  • Lina in L.A. - Hello Kitty Night at Dodger Stadium
    It's always a purr-fect pairing when Dodger fans collide with Hello Kitty lovers, and last night's home game against the San Diego Padres was no exception. Though fans were given vouchers for the night's free H.K. travel mug, the cat craziness was still in full effect with discounts on Kitty merchandise and fans in feline-inspired gear... and of course lots of blue! Actress Kate Walsh threw out the first pitch and Miss Kitty herself was on hand to pose for pics on the field.

    Brakeless track bicycles will be racing through the streets of downtown Los Angeles this weekend. We know what you're thinking: It's almost everyday that you see the brakeless bikes known as "fixies" (for fixed-gear) bombing down L.A. streets.

  • Three Words: Bacon Cronut Burger

    Relax, Los Angeles. We now have a bacon cronut burger.  This is thanks to chef Marc Elliot and his new restaurant Old School Eatery, which opened this past Tuesday on the very eastern edge of Pasadena. The theme is retro cuisine with clever twists and local ingredients.  Elliot is quite the character...
  • Cannibal Corpse's Frontman Talks About His Nightmares

    The seventh annual Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival goes down Saturday at San Manuel Amphitheater, featuring Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, Asking Alexandria, and others of the extreme music persuasion. None, however, are as extreme as death metal horrorists Cannibal Corpse, who will also be appearing.

  • The Wildest Party in L.A. History 5

    Charlie "Bird" Parker has been called the greatest saxophonist who ever lived, a jazz legend who not only spearheaded the bebop movement but also laid the foundations of modern jazz. He was also a party animal. In 1952, Los Angeles would play host to one of Parker's wildest exploits. The...
  • Boyhood's Crazy Experiment: Shoot a Film Over 12 Years

    "It's the secret films you have to watch out for," Richard Linklater jokes about his new movie, Boyhood, a furtive experiment that he kept quiet for more than a decade. In 2002, he chose a first-grader named Eller Coltrane, the 6-year-old son of two Texas artists; cast Patricia Arquette and...
  • Armenian Power and Henry Rollins: Readers Write

    Hayley Fox's cover story about the FBI's takedown of Armenian Power was a big hit with readers ("The Unusual Suspects," July 4). Yupper writes, "THANK GOD. I was beginning to think even the cops were afraid of these losers. They speed around in their flashy cars, no respect for anyone,...
  • Afternoons: On the Rise, Then Their World Collapsed 2

    At the beginning of 2008, Steven Scott and Brian Canning were on a bit of a roll, having just returned from touring Europe with their indie band, Irving. Over the course of the act’s 10-year career, they also had opened for Arcade Fire, Franz Ferdinand and The Polyphonic Spree, and...
  • Stupid Fucking Bird: Best Chekhov Update in 20 Years

    In Anton Chekhov's play The Seagull, about the theater and its ambiguous relationship to life, neurotic young playwright Konstantin Treplev speaks about the calcification of theater and of the necessity to create "new forms." As Treplev ages, he evolves and devolves into a long-suffering, modestly successful author of quasi-inventive plays...
  • Tasting Menus Are Everywhere in L.A. Right Now

    When Alma opened in June 2012, it served as a beacon for the possibilities of the new food movement. Debuting with little fanfare on the quiet, scuzzy end of Broadway, it was a restaurant where you could taste the promise of one of the city's brightest young chefs, without a...
  • Steve McQueen at MOCA

    The most impressive thing about Drumroll by Steve McQueen, the video artist who became an Oscar-winning director with 12 Years a Slave, is the way in which it gives an almost omniscient view of a big city without making that city seem any less dense and unwieldy than it is...
  • Outfest Preview 2014

    There can be little doubt that we are at (maybe even just past) the tipping point of a global shift in awareness of LGBT issues. Heightened activism related to trans visibility, gay marriage, workplace protection and bullying is taking place around the world. That doesn't mean the news is all...
