Get Out: Warhol, Best Coast, Records & Beer, Vintage Wilshire and More
Warhol's Campbell's Soup Cans @MOCA
This installation of Warhol's 32 soup-can paintings opens on the 49th anniversary of the original exhibition of the paintings at Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles--Andy Warhol's first solo exhibition — and pays tribute to the significant role played by the gallery in the development of postwar L.A. art and also to its revered director Irving Blum.
Saturdays Off the 405 @The Getty
Hang out up at the Getty after hours tonight and enjoy a live performance by Best Coast. Dance, mingle, check out the view, and belly up to the (cash) bar. Gallery tours at 6 and 7 p.m. (6-9 p.m. )
Sunset Strip Beer Garden & Record Swap
We got revved about this last week: The ColLAboration Pop-Up Craft Beer Garden and The Sunset Strip Record Swap.

Wilshire Blvd. History Slideshow
LAPL Photo Friends presents a free virtual stroll down 1970s Wilshire Boulevard, as captured on Kodachrome slides by Annie Laskey and her mom Marlene. Over a dozen afternoons in 1978 and 1979, Marlene and Annie walked the entire length of Wilshire Boulevard from downtown to the ocean. Marlene took notes; Annie took pictures. The result was over 1,000 Kodachrome slides documenting L.A.'s iconic street from its great landmarks to its empty lots. Mark Taper Auditorium, Central Library. 2-3 p.m. (Free).
