Cool off every Friday afternoon this August with rock, jazz, funk, and soul music projected on our big screen. In 1972, Stax Records staged a concert in Los Angeles with Isaac Hayes, Rufus Thomas, the Staple Singers, and other greats of soul and R&B to commemorate the anniversary of the Watts Riots and to celebrate a renewed hope in the future.
