What’s Happening in Los Angeles

 Thursday, Jan. 25
Shortbus/Hedwig and the Angry Inch @ New Beverly Cinema
One of the most prolific filmmakers to come out of this early decade has been John Cameron Mitchell. His quirky musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch got audiences in a frenzy, making Mitchell the new poster boy for the indie film movement. Just recently, Mitchell released Shortbus, a poignant/hilarious/incredibly provocative look at sex and the interconnectedness that surrounds it. Double features like this don't come around often. Enjoy. New Beverly Cinema is located 7165 Beverly Blvd. in Los Angeles. For more information visit

Friday, Jan. 26
Of Montreal @ El Rey Theatre
It's going to be a crazy 2007 for frontman Kevin Barnes and his quirky group of rag tag musicians, which comprise the indie pop outfit Of Montreal. While Hissing Fauna, is Barnes' most personal album to date don't expect the doom and gloom of his introspective lyrics to come out on stage. Always known for their sense of theatrics, the group has made this tour their most ambitious tour yet. Expect a ton of costume changes and the most theatrical of theatrical, as Barnes will often sing inside a giant animal or wearing a 10 foot high dress! The El Rey Theatre is located at 5515 Wilshire Blvd. in Los Angeles. For more information visit

Banquet: A Feast For the Senses @ Pacific Asia Museum
Most of our life has been spent sitting down in front of the dinner table. In it, we are connected with our friends and family where stories of life, love, friendships, spirituality weave in and out creating a sense of meaningfulness. In a new exhibit at the Pacific Asia Museum, those ideas spread out in front of the banquet table will be expressed through art via Banquet: A Feast for the Senses. The exhibition will showcase an array of multi media showing the link between food and culture through the means of art.Pacific Asia Museum is located at 46 North Los Robles Ave. in Pasadena. For more information, visit 

Sunday, Jan. 28
Los Angeles Lakers vs. San Antonio Spurs @ Staples Center
So far this season, the Lakers are a perfect 2-0 against the dreaded San Antonio Spurs. We've beaten them at our home court and just recently pulled out a close win against the Western conference heavyweights at their home arena. Like they always say, the third times the charm, and because the third showdown will be once again played under the lights of Staples Center, the luck will most likely be on our side. Staples Center is located at 1111 South Figueroa St in Los Angeles. For more information, visit 

Monday. Jan. 29
UCBT's Monthly Open Mic @ UCB Theatre
Think you’ve got what it takes to be a great comic improviser? Well… the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Hollywood has something for you. During the last Monday night of every month at 11 p.m. the UCB showcases an open microphone show. Ten performance slots are available to sign up and by 11 p.m. you'll have a 1/11 shot to perform your comedic monologue about why “Little Man” is the greatest film in the world. That may or may not be true but as long as it’s funny and all under five minutes then it’s all good. UCB Theatre is located at 5919 Franklin Ave. in Hollywood. For more information, visit

Tuesday, Jan. 30
Channel Zeroe @ ROKBAR
Most of us know Tommy Lee as the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll drummer for '80s heavy metal act Motley Crue. Nowadays, the man can be seen on reality shows and owning bars, most notably ROKBAR in Hollywood. What we don't know is the man's love for hip hop, which was shown during his Methods of Mayhem (you know that “Get Naked” song) and is featured prominently during Channel Zeroe, a Tuesday night ritual at the club. Some of the finest old school, R&B, dub and dance floor fill up the bar. And don't worry none of that rock-rap stuff.
ROKBAR is located at 1710 North Palmas Ave. in Hollywood. For more information, call (323) 461-5600

Wednesday, Jan. 31
Speed-the-Plow @ Geffen Playhouse
Writer David Mamet and plays go together like peanut butter and jelly. A defining artist Mamet has parlayed his craft into the realm of Hollywood but many know and love him from his work on the stage. From American Buffalo to most notably Glengarry Glen Ross, the man can do no wrong. The Geffen Playhouse will present another classic penned by Mamet. Speed-the-Plow tells the story of  studio executive Bobby Gould and the decisions he must make in the breakneck world of Tinsel Town. In this case he must choose between producing a formulaic prison-breakout drama with a big star already attached, or  an obscure mystical novel by an "Eastern sissy writer.” Hollywood is satirized to its utmost by Mamet's ingenious wit. Geffen Playhouse is located at 10866 Le Conte Avenue in Los Angeles. For more information, call 213-480-3232
