August 18 @ THE GREEK

The poster children for the mono movement are taking over one of the best venues in L.A. to rock out in the way that only they can. Jack and Meg White are a formidable duo, if not a dynamic one. The looped simplicity of Jack’s guitar is complemented by the incredibly basic beats that Meg lays down, her bass drum becoming a punch in your chest for the entire set.
This band has come to the forefront, in the last few years, of what it truly means to be part of the counter culture and successful all at once, earning them the right to be an "It" band. They put on quite a live show and, if nothing else, you get to check out Jack White dressed up as either a pirate or a 1920s’ movie star, depending on how you perceive his absurd outfits.

Catch the White Stripes as they play August 18 at the Greek. For more info, visit

August 19 @ LACMA

While King Tut may be the more popular transcender of death this summer at LACMA, Tim Hawkinson does it with much more pizzazz (and fewer long lines). More obsessed with the entropy of his body than Farrah Fawcett, Hawkinson seeks to understand the fleetingness of life by contorting his image in ways Michael Jackson only dreams of. In his signature piece (but not his Signature piece – we’ll get to that in a moment), Hawkinson covered his body in latex, carefully peeled it away, inflated it, and hung it from LACMA’s ceiling like some naked wraith looking down on the entire exhibit. As to not get lonely, an inflated chicken skin flutters nearby.
Hawkinson’s art lies somewhere between the work of a mad scientist and that of a fluxus virtuoso (still completely unreformed) – but wherever it is, the plane is one of genius. How someone would think of showing the imperishability of life by turning their toenail clippings into a minute bird skeleton, hair into a cracked egg or – look carefully in the corner – a cobweb, makes your mind giggle, but soul appreciate that the body, too, lives on after death.
The exhibition’s best exploration of time, however, is with, as supposedly should be expected, clocks – but unlike anything you’ve seen before. Ingenious in their simplicity, Hawkinson mutates a toothpaste tube, Coke can, manila envelope and hairbrush into clocks, the hands of which are made up of – look closely – the dried toothpaste crust, the can’s tab, the envelope’s brads and, most amazingly, two small pieces of the artist’s hair. Everything is an emblem of time ticking away.
Celebrating life, Hawkinson also reduces himself to a simple machine, in the kinetic sculpture Signature – a turntable on a school desk ceaselessly inscribes the artist’s own signature as a mountain of papers build up around it. I tried to sneak a blank check into the machine for Hawkinson to sign, but was told that’s not what the artist intended. I responded that the whole exhibit reeked of postmodernity, and we can’t ever be sure what the artist intended, but, no, security told me escorting me out, we indeed could.
LACMA is located at 5905 Wilshire Blvd., in Los Angeles. Museum hours: Mon, Tue, Thu noon-8 p.m., Fri noon-9 p.m., Sat and Sun 11 a.m.-8 p.m., closed Wed. Price: adults $9, students 18+ with ID $5, admission is free the second Tuesday of every month and evenings after 5 p.m. For more information, call (323) 857-6000 or visit

A quick note: This is going to be a great show. Though their most recent record has gone mostly unnoticed, the style popularized by the Used is the basis for a lot of the rock we hear today. Bert McCracken’s strained vocals recall Kurt Cobain’s angst, with a dash of the last decade thrown into the mix. The complementary moments of total poppiness and guttural screaming are what make the Used worth checking out.
Arrive early to this show and check out the Street Drum Corps, a group akin to the best drum circle you’ve ever witnessed. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.

Catch The Used perform at Gibson Ampitheatre. For more information, visit


Sunday, August 21


Say what you will about Coldplay: they are formulaic, they are rip-offs of [insert Radiohead, U2, etc.], they put their politics ahead of their music, or whatever insult is popular against the British mega band this week, but there is one thing that is undeniable, Coldplay rocks. With a keen eye to their older records, they treat audiences to selections from their entire catalogue, creating a show that is larger than life in every respect. Last time they rolled through L.A. they blew audiences away with a light show that echoed their epically simple sound – bright and straight-ahead, yet elusively beautiful.
The standout tracks from their latest album, X&Y, will surely make their way onto the set-list as well. The stirringly introspective yet sweeping "Fix You" alone will be worth the price of admission, to hear Chris Martin woefully croon on his inability to repair his lover’s heart once it has been broken. Also, "Talk," a tune that combines the best of Coldplay’s acoustic songwriting style of albums past and their new direction into the world of electronic keyboards, is worth getting up and dancing along to.
All in all, these are shows that people will be talking about for the rest of the summer, so make your way down to Irvine and check out at least one of them.

Catch Coldplay August 21 at the Verizon Wireless Ampithetre. For more information, visit

It might be hard to take Metal Skool seriously, with their dead-on portrayal of a quintessential ‘80s hair metal band. Serious or not, though, they have taken over the Sunset Strip and become the biggest resident act since The Rocky Horror Show.

To Metal Skool, the show is all that matters. This probably grows out of the fact that they don’t play any original songs and haven’t put out any records. That aside, the experience that is a “Metal Skool Monday” at the Roxy is one not to be missed. From naked girls to Guns N’ Roses covers, their shows are always an insane event to behold.
Shows often end up more like parties and less like concerts, where die-hard fans show up trashed and in costume – an experience which includes the crowd in conjunction with Metal Skool’s performance. There are even weekly traditions, such as midget surfing, where a midget crowd-surfs from the stage to the back wall.

Catch Metal Skool at the Key Club August 22. For more info visit

Tuesday, August 23 @ Santa Monica Pier

The popular "Santa Monica Drive-In at the Pier" has returned yet again and, as it is nearly the middle of August, the two-month-long series featuring free films every Tuesday night is really just getting underway. There is a whole month and a half of films left to go and, on Aug. 23, the series will feature a special on-the-pier screening of the hilarious Ben Stiller hit Zoolander.
In the film, which costars Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell and Christine Taylor (Stiller’s real-life wife), the titular dimwitted male model (Stiller) breezes through the fashion world by banking his success on one ridiculous facial expression. Things begin to change, though, when Zoolander gets caught up in a plot involving murder, manipulation and other sorts of mayhem. Stiller also serves as director on the film, for which he created the main character.
Doors for the free event open at 7 p.m. and the screening begins approximately at 8 p.m. Donations are encouraged, with money going to Arts Fighting Cancer’s "Cancer Relief Fund." Refreshments are available for purchase, and comfy folding chairs (or you can bring your own) are available to rent for $5.
The Santa Monica Pier is located two blocks south of Santa Monica Boulevard at the corner of Ocean Avenue and Colorado Boulevard. Screenings are held in the parking lot on the far south side of the pier. Free tickets required for entry are available at all five LAcarGUY locations and Santa Monica Visitors Centers.

August 5 @ The Greek

Going to a ball game is always fun for everyone involved, even those who can't take watching sports on TV. The crowd, the atmosphere, the Dodger Dogs, it's an experience that always gets filed away in the good memories drawer afterwards. Bring your dad and you mitt for any stray fly balls, and you're good to go.

Watch as the Dodgers take on the Colorado Rockies Sunday, August 24 at Dodger Stadium. For more information, visit
