Follow Exene to the Library
You gotta love Los Angeles, this strange showbiz city where a civic institution like the Central Library is willing -- and able -- to host such a freewheeling, free-thinking and all around swingin' event as This Is Your Library. The night includes a mad moderated conversation among local luminaries including punk rock high priestess Exene Cervenka, novelist and veteran Los Angeles Times scribe Hector Tobar, library chief John Szabo (the top banana for 4 millionÐplus readers) and director-writer-producer Mike White (School of Rock, HBO's Enlightened), in addition to a major musical spree, featuring well-regarded psych rock upstarts Feeding People, Zak Shaffer & the Library All-Star Band and dublab DJs; plus food and a bar, even. This is definitely some crazy-cool after-hours action. Los Angeles Central Library, Mark Taper Auditorium, 630 W. Fifth St., dwntwn.; Sat., March 2, doors 7 p.m., showtime 8 p.m., concert 9:30 p.m.; $20, $5 concert only. (213) 228-7000, lfla.org.
