The DoLab's annual Valentines extravaganza is here again! Lucent L'amour - A Visionary Lovefest takes over the Shrine Expo Hall (and neighboring parking lot) this Saturday the 13th with a multimedia spectacular to stimulate the senses.
A night full of booty-bumpin' beats supplied by the likes of N.A.S.A., Bassnectar, and more will be complemented by the high-flying antics of the Lucent Dossier Experience, large-scale interactive installations, live mural painting, and performances by Fire Groove, The Wandering Marionettes, and Stilt Circus and more.
Now in it's fifth year, Lucent L'amour is prepared for more than 5,000 love-riddled revelers, so get your passes in advance or get there early.
