Victory Lap is a variety show, emphasis on the variety: There’s a traditional house band and stand-up comedians (Megan Koester, Brendon Small, Dan St. Germain) between sets, but then there are the weirder things: puppet surgery, tap dancing, busking. Even stranger is what takes place offstage: slow dancing, usually. That’s because at Victory Lap, there’s no separation between performers and audience members, and the latter can purchase raffle tickets for a chance to take the stage and spin a giant wheel that will lead to either humiliation or victory — often, one is the result of the other, and there are plenty of cool prizes as consolation. Tonight’s Halloween-themed shindig is hosted by Dracula (who looks a lot like Victory Lap co-host Seth W. Owen) and the wheel features more frightening challenges than usual. “If it lands on a séance, we’ll have a séance onstage,” producer Sharon Eisman says. “We’re a little nuts. This is the most nuts we get.” Venue: The Virgil

Description: Latin American Masters is pleased to present Transpositions, recent paintings by Gustavo Acosta. Transpositions features paintings, many of which have a segmented, split-screen structure. Their imagery is the product of a denatured, electronically mediated world. Dystopian critiques aside, these paintings have a formal power that can be traced to their geometric construction. In it's order and precision, Acosta's geometry offers a counterpoint to the grim realities of his timeworn urban landscape. The absence of people, and of human scale, underscores the illusory quality of Acosta's cities. Join Latin American Masters and the artist for the Opening Reception on June 22nd from 4-7pm.

The legendary Japanese-Swedish pianist Fuzjko Hemming will be back to the Walt Disney Concert Hall! Despite her severe hearing difficulties and turbulent life story, including a time spent under refugee status, pianist Fuzjko Hemming has beaten the odds to become a highly-acclaimed concert pianist. In 1999, her documentary broadcast in Japan created a huge sensation, which made her a star with the multi-million selling debut album “La Campanella” in her late 60s. The program includes Chopin “Revolutionary Étude,” Mozart Sonata No.11 in A major, Debussy “Clair de Lune” and her signature piece—Liszt ”La Campanella.” The portion of the proceeds from the recital goes to El Sistema Japan to support children affected by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
The Santa Monica Chorus, newly crowned Regional Champions, is turning 70 this year! To celebrate 70 years of women's a cappella singing with Sweet Adelines International, Santa Monica Chorus is hosting a night filled with music through the years. ‘City of Stars’ will be held at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City. The show will feature women’s 4-part barbershop a cappella music from the year the chorus began their chapter in 1949 to music that we all know and love now. The show will also spotlight chorus quartets Gotta Sing!, Vixen, Troubadour, Calypso, and Wild. Santa Monica Chorus is a non-profit community organization and has been featured on local TV and in Santa Monica holiday and July Fourth celebrations. It is one of the many chapters in Region 11 of Sweet Adelines International. Santa Monica Chorus was founded in 1949, just four years after Sweet Adelines International was established. SAI is an international a cappella singing organization of 21,000 members. Their goal was to create an organization that connects women around the world into one sisterhood. “We’re dedicated to preserving the unique sound of a cappella barbershop harmony, sharing our passion for music and empowering women in every area of their lives.” Santa Monica Chorus is excited to celebrate 70 years of singing and to see where the next years will take them. See the chorus grace the Kirk Douglas Theatre stage on Sunday, July 14th at 6:30 PM. Tickets are only $15. Visit https://cityofstars70.brownpapertickets.com/ more information and for tickets.
There's no better gift you can give to a cancer patient than the gift of hair! Real hair wigs can be extremely expensive, and by donating hair, we can help make free wigs for cancer patients. We're partnering with Salon Dione for the second time, to make a difference in the world of cancer. Our goal is to host this event every two years so the same group of gals, and more every time, can come, have a great time, and do something that can so help a cancer patient. After all, they need the hair more than we do. And the best part is, it grows back! Hair donations are mailed to Hair We Share, an organization that donates real hair wigs to children under 18 and adults facing financial hardships. Most wigs go to people who have medical conditions or chemo-related hair loss, or who have experienced trauma (like burns) that prevent hair regrowth. Donation requirements: Hair must be 8” or more. When determining length, please consider split and damaged ends will be trimmed away. Hair cannot be highlighted but can be dyed. (If your hair is highlighted or bleached in any way, it will be mailed to a different organization - Locks of Love, which has less strict donation guidelines. If donating to Locks of Love, pony tail must be a minimum of 10 inches long) Gray hair is ok. Curly and wavy hair should be kept in its natural pattern and not blown straight. Hair must be clean and completely dry. The amazing Salon Dione stylists are giving complimentary hair cuts & styles for all who donate. And of course, there's no cost to donate. The coolest thing about donating to Hair We Share is their Ponytail Tracking Program! Within 6 months of receiving donated hair, they'll send you a photo of your hair in a wig. Although it is not likely, whenever possible we they'll provide a photo of the recipient of the wig. Please know that most patients prefer to remain anonymous due to difficulties they face during fragile times in their lives. To find out how to join their Ponytail Tracking program, visit their website https://hairweshare.org/donate/ Come enjoy light snacks, refreshments, music, girl talk, and a feel good about your gift! Venue: Salon Dione
