The summer of live music is still going strong and it's only May. Although it may feel like your only option if you get the mid-week going out itch is to hit up the club for a late night of drinking that probably wasn't worth the hangover, there is a happy medium between raging and staying in.

It's October? When did that happen? I swear I JUST paid September's rent, like, yesterday. Time flies when you're having fun/on a deadline, eh?

As we get ever closer to the official October launch date of The Getty's sprawling Pacific Standard Time initiative, the preview exhibits and promotional materials continue to surprise, delight, and raise our already intense anticipation.

Another weekend of awesome weather—and by awesome I obviously mean terrifying because people are talking about snow.

Awesome art stuff; opening and ongoing, along with a smattering of important news that will have you impressing future conversation partners all through the weekend. Until next week that is, when I see you again. More»
