PERFORMANCE*
The Sacred Fools Theatre Company hosts “Ten Tops! An Eclectic Open Performance Event” tonight at 8 pm. Ten performers get seven minutes apiece to do anything they want—from “sketch comedy to dramatic readings, rock & roll to interpretive dance, spoken word poetry to apocryphal mime-ery.” If you’re interested in testing out your own new material there will be signups at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $10. SOCIAL MEDIA DISCUSSION
Social Media Club Los Angeles (SMCLA) hosts a panel discussion on Citizen Journalism tonight at 7 pm at the Mahalo Office in Santa Monica. Speakers include LA Times' David Sarno; Christina Gagnier, partner of Gagnier/Margossian and Realpolitech; and LAist's own Andy Sternberg. The event, moderated by Alexia Tsotsis (the LA Weekly's Lifestyle & Technology), will allow the panelists to discuss how they believe social media has changed the way report and consume news. The event is free to students and SMCLA members, but $10 for nonmembers.
