CITY BEATS with Cutty Flam
12:00 PM DJ Set with Anthony Valadez // 12:15 PM Performance
The monthly City Beats shows are curated by local radio personality Anthony Valadez and present a colorful, sonic snapshot of up-and-coming musicians. Genres include R&B, hip-hop, new jazz, Latin and indie, appealing to the eclectic palette and diverse backgrounds of LA music fans. Valadez opens the show, followed by the City Beats headliner on the plaza outside of North Tower at Wells Fargo Center.
Cutty Flam is a soulful three-piece rock n’ roll band from the San Fernando Valley whose sound is both retro and modern. With a tinge of Spanish language vocals, the group mixes genres to produce their very own signature sound that accurately reflects their Angeleno upbringing. After independently releasing their first album Robot Heart in 2014, the band signed with indie landmark Burger Records and has since played with soul legend Ronnie Spector, King Khan, Hepcat , The Blasters and The Shrines. Cutty Flam’s live shows are packed with immense energy and countless audience members cutting up the dance floor to their rockabilly guitars, ramshackle vocals and irrepressible stage presence.

His latest musical projects include official remixes for David Bowie, Local Natives and Ozomatli in addition to 2 LP releases on Plug Research.
