The GRAMMY Museum at L.A. Live is the spot for musically-themed documentaries this week, as the venue hosts a film per night as part of the Downtown Film Festival.

Tickets for the shows are on-sale now, but blogdowntown readers have an extra chance to attend with daily giveaways on twitter.

On Wednesday, August 19, is "Still Bill," a look at R&B singer Bill Withers who topped the charts with hits like "Lean On Me." He stopped performing in 1985 and directors Damani Baker and Alex Vlack sought to find out why.

The Montreux Jazz Festival celebrated the 30th anniversary of Concord Records by giving the stage to Latin Jazz artist Poncho Sanchez. "Poncho Sanchez at Monetruex" screens Thursday, August 20).

"Dirty" will be seen Friday, August 21. It's an intimate tribute to Ol’ Dirty Bastard (ODB) "one of the most enigmatic, controversial and tragic figures in Hip-Hop music history."

Interested in winning free tickets? Just start following @blogdowntown on twitter and watch for our daily giveaway tweets. We'll be giving a pair of seats away for each show.
