Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

ART: Today the exhibition "Che Mondo (What a World)" opens at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery. It will feature "hand-made" photographs by local artists including Ursula Brookbank, Joyce Campbell, Gerald Incandela, Marina Pinsky, Richard Ross, Christopher Russell, Julie Shafer, and Susan Silton. The guest curator is Carole Ann Klonarides. The opening is from 2 until 5 pm today, and the photographs will be on display until April 28. The gallery is located at Barnsdall Park at 4800 Hollywood Boulevard. For more information, visit the gallery's website.

THEATRE: REDCAT continues to host the Wooster Group and New York City Players, who will perform "Early Plays", a program comprised of four early works by Eugene O'Neill. Tickets for the 3 p.m. performances start at $25. For more information, visit REDCAT's website.

METAL: If you're more about heavy metal than Oscars, tonight a DJ at the Golden Gopher will be playing 80's metal classical from Motley Crue, WASP, Motorhead, Dio, Guns & Roses, Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Judas Priest and more. The music starts at 10 pm and goes until 2 am. Happy hour goes all night. Well drinks are $5 and it's $2 off everything else. The Golden Gopher is located at 417 W 8th St. in downtown.

We also have a round-up of places to eat and imbibe while watching the Oscars.
