What’s Happening in Los Angeles

 Thursday, May 11
Pulling licks and tricks from melodic pop and ska, these guys aren't as new as they appear: They've been at it for 14 years. So what's new here? On their latest release the band moves seamlessly from brutal hardcore to bouncy ska to frenetic punk rock while tackling subjects such as poor young voter turn-out and youth apathy in the wake of the 2004 presidential election. The Troubadour is located at 9081 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood.  For more info, visit

IT’S ALIVE @ The Academy Gallery
If you love the cuddly, creepy or just plain creative characters in films like Star Wars , Beetlejuice or Spider-Man 2 , then you'll definitely appreciate – and be entertained by – a brand new exhibition at the Academy Gallery.Entitled “It's Alive,” the exhibition serves to shine light upon the various advances in animatronics in film over the years. The Academy is located at 8949 Wilshire Blvd. in Beverly Hills. For more information, visit

KROQ Weenie Roast @ Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre
How long has it been since the Red Hot Chili Peppers played a big L.A. show? It’s been a while, hasn’t it? If ever there was a way to make a grand entrance back into the public consciousness though, it would indeed be with the biggest radio concert out there that doesn’t feature 50 Cent on the lineup. One thing to KROQ’s credit is that they always know how to pull a headliner to make the $60-plus ticket price worthwhile with this year being no different. Other performers include: AFI, Dashboard Confessional, Panic! at the Disco, Taking Back Sunday, Angels and Airwaves, Rob Zombie, H.I.M., Matisyahu and more... For more info, visit

MEET THE GRUNION @ Cabrillo Beach
What better excuse could you think of to sit on Southern California’s sandy shore at night with some friends than to be at a “grunion run?” With excuses like this no wonder many people think that grunion runs are some kind of “snipe hunt” or our own version of the “submarine races!” But it does happen, as probably millions of people have witnessed, these small fish (to 7.5”) wash themselves up on the beach 3-4 nights after the new and full moon (syzygy tide conditions) through August. Meeting point 3720 Stephen White Dr., San Pedro 90731. For more info, visit

ARMONDO SHOW @ Improv Olympic West
Seasoned Improv Olympic veterans each sprinkle their own brand of off-the-wall spontaneity into this improvised show. Beginning with a single audience suggestion, a guest star (often a celebrated comedian, actor or writer) spins a series of off-the-cuff monologues that inspire improvised scenes from the cast, that in turn inspire additional monologues. Sound chaotic? Doesn't matter. Even if you aren't sure where they're going next, you'll enjoy the journey the talented company takes you on. Improv Olympic West is located at 6636 Hollywood Blvd.,Los Angeles.  For more info,  visit

RISE AGAINST @ The Troubadour
By far one of the hardest working and hardest rocking bands in punk these days, Rise Against earned all the mainstream success it got with its last album, Siren Song of the Counter Culture, and at the same it wasn’t nearly as much as it deserved.
Frontman Tim McIlrath is a true artist when it comes to conveying his desired emotion vocally, regardless of whether it’s to a fast or slow beat. The band will have you sweating, jumping and fist-pumping until you can’t do it anymore, and after seeing them live, you’ll agree that you wouldn’t have it any other way.  The Troubadour is located at 9081 Santa Monica Blvd, Hollywood.  For more info, visit

EPOXIES @ The Knitting Factory
Since Tsunami Bomb broke up not so long ago (Such a bummer. Seriously!), there’s been a bit of a void in the “queen of punk rock” position after Agent M’s untimely departure. Since the Distillers aren’t doing a whole lot right now, it looks like the Epoxies are stepping up to the plate. Frontwoman Roxy Epoxy’s stylized monotone is definitely not like any of the other member of the fairer gender club to grace punk rock in the last few years and her band’s synth-y backing adds a much more fun dimension to their sometimes out there stage persona, with both equating to the Epoxies being a band worth giving a shot.  The Knitting Factory is located at 7021 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood.  For more info, visit
