Ooh, Ooh That Smell 

Thursday, Apr 12 2012
"Harsh Realities Still Remain" are the bywords by which the Kaleidomagorics VII: Quasi-Festival of Quasi-Festivals girds its collective creative loins, spewing out the plume of raw gritty creativity that is the usual spiritu sanctum around The Smell. What to expect from tonight's particular world of wonders: music by Sir Axel Estrada; heavy metal merchants Ides of Gemini, who have their debut LP out next month on hotly touted Neurot Recordings; the Coptic dottiness of musical prestidigitators Lantvrn; and Moab, which might be either the soundtrack to the city in Utah or an acronym for Mother of All Butts. In between the music there are $5 haircuts from Cinco Dollares, the duo of Kiersa Carhart and Brenda Jett Kamt; a custom leather and denim bazaar; an exhibition of art and visuals by Kyle Forrest Burns, Andrew Jason Conte, Martin de Pedro, Ruairiadh O'Connell, Travis Wyche; and those ever-popular "yummy" vegan baked goods from the culinary cabal of Maneesh Madahar and Michelle Marquis. The Smell, 247 S. Main St.; downtown Los Angeles; Sat., Apr. 14, 8 p.m., $5. (213) 625-4325, thesmell.org.
Sat., April 14, 8 p.m., 2012
