Art Show '96 at Sea Level
We love Echo Park's Sea Level Records for many reasons. It's easy to find parking near the historic Jensen Recreation Center Building in which it's housed, it's small enough so we don't get that overwhelmed "oh shit, what did I come in here to get?" brain erase that happens to us at Amoeba, and they regularly have great in-store performances.
They also aren't afraid to take chances. Tonight they're hosting a visual art exhibition called Art Show '96, which is described as "the 10th Anniversary for a show that never happened." We don't even know what that means. It sounds arty. It also sounds pretty fun though, with DJ's, free booze 'n' snacks, a raffle, and a performance by disco weirdos Faux For Real (warning: MySpace link). We're suckers for an arty raffle, so we just might have to check it out.
