12:12 Song @Actual Size Los Angeles (Chinatown)
If you're up and raring to go, and happen to be headed Chinatown way, pop in Actual Size Los Angeles to see the conclusion of a 12-hour-long "improvisatory sound work" that got underway at midnight. Over 40 artists and musicians will be taking part, and the public (some who might still be slumbering) were invited to take par.
