It's pretty quiet around the city since many of us are cuing up the grills for later today, but there are still a few events happening around the city...if you know where to look:

JAZZ*: As mentioned earlier, the Angel City Jazz Festival takes place at Barnsdall Art Park today until 10:30 pm. The show features all styles of jazz and from around the world on various stages, including musicians like Motoko Honda, Elliott Sharp, Wayne Horvitz and the Arthur Blythe Quintet.
