Calendar of Events in Los Angeles

Tuesday, July 29
Boston, Cheap Trick
Tue., July 29, 8 p.m.
More than three-quarters of Boston's 31 million album sales are for their 1976 eponymous debut and its '78 follow-up, Don't Look Back. So gargantuan were these creations that the band, built around founding guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Tom Scholz, remains an arena-filling radio staple, despite releasing only four full-lengths since. Boston's secret is Read more about this event
The Miguel Atwood-Ferguson Large Ensemble
Tue., July 29, 9 p.m.
Violaist Miguel Atwood-Ferguson has developed a reputation for being one of L.A.'s most adventurous young composers, finding himself involved in film and television projects on larger and larger scales. His own music is just as challenging, as he often creates large ensembles that perform chamber, jazz and Latin hybrid works. Read more about this event
This Show Will Require Dinosaurs
Tue., July 29, 7 p.m.
If you've ever sat at a Starbucks — or on the sofa — and struggled with writer's block, comedian and screenwriter C.W. Neill feels your pain. Coffee shops are the refuge of the half-assed, who go there to do work only to get sidetracked updating this and tweeting that. Except Read more about this event
Wednesday, July 30
Aerosmith, Slash
Wed., July 30, 7:30 p.m.
When Aerosmith released "Seasons of Wither" in 1974, the power ballad was distinguished by its elegantly chilling arpeggios and singer Steven Tyler's bittersweet evocation of a Massachusetts winter and the end of a love affair. But Aerosmith's own season of wither has been going on for decades now. The Boston Read more about this event
Route 66: The Road and the Romance
Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Jan. 4
The open road and its seemingly infinite, flat expanses are irresistible to lead-footed dreamers — for about five hours. Nearly 2,500 miles long, Route 66 was the main cross-country route between Chicago and Los Angeles and boasted hundreds of opportunities to answer the neon sirens' call, or maybe just move Read more about this event
Eric Liu
If there is one thing Bob Beckel and the folks over at Fox News have helped everyone to learn in the last few weeks, it's that the phrase "Chinaman" shouldn't be tossed around too freely. Aside from millionaire Jeffrey Lebowski, in fact, it's hard to believe anybody would use that Read more about this event
Thursday, July 31
DJ Marques Wyatt, DJ Doc Martin
Thu., July 31, 6:30 p.m.
For the last five years, KCRW has been making Los Angeles' cool summer evenings even cooler with its Summer Nights series in various outdoor spaces throughout the city. As part of that series, City of Angels native son Marques Wyatt shepherds summer 2014's final Made in L.A. evening at the Read more about this event
John Altoon
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through Sept. 14
In stories that still circulate about dark-haired, distinctive-looking John Altoon, who died too young in 1969, he tells students that they should go give Hiroshima a call, because things in real life are bigger and darker than learning to draw. Or, when French wunderkind Yves Klein visits L.A. and says Read more about this event
Omar Souleyman
Thu., July 31, 7 p.m.
When Syrian techno star Omar Souleyman began playing his hyper shaabi street sound at weddings in his home region of Jazeera, locals were jazzed — and word soon spread to the West, where he became a YouTube sensation. A frantic flash of traditional dance-party tunes, electro beats and slang-filled poeticisms Read more about this event
Friday, August 1
Arcade Fire
Fri., Aug. 1, 7 p.m. and Sat., Aug. 2, 7 p.m.
These days when you think Arcade Fire, it's all mirrors and Reflektors. But Arcade Fire wasn't always confetti and dancing. Thirteen years after forming, the Canadian art rockers are pioneers of 21st-century indie music, traversing themes of organized religion, coming of age, hope, nostalgia and death. Their sound is known Read more about this event
Bellydance Evolution: Alice in Wonderland
Fri., Aug. 1, 8:30 p.m.
The setup certainly sounds like someone went down a certain rabbit hole or nibbled the wrong mushroom: Combine belly dance with street dance to retell the story of Alice in Wonderland. Yet mixing Middle Eastern dance with contemporary dance forms is exactly what the 20-member Bellydance Evolution and choreographer Jillina Read more about this event
Echo & the Bunnymen
Fri., Aug. 1, 8 p.m.
Though dancey and dirty-rockin' with equal aplomb, exquisitely melodic and highly seductive onstage, Echo the Bunnymen never quite enjoyed the success of fellow '80s new-wave counterparts Duran Duran or Depeche Mode. Still, their fan base is nearly as passionate. Influential to everyone from Radiohead to Coldplay to Courtney Love, leader Read more about this event
Saturday, August 2
The Psycho Sisters
Sat., Aug. 2, 8 p.m.
