Weekend Guide Oct. 4 + 5 + 6

It’s time for the weekend and for once I’m able to put out a Weekend Guide! It’s been crazy at work, but I can’t not do one on Life Absorbed’s birthday! Crazy-talk.


Tonight, Friday October 4th, maybe you were lucky enough to snag a $60 ticket to the small Moby concert at the Fonda? It looks like a limited number are left, so if you’re a fan it’ll be worth the price. The concert starts at 8:30, so you’ve only got 4 hours left to decide.


Not a Moby fan? Like outdoor movies? The many outdoor summer series throughout the summer may have ended, but there’s one that normally begins in Fall, It’s the Barnsdall Art Park’s Outdoor Movie Nights. For some reason they have only committed to doing this one night this fall, and it’s tonight! I hope you like the film Inception. The remaining tickets are $25 but include wine/beer. Usually food trucks are there too and it’s fun to layout a picnic on the hill overlooking downtown as the sun is setting while sipping wine and watching movies. Enjoy!


Lastly, you can check out Maria Bamford tonight in NoHo at The Federal Bar. They have good food, beer and comedy (upstairs). She will be performing with other comedians in a Ladies Night Fun-raiser. Tickets are $15, get there at 7pm!


If you’re up for shopping Saturday, October 5, check out THIS Pop-up Vintage Marketplace happening downtown. There’s going to be a dj and food and all that jazz from 3-8pm. Tickets are $10 and you can get them HERE or at the door.


If you are ready to rock out, you better hit up the Eagle Rock Music Festival happening (you guessed it) in Eagle Rock (Colorado Blvd)! It’s a $10 suggested donation. Check out the lineup HERE!


At night head downtown to see the Zombie Fashion Show + Creature Art Exhibit at Lot 613. There’s a $10 cover and the event includes tons of zombie pieces in this fashion show as well as djs (of course). 21+


On Sunday, October 5th, CicLAvia is happening downtown from 9a-4pm. Check out the map and deets HERE!


Book Soup in West Hollywood has Bo Burnham stopping by Sunday at 5pm. There’s also a Saturday Book Soup event with Nick Offerman for his new book. Check out the store website for details.

Alright, Happy Weekend Everybody! Go out there and have fun!

Do This Today: The Super Serious Show

I’ve decided to start out a new segment of the blog. Since fun things are constantly going on mid-week and on the weekends here in Los Angeles, in addition to the Weekend Guide I’m going to start giving weekday daily updates called “Do This Today”. This won’t interfere with my regular posts. Just think of it as an added mini-post to help you find fun things to do around LA daily. Sometimes it’ll be a special event or even something ongoing, but I promise it’ll be budget friendly.


Today’s “Do This Today” is about COMEDY! Tonight at Cafe Fais Do-Do¬†there will be a performance of the Super Serious Show. Remember when I went last month and had a blast?¬†Well, now you can go experience the show with a whole new set of comedians.

Tonights show features Michael Kosta, Kyle Kinane, The Sklar Brothers, Jackie Kashian, Guy Branum and videos by Jeremy Konner. It starts at 7pm, and tickets are $13 if you get them in advance. I happen to know that the discount code for half-priced tickets is COTON (assuming the deal is still on) and you can get them HERE. There is free beer from Eagle Rock Brewery and free wine from Cube Cafe. And of course there will be a food truck (TBD) in the back patio. Get your tickets, bring a friend and have a hilarious night!
