Pencil This In: Monday

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

THEATRE*
Little tiny ninjas take to the stage to perform Shakespeare’s Macbeth tonight and tomorrow. These “actors” are the plastic kind found in vending machines by artistic director Dov Weinstein. The action will be presented from a briefcase-sized stage and projected to monitors, so don’t fret about missing the action.

8 pm // Fake Gallery // 4913 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles // $10.

TALK
There’s a panel discussion tonight on the future content of the Internet (and how TV will probably never be the same again). Panelists include Amanda Congdon, Strike.tv, Michael Pilla, among many, many others. There will also be a screening of Tiger Team from TruTV. ***Please note there are only a few spots left, so to confirm your place, check out their Facebook page.
