Music: Serge Gainsbourg tribute


Hollywood Bowl Orchestra and special guests at the Bowl.

Is there a musician as cool as Serge Gainsbourg was? If your criteria are making endlessly inventive orchestral pop while keeping a stable of France's most beautiful muses at your beck and call (and fathering actress Charlotte), then no, there isn't. At this tribute show, artists including Beck, Sean Lennon, Zola Jesus and members of Beach House and Grizzly Bear tackle the composer's catalog with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, with special guest conductor and former frequent Gainsbourg collaborator Jean-Claude Vannier. Hollywood Bowl, 2301 N. Highland Ave., L.A. 7 p.m. Sun. $17.50-$144.
