As it’s Tuesday, this would normally be Doug Loves Movies/ Comedy Bang Bang night at UCB. Doug Loves Movies is still happening at 7pm tonight (always free, so get in line early to get a seat) but Comedy Bang Bang has retired. In it’s place is “Put Your Hands Together” produced by A Special Records and hosted by Cameron Esposito. This is sold out, but they are good about fitting people in who are on the waiting list. Get there for DLM and get your name on the standby list for this show. Why not also put your name on the standby list for Before You Were Funny with Rob Delaney, Matt Walsh, and Casey Wilson. To see these three shows it’ll only cost you $10! Do it!
I’m sorry I’m so lacking today. I even have the day off from work, but I’ve been scrambling to get ready for a big camping weekend (as well as still doing work from home). That’s right folks, I’ll be out in the wilderness for the next 2 nights, so there won’t be any updates.
As for the weekend guide, here’s all I’ve got because I have to leave shortly.
FRIDAY July 13th:
Check out Shakespeare in the Park! It’s in Griffith and it’s free. Tonight they’re doing The Winter’s Tale. Grand Performances is doing a show called Mexico: Unexpected (MMM) which could be fun. If you like comedy, Set List is on at UCB tonight and tickets are still available. Dana Gould, Jackie Kashian, Rory Scovel, and Moshe Kasher will be there. Get tickets here.
SATURDAY July 14th:
On Saturday Silver Lake Craft and Vintage is back, and this time with free coffee. It runs from 10am to 4p so you should stop by and then explore the Silver Lake hills. It’s very fun. Later that night Church and State Bistro as well as Cliff’s are offering Bastille Day deals. So if you want to celebrate, hit them both up. Also, Eat See Hear is showing Pee Wee’s Big Adventure down in San Pedro if you’re south and want a night under the stars. At 10pm, Cinefamily is showing Party Girl starring Parker Posey and the director will be there in person (Daisy von Scherler Mayer). Tickets are $12 and you can get them here.
SUNDAY July 15th:
I’m having a hard time finding new unique events happening this Sunday. I blame comicon. Just because there aren’t new events doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to do in Los Angeles on Sunday. Why not try a museum: Moca, LACMA, The Hammer, or even The Museum of Death (if you’re feeling brave). Have you seen Gallery 1988‘s Arrested Development exhibit? Go because it’s awesome and it closes after July 21st. On Sunday night UCB does their free Asssscat show, so get in line early to secure a spot and enjoy a free night of comedy.
I sincerely apologize to you for this lack-luster imageless update, but it’s all I can do. Just know that you are most important to me. Now go off and have a fabulous weekend!
