KCRW is putting on some great events in LA lately!
Thursdays – Poolside DJ sets at Hammer Museum’s outdoor courtyard, inspired by the idea of “Made in L.A.”, and representing the wide array of music created in our very own City of Angels.
Saturdays – A series of a three, free summer concerts to accompany the groundbreaking exhibition Who Shot Rock & Roll at the Annenberg Space for Photography. Last weekend Moby brought down the house, and this weekend is Portugal. The Man in live performance with KCRW DJs Dan Wilcox & Gary Calama.

Forget airbrushed clothes painted on naked girls running around the Playboy mansion, Alexa Meade has taken body as canvas to the next level. A friend of mine posted a link to this NPR article on Facebook, and I was immediately taken back by how literally unreal her “Living Paintings” look. She paints over a peel-able layer of acrylic an a human body, making people look like 2-D portraits with moving eyes. A little creepy, but so cool. Definitely a thing to check out in DC.
“First-time viewers of these “Living Paintings” usually react in disbelief: “Wait, that’s a real person?” Even Meade’s first model, whom she painted back in 2009, mistook a photo of himself for a two-dimensional portrait.”
This is why I love LA. With NBA playoffs, the Stanley Cup and concerts, the Staples Center has been a crazy busy place the last few weeks. It’s good to see the staff, dancers and announcers still managed to have some fun. Thanks for all your hard work guys!
If you’re going to Vegas for EDC this weekend, you’ll probably spend a chunk of change on shuttle passes and cabs. BUT if you end up hitting it big at the tables or you’re just a baller, you can touch down in the ultimate VIP ride the whole weekend for $500 one way or $800 round trip. It’s a little pricey, but pretty awesome!
