What’s Happening in Los Angeles
BREAKING THE MODE: CONTEMPORARY FASHION FROM THE
PERMANENT COLLECTION @ LACMA
Fashion is hot nowadays. New York Fashion Week just
happened and Bravo’s hit TV show, “Project Runway”
has everyone inspiring to be their very own Santino Rice. While it
seems that everything fashion seems to only be projecting out from the
East Coast, we in Los Angeles shouldn’t feel left out considering
the works of Jean-Paul Gaultier and Christian Dior will be highlighted
in a new exhibit entitled Breaking The Mode; Contemporary Fashion From
the Permanent Collection, all encased in the permanent location at the
Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Make it work ala Tim Gunn and go, go,
go. LACMA is located at 5905 Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles. For
more information visit www.lacma.org.
LOS ANGELES DODGERS VS. ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS @
After a potential scare from the San Diego Padres
this weekend, just three simple words eased all that pain away: NOMAH,
NOMAH, NOMAH! Sure the four homers in the ninth helped, but it was
Garciaparra’s heroics in the 10th that sealed the deal and once
again led the Dodgers atop the NL West division, with San Diego close
behind them. Lets hope the Dodgers use all that added adrenaline from
early this week and close up the division. First up: the Arizona
Diamondbacks. Dodger Stadium is located at 1000 Elysian Park Avenue in
Los Angeles. For more information visit www.dodgers.com.
RATATAT @ Glasshouse
Ever wondered what it would sound if you had an old
school classic Nintendo system that was really crunked out to the max?
It sounds weird but the beats emanating from the duo Ratatat sounds
exactly like that. Their self titled release brought hip hop beats
mixed with scorching guitars to an electronica genre in need of a kick.
Now back with their sophomore release, aptly named
“Classics,” the boys from Brooklyn (Mike Stroud and Evan
Mast) are set to make everyone on the floor dance. Get ready Pomona.
Tickets are available on www.ticketmaster.com. The Glasshouse is
located at 200 W. Second St., in Pomona. For more information visit http:
DANGEROUS STRANGER @ Bigfoot Lodge
Mom and dad always told us, never talk to
strangers. Bigfoot Lodge in Los Feliz has itself a very own dangerous
stranger, but need not fear, all the strangers will be just like you:
nice, maybe a little bit of hipster in them, but all about dancing. At
Dangerous Stranger at the Bigfoot Lodge, the adorned witness various
different but really bizarre home videos from a man simply named
Spencer the Movie Guy. Spencer is also the DJ so watch and move.
Bigfoot Lodge is located at 3172 Los Feliz Boulevard in Los Angeles.

THE PAUL F. TOMPKINS SHOW @ Largo
Paul F. Tompkins knows how to dress. He dresses
well, (he dresses good) but did I happen to mention that he’s
just plain hysterical. At The Paul F. Tompkins Show at Largo, the very
funnyman will look to make sides split; martinis shake, and old school
comedy fly. Comedy acts, musicians, and very special guests have been
known to pop in from time to time, including Jack Black and former Late
Night with Conan O’Brien sidekick Andy Richter. So who
knows you might be lucky. Largo is located at 432 N. Fairfax
Avenue in Los Angeles. For more information visit www.largo-la.com
ON THE COUCH CARTOONS FROM THE NEW YORKER @
Skirball Cultrual Center
Like it or not, therapist sessions are funny. Maybe
it’s all the many analyst sessions this writer has seen in tons
of Woody Allen films or its just my love for the original Bob Newhart
Show, where some of the most bizarre of sessions faced Dr. Hartley
(Newhart). You know what else is funny? Cartoons. A new exhibit from
the Skirball Center looks at this time honored occupation, with On the
Couch Cartoons from the New Yorker. Over 50 cartoons published in the
venerable magazine are for all eyes to see. And it’s OK, you can
go crazy over the cartoons. The Skirball Cultural Center is located at
2701 North Sepulveda Boulevard in Los Angeles. For more information
CIRQUE DU SOLEIL DELIRIUM @ Staples Center
Holy production values! 540 square feet of
multimedia space, 18 projectors, and live images on floors, screens and

Delirium, the first ever arena show, which will also mark the first
time that lyrics have been added to the already popular instrumental

solo. Staples Center is located at 1111 S. Figueroa Street in Los
Angeles. For more information visit www.cirquedusoleil.com
