Bring The Noise

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Tuesday brings all you happy LAists a little hip hop, a little country, a little rock, a little pop and a lot of conversation. It all sounds good, so choose wisely.

Rapper/activist Chuck D of Public Enemy and comedian/activist Margaret Cho come together tonight at 7:00 PM for a Hammer Forum conversation. Held at UCLA's Hammer Museum, this series of events covers current social and political issues during lectures, conversations, performances and panel discussions. LAist hasn't heard Margaret Cho in action but—being acquainted with Chuck D's writings—would assume this is going to be an interesting and entertaining evening. Admission is free and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis so arrive early.

Indie hip hop is the order of the night at The Echo. Free Moral Agents, side project of Isaiah "Ikey" Owens of The Mars Volta, are performing with Busdriver and DJ Nobody. Doors open at 8:00 PM and tickets are $5.00.
