is still making sweet music. The Grammy-winning musician just released a new record, "Thank You Mr. Churchill," but his current world tour celebrates the 35th anniversary of his massively popular live album, "Frampton Comes Alive!" It will be performed in its entirety. Fox Performing Arts Center, 3801 Mission Inn Ave., Riverside. 7:30 p.m. $54.60-$132.45. (951) 779-9800. http://www.foxriversidelive.com.

Lykke Li Li's beguiling second album, "Wounded Rhymes," is full of charged contradictions. She's a mediocre singer with a very interesting voice, a fan of classic handmade pop and the ways laptops can serrate it, and a writer obsessed with sex and with sexing up obsession. Greek Theatre, 2700 N. Vermont Ave., L.A. 7:30 p.m. $27.50-$35. greektheatrela.com

BOOKS

Eve Babitz Los Angeles in the '60s and '70s was a wild place, especially in the art world, what with Chris Burden getting shot in the arm and Eve Babitz posing nude at the Marcel Duchamp retrospective at the Pasadena Art Museum. Babitz, the author of several books including the infamous memoir "Eve's Hollywood," will join journalist and art critic Hunter Drohojowska-Philp for a discussion of one of L.A.'s most provocative decades, inspired by Drohojowska-Philp's latest book, "Rebels in Paradise: The Los Angeles Art Scene and the 1960s." Hammer Museum, 10899 Wilshire Blvd. 7 p.m. (310) 443-7000.
