The secret policeman's Arthur Ball
Arthur Magazine and the Spaceland folks — the people who brought us ArthurFest at summer's end — are presenting a winter fete. Tickets have just gone on sale for Arthur Ball, which will feature documentary films, speakers and of course dozens of live performances by the multiculti progressive psychedelic likes of Society of Rockets, Indian Jewelry, Afrobeatdown and Winter Flowers.
There won't be any police there, that we know of. The title just made us think of this old Amnesty International benefit concert/movie/record. Although with the way the NSA has been acting lately, who knows.
It'll be two whole days, February 25-26. The best part? It's inside, at the Echo (now EchoPlex) in Echo Park. Because these guys know that sometimes in winter, it rains.
