'West Coast, Left Coast' festival

This John Adams-curated fest nobly ignores distinctions between "pop" and "classical" and includes evenings with Dave Alvin and the Airborne Toxic Event, pictured, as well as one celebrating the Beats (with Kurt Elling!). Don't miss the opening event, a collaboration between the Kronos Quartet, electronic duo Matmos, guitarist Mike Einziger of Incubus and the great composer Terry Riley.
