What’s Happening in Los Angeles

Saturday, Dec. 16
A Mulholland Christmas Carol @ Sacred Fools Theatre Co.
Imagine if you will the Roman Polanski masterpiece Chinatown mixed in with the equally classic Charles Dickens story “The Christmas Carol”. Poured out of the literary blender is “A Mulholland Christmas Carol.” The scrooge in this satirical tale is William Mulholland; the DWP engineer seized the water out of the Owen’s Valley to crate the sprawl that is Los Angeles. It will be a night Mr. Mulholland will never forget. Sacred Fools Theatre Co. is located at 660 North Heliotrope Drive in Los Angeles. For more information visit

Sunday, Dec. 17
Me First and the Gimme Gimmes @ The Fonda
We know the popular Los Angeles outfit Camp Freddy that is composed of Dave Navarro and the Cult’s Billy Morrison. But for sheer punk cover rawness look no further than Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, who have covered the likes of Elton John to Styx, and even such traditional songs as Hava Nagila. Like Camp Freddy, the Gimmes are composed of some of the finest in punk rawk like Fat Mike from NOFX and Chris Shiflett who was originally in No Use for A Name and now rocks the flying v with the Foo Fighters.  In support of their new album Love Their Country,  the Gimmes will rock The Fonda with their covers of classic country songs. One hopes that they’ll play their reinterpretation of the Dolly Parton masterpiece “Jolene”
The Fonda is located at 6126 Hollywood Blvd. in Los Angeles. For more information visit

Monday, Dec.18
Hunky Santa @ Beverly Center
Santa Claus never looked like this before. The beard, red coat and bulging belly are gone making way for six-pack of abs, designer Italian boots and a form-fitting top. The Hunky Santa phenomenon has been featured on talk shows and in magazines like the Wall Street Journal. And while this one will definitely not for the kids, it’d be for the young at heart who still enjoy a good photo op with Santa. Beverly Center is located at 8500 Beverly Blvd. in Los Angeles.  For more information visit
