GET YOUR GROOVE ON AT THE GETTY
The Getty's Sounds of L.A. free weekend concert series is on tonight featuring the groundbreaking work of clarinet and mandolin master Andy Statman, an artist who has been skillfully integrating klezmer, bluegrass, and jazz for over 30 years. Head up the hill this evening to enjoy the Getty's grounds and collections, and then plan to stay for the show, which starts at 7:30 and will take place in the Harold M. Williams Auditorium. As usual, admission to the Getty is free but reservations are required--you can reserve by phone at 310-440-7300 or do it online.
GET YOUR 1974 ON
All day at Buffalo Exchange locations around the country they'll be celebrating the store's 35th birthday.

Check online which of the 3 Los Angeles locations is nearest you and their hours of operation.
Tonight from 7-10 at Echo Park's Hope Gallery take part in the opening of Born to Cry, which is Aaron Rose's first solo exhibition since 1992. Rose paints in a style influenced by free-hand signage art on functional objects including painted briefcases, suitcases, guitars, a table, a chair, a record player, a marching band bass drum, lamps, a ceramic skull, and some surprises. Rose is an artist, writer, director and independent curator living in Los Angeles.

Later, there's the Weekend Tasting at Rosso Wine Shop in Glendale (5-8 p.m.) where for $10.00 you can taste three unique wines picked to suit a weekly theme.
GET ART WALKED, MIRACLE MILE STYLE
Following the Miracle Mile Art walk there's an after party featuring an installation of the works of Joe Vaux, who will be in attendance to mix, mingle, and discuss his work. There will also be an open bar provided by Transhusion; it's a new energy drink, whose logo and art work was designed by Shepard Fairey, and you can check out the free mixed drinks they're serving up. It's happening at Santa La Brea, one of the local eateries featured last year on Kitchen Nightmares, and it's from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Other Things To Do: See a movie, scope out art that's about women + cars, get outside and enjoy the SoCal sunshine, chow down on the cheap at the Koreatown Galleria Food Court, or stock up on 90s style sports-wear.
