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.

It would be well worth your time—despite the rain and Nile-during-flood-season conditions—to get to the Troubadour tonight and see the Drive By Truckers (also known as the warrior poets of rock 'n' roll) performing with Centro-matic and Runner & The Thermodynamics. Doors open at 8:00 PM and tickets are $15.00.

At 7:00 PM tonight, head for UCLA's Hammer Museum for a reading by award-winning poet J.D. McClatchy, whose most recent book—Hazmat—was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the Los Angeles Times Book Award.
