Freely accessible local news is vital. Please power our reporters and help keep us independent with a donation today.

CRAFT: Today is the second day of the Echo Park Craft Fair. This is a chance to check out handcrafted items from locals. It takes place at 821 East 3rd Street (which, yes, is in downtown not Echo Park) from noon until 6 pm. For more information about vendors, visit the fair's website.

CULT: Ever wonder what it was like to a be in a 1970s cult? Cinefamily is bringing you, literally, a taste of what it might have been like. This week the cinematheque is serving food that was once prepared by The Source Family Restaurant to coincide with the premiere of the documentary based on the group. You can also participate in some of the "foundational occult rituals," including Star Exercise and the Pineal Wave at 3 pm. Electricity Aquarian, an author and founder of, has been practicing this rituals daily for forty years. There is a $10 donation, and the event is first-come, first-served. There are screenings of the documentary starting at 2:15 pm at Cinefamily, but you can also catch it at Laemmle Theaters around town.

LITERATURE: Do you enjoy fiction, spoken word and drinking? Head over to The Federal Bar in North Hollywood for the New Short Fiction Series' 10th Annual Emerging Voices Group Show. Spoken word artist Sally Shore and a cast of actors will perform works written by a group of writers flying under the radar (for now). Doors open at 6:30 pm, and there will be music. Performances begin at 7 pm. Tickets are $15, and you can buy them here. For more information, visit the event's website.
