It's been a week. From the coronavirus outbreak to the tragic death of Lakers legend Kobe Bryant to a frightening high-rise fire on the Westside and of course the ongoing impeachment trial, you may be ready for a news diet.

We're now off to recover and recharge, but not before we leave you with a few tips to help you get the most out of your weekend.

Here are a few events to get you started:

  • Al Di Là: An Evening of Sound Works by Simone Forti: Dancer, choreographer, artist and writer Forti presents an evening of sound-based pieces spanning 50 years. The works are arranged and performed by Forti and Tashi Wada with Julia Holter, Jessika Kenney and Corey Fogel.
  • AirTalk’s FilmWeek: 2020 Oscar Preview: One of KPCC’s most popular events returns, just in time to help fill out your Oscar pool picks. AirTalk host Larry Mantle and the FilmWeek critics debate and discuss this year’s Oscar contenders — and the films that coulda been contenders.
  • Asian Lunar New Year Festival: Celebrate the Year of the Rat at the museum with dance, music and art from China, Vietnam and Korea. Watch the traditional dragon and lion dances by JC Culture, sample an egg roll then create paper lanterns and art scrolls as you contemplate the diligence and positivity of those born in the Year of the Rat.
