It’s that time of the month, again: Hear NoHo, an evening of exploring the arts and new music scene in North Hollywood happens tonight from 6:30-11:30 pm at various galleries and locales. Listen to artists like: Melanie Silos, Alex Rhodes, Victoria Clemmons, Matthew Jordan, Drew Broadrick, John Daversa, Quiroga, The Twilight Girls and the Gene Butler Band. $10 for an all-access wristband and dinner/drink discounts at participating restaurants. Tickets must be picked up at the booth (Lankershim and Magnolia). FILM
Folk minstrel and film buff Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy curates a double feature at the Cinefamily / Silent Movie Theater tonight at 8 pm. His “Ladies Night” features Nicholas Ray's A Woman's Secret (1949), with Maureen O'Hara as a singing teacher blamed for the shooting of her smarmy protégé. The film is followed by Wim Wenders' Alice In The Cities (1974), German new wave film about a reporter who helps a little girl find her grandmother - “a woman whose name and address she doesn't remember, and whose house can only be identified by a single photo of an unmarked front door.” NOTE: Bonnie 'Prince' Billy will not be performing a live set during the evening's show. Tickets $12.

Tonight at 7 pm author Sasha Abramsky presents and signs Inside Obama’s Brain at Book Soup. Abramsky interviewed nearly 100 of Obama's “current and former friends, colleagues, classmates, teachers, staff, mentors, basketball buddies, fellow Chicago activists, media consultants, editors, and even his next-door neighbors from Hyde Park. These people each know a part of Obama's life and career, which the author blends the pieces into a uniquely detailed analysis.”

Dakota Lounge in Santa Monica is holding a salsa night tonight with lessons given by Cristian Oviedo and a live band. No cover with meal purchase, but $10 without. Lessons begin at 8:30 pm and the show starts at 10 pm.

Machine Project artist Emily Lacy performs at LACMA throughout the month, creating “meditative, improvised sound works blending folk and electronic influences and utilizing an intricate colony of delay pedals and amplifiers.” Her “Temples of the Mind” performance happens from 3-8 pm in the Pavilion for Japanese Art and in a mobile “Hermit’s Cabin” located on the Plaza. The performance is free.

It’s seems like just yesterday we watched the cast from How I Met Your Mother talk about their new show in front of a not quite-filled Paley Center audience. Now they’re back to celebrate their 100 episode, and the event is sold out. It starts at 6:30 pm for those of you out there with tickets.
