Where To Play In L.A.

March 29, 2018

Where the hell is the good art in Los Angeles?  You are about to find out from us, weekly.

This week there are a few gems in the realm of worthwhile artistic events, and below are my picks so you don't have to waste your valuable time with the hyped up crap (the good kind) you still have plenty of time to see.

 

 

Pussy Riot at The Echo

The Queers, The Dickies, and The Cocks at The Viper Room

SEX CELLS Divine Ball at El Rey Theater

March 31

 

Remember all that noise about "Free Pussy Riot"you vaguely remember from 2012?  Well, Pussy Riot is a band. They're not the greatest band of musical artists, so if you still want some punk rock pit action, check out The Queers, The Dickies, and The Cocks---unless of course you happen to be a huge John Waters fanatic like myself. Are you?

 

 

Well, if the words "SEX CELLS Divine Ball" didn't already sound filthily fabulous, the event is presented by Los Angeles based art gallery Lethal Amounts, infamous for highlighting influential counter culture ideas and taboos over history, including rock 'n' roll. There's more. Dress to impress and disgust, as Divine would do both, for your shot at the Divine look-a-like contest featuring a $500 grand prize. Wait, there is still more. This contest will be judged by none other than John Waters film famed Divine co-stars Mink Stole and Traci Lords, not to mention more punk rock art to be found tonight here with third judge Linda Ramone. Need I say more why this is my top pick? Oh, and Pussy Riot is playing March 31 to April 2 at The Echo, so you've got plenty of plan flexibility.