Susan Cowsill and Vicki Peterson virtually grew up in public with their first bands, The Cowsills and The Bangles, respectively. But when they put their heads together as The Psycho Sisters, they reveal much more rocking and countrified range than they usually get to demonstrate in their better-known pop groups. Read more about this event
Jay Z, Beyonce
Sat., Aug. 2, 8 p.m. and Sun., Aug. 3, 8 p.m.
As the reigning first couple of hip-hop and a symbol of coolness and swagger, the Carters bring their rolling extravaganza into Los Angeles as a carefully if not perfectly polished machine. The tour comes a little more than a year after Jay Z played the same stadium with Justin Timberlake, Read more about this event
International Surf Festival
Sat., Aug. 2, 6:45 a.m. and Sun., Aug. 3, 7:30 a.m.
In its 53 years of existence, has the International Surf Festival ever been held in a "state of emergency"? We're not sure, but after a swimmer was attacked by a great white shark on Fourth of July weekend (those sharks have such a Hollywood sense of timing), the city of Read more about this event
Burger a-Go-Go
Sat., Aug. 2, 4 p.m.
Burger Records, the prolific, Fullerton-based label and store, continues to release so many CDs, LPs and even cassettes (!) that this daylong festival can barely contain the numerous garage, punk, indie and power-pop bands on its roster. The bill is headlined by Best Coast, with their summer-centric, effusively sunny pop Read more about this event
Hard Summer Music Festival 2014
Sat., Aug. 2, 12 p.m.
HARD Summer moves out of downtown L.A. to Whittier Narrows Recreational Area for its seventh go-around. With 100 acres of space, the two-day event is more than triple the size of its previous location at Los Angeles State Historic Park. Even so, the 100-artist happening is sold out. Bringing the Read more about this event
Sketch Fighter
Sat., Aug. 2, 8 p.m.
It's a comic book battle that even the Avengers couldn't handle. Tonight, four comic book artists and their stand-up comedian sidekicks will duke it out for sketchpad supremacy inside Manhattan Beach shop/hangout the Comic Bug. Presented by Comics and Comics, a group of comedians who perform geek-friendly stand-up at conventions Read more about this event
Sunday, August 3
Cambodian Music Festival
Sun., Aug. 3, 3 p.m.
Cambodian culture continues to flourish despite the genocidal campaign by the Khmer Rouge government against its own people in the 1970s. That dark era overshadowed a long, rich tradition of music and dance in the Southeast Asian country, and this afternoon's festival reveals some of the vibrant variety of styles Read more about this event
homeLA:studio // The Brewery
Sun., Aug. 3, 6 p.m., Sun., Aug. 10, 6 p.m. and Sun., Aug. 17, 6 p.m.
One of the most exciting elements of today's contemporary-dance and movement-based art scene is the way independent artists produce site-specific works in nontraditional spaces (airports, laundromats, cafés, subway cars, even empty jails), often for small audiences. The good people of homeLA take this trend to an intimate level, producing dance Read more about this event
Griffith Park Free Shakespeare Festival 2014
Thursdays-Sundays, 7 p.m. Continues through Aug. 31
While not quite dazzling, director Melissa Chalsma's staging of Shakespeare's comedy Twelfth Night, about a tangled love triangle, is funny, festive and true to the Bard's spirit. The plot turns around Viola (Kalean Ung), a feisty young woman impersonating a man; her employer, Count Orsino (Ryan Vincent Anderson), whom she Read more about this event
Monday, August 4
Mondays, 10 p.m.
After five years of hosting stand-up show "Keep It Clean" at Public House, comedian JC Coccoli decided it was time to revamp the Monday late-night concept by booking comedians not just from L.A. but also from around the country and overseas. "Being around L.A. for so long, I see the Read more about this event
Baker to Baker
Mon., Aug. 4, 6:30 p.m.
Breaking bread among good company is a centuries-old tradition, so it's only fitting that the grain enthusiasts at Common Grains Collective are hosting a "Baker to Baker" discussion at Vibiana — originally the L.A. Archdiocese's first Roman Catholic cathedral. The event will feature the celebrated San Francisco–based indie-boy bread peddler Read more about this event
The Interrupters, Left Alone, Oceanside Sound System, HB Surround Sound
Mon., Aug. 4, 7 p.m.
As ska devolves further from its Jamaican roots in the late 1950s, the genre these days often replaces soul and imagination with jock-rock conformity, transforming ska's madly insidious rhythms and uplifting messages into mere background music for frat parties. Of course, the Two-Tone revival in Britain in the early '80s Read more about this event
