A Sweeter Hereafter

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

LAist isn't even really sure why we felt compelled to write about Valentine's Day events, considering that it really isn't much of a holiday at all, unless one revels in the unabashed glut of candy and flowers—in which case, we say live it up.

• Perk up your night with performances by Bright Eyes and Neva Dinova with Jesse Sykes & the Sweet Hereafter tonight at The Orpheum. Tickets are $25 and doors open at 7 PM.

• At the Hotel Cafe, enjoy "Love Songs for The Unloved" featuring Hardcore Dave, Cantinero, Fielding and The Beagles, beginning at 8 PM.

• For a more fanciful take on the "holiday," Ain't It Cool News and the American Cinematheque have joined forces to bring a special sneak preview screening of Constantine to the Egyptian Theatre tonight at 7:30 PM.

• If you have a special someone that you'd like to share the evening with, check out CineSpace's one night only screening of Casablanca, complete with a full five-course meal for you and your sweetie, at 7:30 and 9:30 PM. Tickets are $55.
