Silver Lake Art & Craft Vintage Flea Market
This is the last weekend to catch them at their current set-up at the CitiBank at 2450 Glendale Blvd.(cross st. Silverlake Blvd). Head over between 9-5 today to score some great goodies and support local business. They promise to reveal their new location next week, and will be offering "Better hours and a much BIGGER location that is in the HEART of Silver Lake." Jamaica Farewell
Playwright-actress Debra Enhhardt’s critically acclaimed one-woman show Jamaica Farewell has arrived in Los Angeles, and is being presented by the Jamaica Cultural Alliance at the Santa Monica Playhouse for a six-week run (closing May 3rd). The show is based on her own life, and Ehrhardt tells the journey she took to escape revolution-torn Jamaica in the 1970s. The show has been in several world cities and won much acclaim for the Kingston-born performer and scribe, who has previously done two one woman shows, Mango and Invisible Chairs. There are two Sunday performances--3 and 7 p.m. Make reservations online.
The Brand Library Music Series
Put a little culture into your weekend for the bargain price of absolutely free. Head to Glendale's historic Brand Library to see the Vientos Trio with Rose Chen, piano. This program features the music of Jenni Brandon, Sandor Veress, Alexandre Tansman, Francis Poulenc, and Jennifer Stevenson. The performance is at 3 p.m. More on the Music Series here.
KSCR's Music & Art Fest
KSCR (1560 AM), is the indie radio station based out of USC, and today they are having a music and art festival. From 4-11 this afternoon, head down to the USC Campus and find Founders Park; not only is the event free, but so are the meters. While you're there, check out the art, listen to some great music (yOya and Avi Buffalo, Blank Blue, Tijuana Panthers, Mika Miko, The Happy Hollows, and Crystal Antlers), and grab some grub.
