The Santa Monica Museum of Art hosts artist Allen Ruppersberg and poet Bill Berkson in a conversation about art and literature. Ruppersberg will discuss his book project, The New Five Foot Shelf, while Berkson recites poetry, plays music and screens a new film assembled from 1940s and '50s family movies. The first 20 guests will receive a free copy of Ruppersberg's book, which is not available for purchase. Admission is free, but seating is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. 7 pm.
La Luz de Jesus Gallery hosts a double book signing by Lisa Petrucci and Isabel Samaras for Kickass Cuties - the Art of Lisa Petrucci and On Tender Hooks - the Art of Isabel Samaras, both published by Chronicle Books. The two are known as original "ladies of lowbrow art." The event runs from 6-9 pm. Refreshments will be served.

UCLA Live welcomes Loud and Rich to Royce Hall tonight at 8 pm. Never heard of the duo? Maybe you’ll recognize their solo names: Richard Thompson and Loudon Wainwright III. They’ll perform onstage together and separately, and we know that these singer-songwriters have a lot of material to choose from. Tickets are $48.
