Over the Weekend: Yeasayer, Bob Marley, Haiti Relief Benefit and Xena Con
When we weren't hitting up Super Bowl parties, we were taking in a little Xena: Warrior Princess fandemonium and a lot of music. The weekend began with ultra-hip Brooklyn band Yeasayer playing amongst the dinosaur skeletons and wooly mammoth displays at L.A.'s Natural History Museum and continued with the 15th Annual Xena Convention, Bob Marley art show "Jammin' and Wailin'" and El Rey's Haiti Relief benefit featuring Hepcat, Dengue Fever and more.
Monthly science and music extravaganza First Fridays filled the Natural History Museum last weekend with performances from locals Warpaint and Brooklyn's Yeasayer. See more in Timothy Norris' photo gallery.
To celebrate his 65th birthday, Mr. Musichead Gallery opened its latest show, "Jammin' & Wailin': A Bob Marley Celebration" Saturday night. The collection features photography as well as silkscreens, mosaics, watercolors and more. See more in Timothy Norris' photo gallery.
Saturday night, L.A. music fans headed down to El Rey Theatre to raise funds for earthquake relief in Haiti. The concert featured performances from Hepcat, Dengue Fever, Very Be Careful and The Lions. See more in Timothy Norris' photo gallery.
There's a bit of a warrior princess in all of us, but, sometimes, wearing tight, thigh-high black leather isn't practical.
