Kid Infinity 3-D Show

Using technology originally intended for Michael Jackson’s farewell tour, L.A. electro-punk/hip-hop duo Kid Infinity ( presents a 3-D concert at the Alexandria Hotel on Feb. 5. This isn’t 3-D like you’ve experienced it before; this is a fully immersive stage show where the band performs in front of a screen and is able to build a virtual stage around themselves and the audience.

The animations are customized to the music and objects such as cubes pulsate, spin next to you, float above you and come at you to the tempo of the music. This type of 3-D show has never before been presented in a concert environment. The 87 Stick Up Kids and Captain Ahab open the show with non-3-D performances.

Slash Horror-fied

Iconic Grammy-winning rock guitarist Slash has partnered with Michael Williams and Rob Eric of Scout Productions to form Slasher Films with the intent of making low-to-medium budget original character-driven horror films reminiscent of the visionary horror fare of the late 1970s and ’80s.

“I’m a lifelong horror movie fan and horror movie critic,” says Slash. “I’m from a generation that appreciates the great horror movies of the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s that really scared the hell out of you.”

With that in mind, Slasher Films plans to focus on supernatural, psychological thrillers and terrifying horror as they begin producing one or two movies a year starting this year. In the meantime, Slash, who’s scheduled to be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this year, is on tour as a solo act and with Ozzy Osbourne.
