Tonight and tomorrow LA Weekly will present two days of events "connecting politics, art, music, comedy, theater, film, food and books. The event includes film screenings, speaker panels, book signings and other activities. LA Weekend 2010 will take place at the beautiful art deco Saban Theater on Wilshire near La Cienega. Here are a few highlights.

Tonight at 7pm the event opens with Amy Alkon, the advice goddess. At 8pm Jill Stewart will moderate "The Bad Boys of Blogging." At 9:15pm the subject (and hopefully a live show) will be "Devils Playground: Comic Book Burlesque." There will be a photo show and book signings simultaneously in the lobby.
