Not heading down to Coachella? It may seem like everyone and their mother is bailing for Indio, but we promise you'll be in good company this weekend the others staying in town. In fact, there's plenty of action happening in L.A. over the next few days to keep you busy with your fellow No-chella comrades that it would be a shame to let your FOMO keep you from enjoying yourself in L.A. this weekend. From a Calvin Harris show and a "Localchella" performance by The Postal Service, to a masked Mexican wrestling match and an Iggy Pop-themed dance celebration, there's loads to do and see. So let that FOMO go and enjoy your weekend in L.A. with this guide to the best local happenings and events that don't require schlepping out to the desert.
The First Friday live music series presented by KCRW and Spaceland is held in one of the most awesomely unconventional venues in the history of concert series: The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles' mammal hall, a long rectangular room with historic habitat dioramas filled with life-size wild animals lining the walls. We were there to catch April installment featuring Dan Deacon and Japanther and capture the majesty of how live music can inspire man's inner wild beast.
Saturday night, Downtown's historic Greenbar Distillery, L.A.'s first distillery since the prohibition, hosted the #KCRWmoves Pop-Up Gallery event where guests were invited out for drinks, bites, music, and art. With KCRW DJs Dan Wilcox and Aaron Byrd covering the ones and twos, guests filled the venue for a look at the photos of recording artists who have played the KCRW studio on display for the one-night only pop-up gallery. Check out the slideshow to see photos from inside the #KCRWmoves Pop-Up event.
