next weekend would be better for me to serenade you all with my voice of death.

And that would be a vision.

I could not do karaoke, however! Earlier on the 19th I will be in town for the Will Sergeant exhibition:

As noted he's at the gallery both on the 18th and 19th; our OC bunch is doing the 19th one as it's better for our schedule.

I'll be at the opening on the 18th (works better for my schedule). It's a cool gallery, same place the Natty Brooker/SP3 art exhibition was a couple years ago.

I'll be there.

Conflicting shows tonight though. I really want to go see Stan Ridgway out at Pappy & Harriets. I also want to see White Hills at the Echo and Devo too of course, but I have to go to LAX tonight and so Devo it is.

Also, the Arclight Hollywood is showing Barry Lyndon in the Cinerama Dome tonight, tomorrow and Tuesday. Thinking of going on Tuesday.

On Saturday, the Institute For Figuring is having an open house at their space in Chinatown: http://blogs.laweekly.com/arts/2012/05/institute_for_figuring_math_science.php

Anyone else going to BJM tomorrow?

i'm still down for karaoke -- it seemed like both this weekend (which vik was bullish on) and next were bad for people. would saturday the 26th be any good? or friday the 25th?

get wolves (get bent), Saturday, 12 May 2012 01:00 (2 years ago) Permalink

not actually going to DEVO (computer keeps wanting to change this to "deco") tonight

i saw MEN (jd samson's band, not THE men on sacred bones) at echoplex last night, they were fun

think last weekend of may would be better for me overall for karaoke

Bah, the word is out on fish taco comedy (I went to a couple of these are they're great!) http://blogs.laweekly.com/arts/2012/05/best_fish_taco_ensenada_comedy.php

Semi-IT: watching Bill Hader break is one of the great joys of current-day SNL. (And, frankly, one of the most common ones!)

hey, was in LA over the weekend. drank for three straight days. here's where we went

Jumbos Clown Room
Red Lion Biergarten
Phillipes French Dip
Some "Tiki" Bar that had no kitsch appeal but the best rum drinks, i cannot remember the name. completely non-descript building
Walked around Chinatown, i think (anyway it was around Phillipes). there was an open air market there, ended up having good Margaritas
Bought Jamesons at a CVS which cannot be done in Ohio

had a great time.

Adam, if you're still looking for a house, a pretty nice one popped up on LA.Curbed.com (look for baby blue bungalow). Just north of York near Ave 49.
