Silver Lake Cares

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

On my way to dying my hair pink and eating yuca tacos, as apparently all Silver Lake residents do, I saw some work being done on the Solutions! wall. Yes, the same one we reported on today, which had been horribly defaced. Some Silver Lake locals took it upon themselves to bring the mural, which serves as an Elliott Smith shrine, back to its former splendor.

The wall will now be a canvas ready for fan tributes, but can it escape the wrath of untalented taggers? I just hope Plastic God comes back and redoes his illustration.
