Get Out: Wild Up, LA Street Food Fest & Budd Boetticher
EXPERIMENTAL: Craving some Ornette Coleman, Beach Boys, Katy Perry and Magnetic Fields all in one night? You're in luck. Today at 3 pm the L.A.-based 24-member experimental ensemble wild Up will begin its residency at the Hammer Museum (the museum's first orchestra residency) with "WEST" a concert that explores "the west coast’s vast sonic landscape through classical music, jazz, noise, indie-rock, and the avant garde," according to the event website. And, yes, the music of all the aforementioned artists is expected to make an appearance.
FOOD: Want to try all of L.A.'s best street food all in one go? Head over to the Rose Bowl today where you can try all the food you'd like for one price. There are a few VIP tix left at $65 if you want to get in at 3 pm. Or you can pay $45 to graze on everything in sight between 5 and 9 pm. There will be a selection of 100 street food vendors repping the best in L.A. (and Baja): gourmet food trucks, old school street carts and celebrity chef stands. (There will be tequila, beer and wine, too.) For more information, head over to the website.
WESTERN: Get your cowboy hat and spurs out. The UCLA Film & Television Archive will continue its "Ride Lonesome: The Films of Budd Boetticher" series tonight with two of his most acclaimed films "Ride Lonesome" (1959) and "Comanche Station" (1960), both starring Randolph Scott. Tomorrow, come back and see the Archive-restored "Bullfighter and the Lady" (1951), followed by "My Kingdom for..." (1985). The series runs through Sunday, August 12.
