Those Hollywood Nights

Last night, I met up with my friends Eileen and Caleb for a dinner hang that we have been planning for a few weeks now. We decided at Caleb’s birthday party a few weeks ago that the 3 of us needed to get together and catch up on things. After dinner, we made our way into Hollywood to see our girl Hustle Roses play a late night show. My night with my friends was so chill, it was a great way to spend my Wednesday night. More »

‘Batman’ V ‘Friday’

I spent my night last night at the CityWalk in Universal City so that I could attend the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice IMAX event as well as the 20th anniversary screening of Friday. It worked out well that both events were taking place at the same AMC Theater at the CityWalk so I lucked out. The Batman V Superman event was fun but nothing all that special. We saw the trailer that was released on Friday but with one extra scene of Batman and Superman rushing toward one another in battle. I have to admit, the trailer looked great in IMAX. The colors really pop and the large size format made every single detail more visible. Now, the Friday screening, that was a blast. The theater was packed with ardent fans so, yeah, I had fun.

‘Friday’ On A Monday

Today is 4/20 and, as such, the 20th anniversary release of the 1995 stoner movie Friday is being screen in theaters around the country today. I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I plan on attending one of those screenings tonight. I think it’s pretty clear that I am a huge fan of screenings of classic movies in movie theaters and today’s screening of Friday is right in line with my fandom. I’m not sure how you plan on celebrating 4/20 today but my plan is to be at the movies. More »

Running The Strip

Earlier this morning, I was up bright and early to make my way to West Hollywood, CA so that I could run the inaugural Sunset Strip Half Marathon. As I had hoped, the race was a really great one with a mostly excellent course and lots of great perks. I really love West Hollywood so it was a real treat to run the streets of WeHo, with particular focus on the Sunset Strip, early this morning. There were a few things that really did suck about the race but all in all, it was a really fun experience overall. More »

RSD 2015

Last night I met up with some of my SoA friends for a night of revelry and bowling at Lucky Strike that ended up stretching into the week hours of Saturday morning … which would’ve been find had I not had to get up early and get to Amoeba Music in Hollywood to partake in my annual Record Store Day ritual. I’m happy to report that my RSD excursion was really successful and pretty much pain-free. The early bird gets the worm, they say, and so too does the early RSD devotee. More »

A Night Out With The Girls

Last night I met up with my friends Ollie and Amelia for a fun little hang in DTLA where we grabbed dinner then saw a show. Because we are such big fans of her music and because I was really impressed when I saw her in concert a couple of years ago, we were all very excited to see Azealia Banks in concert at Club Nokia at LA Live. Believe me, I am not a fan of many of the things that Banks says in interviews or on social media but her music is really amazing and her live performances are absolute fire. She was amazing last night, like truly, so I’m glad that we got to see her in concert together. More »

Mac Sabbath Slays, Chvrches Rules

Last night, I finally got to see the LA cover band Mac Sabbath live in concert and I am very happy to report that it was truly one of the most fun concerts I’d been to in a very long time. Mac Sabbath is a Black Sabbath cover band that dresses as demonic McDonald’s characters. They play up the McD’s theme very well in the look and feel of their shows and even change the lyrics to Black Sabbath songs to make them even better. I went to the show with my friend Eileen and her new man Kevin. Afterward, I hightailed it back to Hollywood to see Chvrches play a late night DJ set at Sound Nightclub … which kept me out until 3AM. Ugh. It was a long but very fun night. More »

FKA twigs Reigns Supreme

Last night, I met up with my friend Stacey at the Belasco Theater in DTLA to see the utterly amazing FKA twigs live in concert and let me tell you, she put on a breathtaking performance. I got to see twigs in concert last November and I was so utterly amazed by her show that I knew I had to see her in concert again. twigs is one of the featured performers at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival but, thankfully, she decided to play a Localchella show here in LA this week. OMG. She was so good. So damn good. More »

The Babysitters Club

Last night was a really cool night for me … because I got to spend a lot of really great quality time with my little homeboy Duke. His parents, Emma and Josh, attended the Hollywood premiere of The Avengers: Age of Ultron at the Dolby Theater so Emma’s sister Chelsea and I were enlisted to care for the little prince while his parents partied the night away. Yes, we had to send them constant updates and lots of photos so that they could see that Duke was OK but we had a blast nonetheless. More »
