Get Out: Sunday
DO BRUNCH, AMERICANA STYLE: And no, we don't mean that Vegas-in-Glendale shopping monstrosity! But if there's not enough rock-n-roll in your weekend you can fix that fast (and feed your face) at Safari Sam's Brunch Americana (Noon-4) which is a no-cover brunch with live performances. For your listening pleasure, Brunch Americana features bands who play Rockabilly, Country, Roots, Western Swing, Hillbilly,Bluegrass & Folk. All of which could potentially go pretty well with bacon.
SEE A SEW-N-SHOW: Royal/T and eenie meenie records are putting on a spontaneous show based on instant fashion and live music courtesy of the innovators known as Jean Paul Yamamoto, the art-rock band. This afternoon you can check out "Instant Couture-Improvised Sewing" and maybe--for $50--nab one of the 12 one-of-a-kind tshirts their Lun*na Menoh (designer of Royal/T's maid outfits among other things) will be making on the spot. Hanging out and watching the fun, though, is free. (For details go to Royal/T's site and click on "news".)
GET ANIME-TED: It's the last day of the annual Anime Expo going on Downtown at the LA Convention Center. It's never too late to put on that character costume hidden in your closet and to dive into the fray of fans of manga and movies. (Even if you're not into anime and you just want to people-watch, hanging around the Convention Center could prove to be very interesting...).
Other things to do: Take advantage of the Long Beach Aquarium's late hours on Sundays, catch the last LA performance of A Chorus Line, get your lit on at one of two late-afternoon readings, eat some soul food, sample some seafood, or be a Guitar Hero.
