Grammy Museum shapes up in Jan.

Elvis photos, Ringo Starr appearance set

Beyond the Grammys Jan. 31, January is shaping up to be active for the Grammy Museum, with Elvis, Ringo and revolution.

Beginning today, “Elvis at 21: Photographs by Alfred Wertheimer,” a new Smithsonian traveling exhibition, will debut at the museum, located at L.A. Live, to coincide with what would have been the King’s 75th birthday. A book of Wertheimer’s photos, “Elvis 1956,” released Dec. 1, serves as the exhibition catalog and captures the young Elvis, then recently signed to RCA Victor. The exhibit will run through March 28 before traveling to museums around the country through 2013.

Also on tap for the Grammy Museum will be a rare public appearance by the shy Beatle, as Ringo Starr will appear Jan. 19 on the Grammy Soundstage with museum exec director Robert Santelli for conversation and music. Starr is promoting his latest album, “Y Not” (Hip-O Records/UMe).

Finally, “Soundtrack for a Revolution,” a doc about the civil rights movement told from a musical standpoint, is being screened at the museum on Monday, followed by discussion with the filmmakers.
