For Independence Day weekend, here are some events that involve hanging out with social activists while listening to good music and wearing cute clothes:

Friday, July 1
Free concert by social activist and good-time band Ozomatli at California Plaza, downtown Los Angeles, part of the Grand Performances series. 8 pm, but it's a good to get there as early as possible; this one will be crowded.

Saturday, July 2, and Sunday, July 3
American Apparel "sweatshop-free" clothing company's Echo Park store, 2111 Sunset Boulevard, will have a barbecue/fashion show between 1 and 7 pm both days, and a gift-with-purchase all weekend.
