Summer is getting into full swing, and what better way to celebrate than a night on the town? A hodgepodge of events awaits, dear readers, so get out there and have a good time.

BookSoup on Sunset is hosting Charles Phoenix at 7:00 PM, signing his new book Southern Californialand: Mid-Century Culture in Kodachrome. "His collection of found slides date from the late 1940s through the early 1970s, offering a very personal, if mish-mashed view of American culture. A dazzling follow-up to his first bestseller, Southern California in the '50s: Sun, Fun and Fantasy, Southern Californialand presents 160 perfect slides that capture the technicolor history of our fair state, from Santa Barbara to San Diego."

DKT/MC5 starring surviving MC5 founders Dennis Thompson, Michael Davis and Wayne Kramer, fronted by surprise guest-star vocalists, will be performing tonight at Spaceland. Nebula and The Bellrays will be opening; tickets are $15.00.

The AFI at ArcLight Music Documentary Series presents The Clash: Westway to the World tonight at 8:00 PM.

Using previously unseen live footage spanning the band’s history from the early days to their final shows, Westway to the World delivers the definitive account of one of rock’s legendary acts."
