Kicking Off Movember with a Crop of Magnificent Moustaches
November is a time when leaves turn vibrant orange, the air is crisp and smells of crackling fires, and threadlike stubble starts to fill in the once-barren upper lips of men everywhere. Yes, I’m talking about Movember—the worldwide annual charity event that inspires men to grow their finest displays of moustachery in order to raise […]
Tomorrow: Downtown Summer Party at Down & Out and Coronados
Take a break from watching the Olympics, and catch some amazing bands play in Downtown LA for FREE. I’m DJing at Down & Out after 5 pm.
Two Sticks and Extra Chocolate? Is It Mardi Gras?
If you lived for Gob’s magic tricks, Lindsey’s self-absorbed attempts at charity work, Buster’s secret affair with Lucille Austero, George-Michael’s not-so-secret crush on his cousin and never-nude Tobias’ stint as a Blue Man, you should check out Gallery 1988’s latest art opening, “There’s Always Money In the Banana Stand,” a tribute to Arrested Development. It’s […]
Tomorrow: Summer Kick-Off Party at Down and Out
Put on your banana hammock and apply your SPF liberally: Summer’s officially here! And there’s no better way to celebrate (or mourn–if you’re a Debbie Downer) than to get your indie on at Down & Out. Catch four LA artists/bands, including Johanna Chase, The Never Never, Peachy Keene and Lovers Drugs for nothing more than the lint in your pocket. I’m DJ-ing […]
Free Burgers On Monday
To celebrate National Burger Day on May 28th, Burger Lounge in West Hollywood is giving away free tasty burgers from 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Visitors can choose from salmon, turkey, quinoa veggie and the Lounge Burger, which is made from 100% grass-fed beef. With a thick, juicy deal like this, there’s need to settle for […]
Mortified LA: ‘I Wanted To Crawl Into a Hole and Die…’
Admit it. In junior high, you scrawled prose on the pages of spiral-bound notebooks to divulge your innermost thoughts: the longing for your crush, the fact that you hated school…or, if you were me—bad, original rock lyrics that made Poison ’s seem profound. To 12-year-old you, these words made perfect sense. But if you were to […]
Hipsters, Are You Ready?
Here it is–a “leak” of the 2013 Coachella line-up, according to Funny or Die. (Personally, I think 138 miles is bit of a haul for Regrettable Decisions.)
Tomorrow: The Corners Festival in Downtown L.A.
Hit the corner of Spring and 5th Street tomorrow for the motherload of music, theater and poetry. A few bars and book stores around the Alexandria Hotel are hosting. I’m DJ-ing at The Down and Out Bar from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., between band sets. If The Down and Out sounds familiar, it’s the […]
TOMORROW NIGHT @ Mandrake: The Sunday Brownout
I’m DJ-ing at Mandrake tomorrow night 4/22 from 9 pm to midnight. We’re talking the motherload of good music–Tune-Yards, Snoop & Dr. Dre, Black Lips, Atmosphere, Bloc Party, Foxy Shazam, The Roots and much, much more. It’s sort of like Coachella. Only FREE. With less hipsters. And no Tupac hologram. Go, and prepare to shake […]
It’s Time to Get Art with Mike D
Starting Friday, April 20, MOCA’s Geffen Contemporary is blowing minds and multiple senses with 17 days of the best in contemporary design, food, film, music and culture—compiled through the vision of Mike D. Yes, that Mike D. It’s all part of TRANSMISSION LA: AV CLUB—an exhibition that shows how audio and visual art forms feed off of each […]
