Flanked by sweeping panoramic views and a disparate quality of modernist coolness, the Getty Center welcomed a show (as part of the art museum’s Saturday’s Off The 405 series.) from 15-year art-rock veterans of the burgeoning Brooklyn scene, Les Savy Fav.

The quintet, led by the frolicking bearded and bald Tim Harrington, brought their tunes to the early evening crowd. Playing known standouts like “Patty Lee” and “The Sweat Descends,” alongside a few new numbers from their upcoming long-player, the band that has only released two albums in the last decade, played a ferocious and memorable set that featured fountain diving, wall climbing and light swinging from front man Harrington.

While in LA, the band also stopped off at the Echoplex and played a set with We Barbarians and LA Ghost. Expect their new record sometime soon being released (no doubt) via Frenchkiss.

Upcoming acts scheduled for the Saturdays off the 405 series include Mayer Hawthorne, Dawes and The Antlers. All events are free.
