VISUAL: Artist and activist Sandra de la Loza will be at LACMA today to discuss the role of Chicano culture (and Chicano counterculture) in the Los Angeles art scene. She'll be joined by Louie Perez of East L.A.-based Los Lobos and Tomas Carrasco of the political satire group Chicano Secret Service. The talk starts at 1pm in the Bing Theater. While you're there, you can check out de la Loza's LACMA exhibition Mural Remix. For more information on the talk, visit the LACMA website or the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center.

LITERARY: Tonight "The Five Points Readings" will be held at Workspace in Lincoln Heights at 6:30pm. Some of the local authors featured will be Travis Diehl, Alex Kitnick, and Rachel Kushner. Workspace is located 2601 Pasadena Avenue. For more information about the event and authors visit the event's website.

MUSICAL: The Los Angeles Master Chorale pairs two Bach motets (Singet dem Herrn ein neues Lied and Fürchte dich nicht) with two contemporary works influenced by the Baroque composer at Walt Disney Concert Hall tonight at 7pm. The contemporary works include David Lang's Pulitzer Prize-winning "the little match girl passion," which is based on the Hans Christian Andersen story, and the U.S. premiere of James Newton’s jazz-tinged Mass, flavored by Charles Mingus, Messiaen and Bach.
