LOS ANGELES CA – Electronic music has been deeply intertwined with automotive culture since its inception, from the futuristic visions of Detroit techno, to Germany’s post-war industrial landscapes and iconic Autobahn that went on to inspire the sounds and pace of Kraftwerk. Los Angeles nightlife powerhouse Stranger Than; seek to uncover this connection through a partnership with Petersen Automotive Museum, bringing the first-ever music programming to the institution’s design-forward rooftop for a series of events beginning July 2.
