Due to a bad/spotty internet and a rushed day at work, I’m going to have to give you the abbreviated version of the Weekend Guide. Sorry bout that, but there are some gems!
The weekend is the LA Podcasting Festival downtown. If you are like me and love podcasts (specifically the comedy ‘casts) come check out this event and meet the faces behind the voices. It’s all weekend, so check the schedule to see your favs.
Tonight there is an outdoor Grand Park movie screening of The Goonies with festivities starting at 5:30p. Pack up a picnic, hop on the metro and head downtown to watch this classic film. Over on the west side? Check out the Santa Monica’s Pier screening of Exit Through The Gift Shop.
Jesse Miller’s Talk Show is tonight at the Improv Lab, with special guest Martin Starr (Freaks and Geeks) and lots more. You’ll have fun and it’s only $5.
Do you have Space Shuttle fever? If you missed it flying across LA, don’t miss your chance to see it driven to it’s final resting spot at the California Science Center.
The OohLaLa Festival is happening this weekend around Los Angeles. This festival is a showcase of French bands playing all around LA. Check HERE for the schdule. At least if you can’t make any of the shows you can find them on itunes and get cultured. Oui Oui!
If you’ve never been to the Walt Disney Music Hall (like me), then their “Where The Wild Things” event this weekend might be the perfect opportunity to experience the LA Philharmonic. Tickets range for $18-$180, and check here for availability.
On Sunday from 11a -5pm the LA Antiques, Art and Design Show is happening at the Santa Monica Hangar. It’s a bit pricy ($20) but you’re supporting the arts and hopefully getting inspired.
Sunday night at El Cid is a new comedy show called “El Show!”. It’s a $10 suggested donation (it goes to the Livestrong Foundation), tons of comedians including the NYC based Dan Mintz, Trevor Moore, Eric Andrea, Kyle Mooney, Jon Dore… basically, you need to be there.
