...So obviously we haven't been too discrete with our political leanings throughout the 2012 presidential race. But the freedom to do that is one of the awesome things about living in this fine country and another reason why casting your ballot today is important, no matter which candidate and propositions you've backed. After you vote to help keep this country great (it is a privilege and a duty!), why not make the anxiety-ridden wait for the final results at least somewhat enjoyable with your friends? There are plenty of viewing parties and election festivities going down this evening and we're all going to want to celebrate this long race being over regardless of how it ends. With that, we bring you this guide to our top event picks for where to watch and celebrate election night in L.A. [Photo via]
Common sense would indicate that the best time of the year to live in L.A. would be in the winter, when your friends everywhere else are freezing their tucheses off and the worst you need is a light sweater. But actually, it's just as nice now, when your buddies in Brooklyn are pretending to enjoy 90% humidity and you get to choose from the full range of summer options, from gay waterparks to pool parties. But don't get too tired in all that sun, kiddies: there's so much good live music coming up that you need to save something in the tank for the evenings. So rock out during the day, but when nighttime rolls around, don't forget to Go See A Show! More»
Hey, you with the tan lines and the Corolla that's still sporting Connecticut plates. Welcome to L.A. We know you've been talking up SoCal to all your Emerson buddies ever since you landed an internship in the WME mailroom, but now you're out here and you're trying to mine your extensive knowledge of Entourage to think of things to do this summer. One small snafu: you're not a movie star yet, and that $11.63 an hour that Ari's paying you isn't going to support the groovy lifestyle of bangin' club nights that you had envisioned. Lucky for you, L.A. is chock full of great things to do on a budget and we've got the low-down on 10 full days of fun for under $20. More»
Super Tuesday! If the phrase makes you picture cartoon heroes, leaping tall buildings and rescuing the innocent from danger, then you clearly haven't been paying too much attention to this year's Republican Primaries. Innocent people don't give millions to SuperPACs, after all, and lord knows Newt Gingrich has never leapt over a tall anything in his life. In fact, with apologies to our three, maybe four Republican readers, the sorry state of these Primaries (and to be fair, electoral politics in general) really puts you in the mood to just get drunk. Luckily for all, the Hammer Museum in Westwood agrees, which is why they hosted a Super Tuesday party. Drink every time someone says "Obamacare!" More»
The end of the (technical) summer is here. This is good news for me for multiple reasons: my translucent skin, my aversion to shorts, the art world's vacation is finally coming to an end. This doesn't mean that I didn't find some awesome things for you guys, just that in the next couple of weeks everyone will be stepping up their game and it will be on, the beginning of the season. This must be what hunters feel like 2 weeks before deer/duck/bear/buffalo season starts up. Anticipation is in the air! More»
[Erwin Redl installation via] We are now heading toward the middle of August, which means art world vacation is almost over, but not quite. However, if you are like me, you are getting restless of lack of new things to see/do/absorb. Luckily I scoured the town and came up with some good stuff for you this week. See ya around town. More»
As part of The Hammer's public programming events, Hammer Conversations, cult novelist and celebrated Angeleno, Bret Easton Ellis, packed the house with another champion of the city: Pulitzer Prize winning food critic, Jonathan Gold. Although charming and funny, Ellis monopolized the "conversation" with Gold serving more as an interviewer. The rest of us were treated to some fascinating revelations, including the author's obsession with "The Hills". More»
Hello, my name is Alexis and I will bringing you my art picks weekly (or more often if something juicy happens) of everything that you should read/see related to the greater Los Angeles area. You can find my everyday art musings (or check up on my street cred) at my art blog, Hyde or Die. Here's what piqued my interest this week... 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.
