  • Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) - Museum in Los Angeles.
    Apr 16, 2013 Don't be Kind of Blue, go Forget Your Troubles and, Come on, Get Happy! "While "LACMA" is fairly well known as a term thrown around in artsy conversation, the museum happens to hold many a hidden treasure. Perhaps most widely recognized by its Urban Light installation - you know, those big lights in the Ashton Kutcher rom-com - it happens to host, in my opinion, one of the greatest secret gems of Los Angeles. Three words, people. Free. Live. Jazz. Now, I happen to think jazz is largely under-appreciated by many a teenager these days, but let me call out to my fellow ladies. Think about it for a minute. If a guy took you to see live jazz at a museum, with the street lamps of Chris Burden's romantic creation back-lighting the musicians, would you not be swept off your feet? Fellas, if you happened to do this, and perhaps, if you happened to grab your date and start dancing among said street lamps, she's yours, I can guarantee you. Even I - and I happen to be a very cynical person disinclined to romanticism - have swooned a little in such a circumstance. But this is a perfect destination for couples of all ages, for the tunes played harken back from generations past; but of course, as music is universal, the wailing of a sax can be felt in the bones of anyone regardless of age or decade. The acts playing under the Urban Light are, as LACMA advertises, "a celebration of L.A.'s finest jazz musicians" and include Grammy-award-winning artists (for example, Arturo Sandoval and his nine Grammys play this Friday). "Jazz at LACMA" takes place April through November, so it has just now started up again! Go and listen to some bop! " hide

    The Fonda Theatre - Concert Venue in Los Angeles.
    Mar 29, 2013 It Doesn't Need To Be The 20s To Party Like It Is. "Music is about the past, the present, and the future. Music stimulates every one of us humans in some way – it may possibly even cause plants to get their groove on, according to many a sixth-grade science fair project. Music, ladies and gentlemen, is one of the largest mediums through which messages are transferred and translated all over the globe. It is the world’s post office, so to speak, for human emotion. The point? We humans like to jam, simple as that. Whether to escape into another world, to get over a lousy break-up, or, perhaps most universally, to simply feel like we are not alone – it is scientifically proven that seeing a band live gives us this sort-of-high exponentially more than listening to a song through headphones. The energy in the air at a concert is electric, because it is charged with human connection. The band connecting to the audience, the audience connecting to the band, the audience members connecting with each other, and everyone connecting with the environment around them. It is a feeling that is unique to every time it is experienced, and one that can never be recreated. The Past: The Fonda Theater has been welcoming arts into the world since the 1920s, and you can tell as soon as you walk through its doors. The chandeliers on the wall, the black and white tiled floors, the ornate carvings – besides the amazing performances that have been hosted there over the years, the interior itself is an architectural beauty that reminds concert-goers that music is not only something that we connect with for one night, but something that has always stirred and united the minds of people for as long as it has been around. This venue used to be called The Music Box, and those who really know their stuff still refer to it as such. So don’t be afraid to toss the name around – you’ll become an insider. The Present: Currently The Fonda Theater hosts artists of all genres, from artists who have broken musical ground in the past like Mr. Tom Petty, to popular radio stars like La Roux, to indie favorites like Bat for Lashes. Tom Petty will be reconnecting with The Heartbreakers here at The Music Box this June, so all of you Petty fans who belong with the wildflowers will get to enjoy this classic reunion. The Future: Have a favorite band that only you and a handful of friends listen to? They might be at The Fonda Theater, and you may get to see them for thirty bucks before they hit it big and you can’t afford to see them from the nosebleeds at The Hollywood Bowl. Anybody a fan of The Lumineers? Don’t lie, every time that Bing commercial is on and you pretend to hate “Ho Hey,” you know you secretly can’t help but like it and took pride in listening to them before they played at this past Grammys. I saw them before they blew up at The Fonda Theater, where they covered Dylan and unplugged all their instruments from their sound systems, quieting the audience so we could all hear them play from the giant awnings that flank the stage. Point being? If you have a favorite indie band, chances are you can see them here before the rest of the world, and you will be able to say you knew them back when. This place gives you cred. Check out The Fonda Theater for a bit of Hollywood history and an amazing set! " hide
