LACMA VIA MACHINE PROJECT
Machine Project has left Echo Park and is set up at LACMA today to host several on-site events at the museum. They'll be using all sorts of unexpected spaces to share their version of the museum and its collections, from the elevator to the courtyards. You'll get entangled in a murder mystery, and may happen upon some unusual musical acts. Check out the full guide to their day-long interactive takeover.
You might not be hip to the fact that apparently the Netherlands is where it's at when it comes to interesting new music. Apparently they are home to "an exceptional wealth of up-and-coming innovators who are busy expanding not only the heterogeneity and freedom of contemporary musical content — but also the role of music and concert programming in society." If this gets you humming, head over to REDCAT today for Program II in a 3-Program series spotlighting the Dutch.
STARRING LOS ANGELES
14 short films will hit the screen tonight at 8 at the Echo Park Film Center, all which "use the city of Los Angeles in overtly narrative or thematic roles, thereby allowing the city to serve not only as the setting, but as a protagonist as well" (Flavorpill). It's the LA as Character screening, happening tonight only at 8 p.m.
Other Things to Do: See the Pasadena Wish Trees at their new home after 10 a.m., peruse Silver Lake Art Craft & Vintage @ Silverlake and Glendale boulevards, take the kiddies to see The Trial of Goldilocks @ Westchester Playhouse, shop for a cause at Westfield Works Wonders @ Westfield Santa Anita, or see some funny with Greg Proops @ the Hollywood Improv.
