We heard ya, LA. Getting across town is a bee-yotch. But on short notice, it's plain near impossible. You need more of a heads up for events around town than our daily "Pencil This In" column gives you. To help you maximize your social calendar and plan your life, we’d like to present the "LAist Agenda: August." It’s a compilation of happenings for the rest of the month that we think are worth seeing. We'll be adding events to the list, so check back often.

To have your event considered for LAist Agenda, please e-mail us.
