We know we're the wrong people to be delivering this message, but it's rapidly approaching the time that we're all going to have to let Coachella go. You can continue to treasure your experiences, but after a week or two nobody really wants to hear your story about how your Ecstasy trip peaked at the top of the Ferris wheel right when Gotye hit that high note. Sorry! The good news is, there are wonderful local traditions like Steve Aoki's annual post-Coachella rager at Dim Mak Studios to help reintegrate you into society by giving you a healthy combination of things that are the same as they are at Coachella, and things that are different. We'll explain. More»

When NYC nighlife barons Paul Sevigny and Andre Saraiva headed west, they had everyone in LA talking. From the get-go, they weren't set to last long. After a short 6 months, the pop up party "PaulandAndre" closed this weekend. We hope this means their focus will shift to opening Le Baron in Chinatown. MORE>>>
In the seven-ish months since Paul & Andre opened its doors and diluted the obscenely over-saturated bottle service, fog cannons and dubstep scene to bring a little bit of NYC flavor up in Hollywood, the landscape of L.A. nightlife has changed. Namely, it gave us a reason to believe not all nightclubs in this city have to be tacky. I personally have come to love the place and spend entirely too much time there but at least I've been taking full advantage of a good thing while I still can before it closes on Sunday. More»
Local singer-songwriter Marisa Guterman has been lighting up Los Angeles with her original music at such live music venues as Hotel Cafe, the Viper Room, The Mint and Cinespace to name a few, and last night took over L.A. institution House of Blues' Foundation Parish for a live performance. More»
Because L.A. wasn't doing it, two dudes had to come here from NYC to get this town with the program and open a spot without promoters, which is probably why you haven't heard much about Paul & Andre. But as promised when we broke the news it was coming, we're keeping you up on what's happening with that mysterious little alley lair with no address that officially opens tonight, so here's the deal...

The first week of March 2011 may go down in history as the easiest week ever to write a pop culture blog. Even without Charlie Sheen, we had an Oscars telecast that actually made people nostalgic for the days of David Letterman hosting, an across-the-pond fall from grace for a top fashion designer, and even Britney was relevant enough to get sued! But let's be for real: it's all about Charlie. And Charlie, as it turns out, is shrewder than we all thought. Sure, his behavior is dangerous and troubling, for an actor. But for a tortured literary genius? He's right on track! More»
Last week, when a little birdie told me NYC nightlife impresarios behind some of the city's hottest haunts, Paul Sevigny and Andre Saraiva, were making their foray into Hollywood, I was brimming with emotion at this exciting prospect. That's not something I'm proud of but if you've ever been to NYC's Don Hill's which Sevigny and others opened during Fall Fashion Week, or Beatrice Inn, a joint Sevigny-Saraiva effort, before it closed, then maybe you understand. The birdie sang like a canary in detail about the project, but we kept our big mouth shut and reserved celebrating the news until confirmation came in the form of an interview of Saraiva himself with NYC editor Mara Siegler...

For those of you who thought it was the lyrics to a Muppets song, the 'Dim Mak' from 'Dim Mak Tuesdays' actually represents the ancient and feared 'touch of death' martial arts technique. While we're not saying Steve Aoki can kill you with a single touch, we're not about to challenge the guy to hand-to-hand combat, either. And it seems he's been using his weekly party as a training dojo, teaching deadly techniques to the crowd. We sent an undercover operative to investigate... More»

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
