President Barack Obama is making his rounds in Los Angeles Monday and Tuesday, and that can only mean one thing for Angelenos—Obamajam.

He'll be arriving at LAX today to hit up two fundraising events, including the homes of basketball icon Magic Johnson and media proprietor Haim Saban. On Tuesday, Obama will be in Hancock Park early Tuesday morning for a fundraiser at the home of Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman, and then in Glendale for a talk at DreamWorks Animation, according to KABC and NBC Los Angeles.

These are the streets that will be potentially backed-up by Obama traffic:
