Moving Beyond Cars
Tonight is GOOD's totally car-free party, Moving Beyond Cars, at the Jewel Box in DTLA. GOOD is teamed up with railLA, the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, the Coalition for Clean Air, and de LaB for an event that shows how L.A. can move beyond cars. It is being held at the exhibition LA Beyond Cars: A Global Perspective on Rail and Space which envisions the future of high speed rail in Los Angeles. Horse, hoverboard, or good ol' bus, just arrive "in a way that illustrates an L.A. that's not auto-dependent." RSVP and share your experience on Facebook.
DWP Reform Hearing
Council President Eric Garcetti is holding a series of hearings across Los Angeles for the public to speak out about how best to improve transparency and accountability at the DWP. The first hearing is tonight from 6 pm to 8 pm at the PALS Center, 8721 Wilbur Ave. in Northridge (zip code 91324). The hearing is being held in partnership with Councilmembers Greig Smith and Jan Perry. The goal is to ensure that the DWP puts its customers -- the people of Los Angeles -- first. Speak out!
1967 Spy Movie Double Feature @New Beverly
Two great spy flicks are on screen tonight at the New Beverly. First up at 7:30 p.m. is You Only Live Twice (1967). A favorite of the Bond series, this film was directed by Lewis Gilbert with a screenplay by Roald Dahl, and starring Sean Connery as 007. On the same bill, at 9:50 p.m. is Billion Dollar Brain (1967), which stars Michael Caine, directed by Ken Russell, in the third film adaptation of Len Deighton's Harry Palmer espionage novels following The Ipcress File & Funeral in Berlin.
Hide & Seek - Summer @ The Bandshell
The Bandshell in West Los Angeles will be infused with the music of FIM and Brothers Landau tonight from 6:30- 8:30 p.m as part of Hide & Seek-Summer at the Bandshell. Spend the night under the sky. Eat, dance, play, lay on a blanket, hike and seek...in the name of reclaiming public space in L.A. Free. (Unless you want some eats from the KogiBBQ truck!)
