Pencil This In: The Silver Lake Chorus Celebrates its First Year, Scott Campbell at Gallery 1988 on Melrose and 'Crack Whore Galore' in Atwater Village
The 25-member Silver Lake Chorus celebrates its one-year anniversary tonight at 7 pm at the Echo Park United Methodist Church. The chorus—who performs choral arrangements of indie tunes—will be performing original material written for them by Beck, Sia, Of Montreal, Aimee Mann, The Bird and the Bee, Tegan and Sara, Zooey Deschanel, and Justin Vernon (Bon Iver). John Gold opens with an acoustic set.
Tonight Gallery1988 (Melrose) opens The Great Showdowns solo show from NY artist Scott Campbell. The exhibition holds more than 200 of his signature Showdown paintings, which pin two of pop culture's most intense rivals against each other. The opening reception is tonight from 7-10 pm.
