Massive Attack in L.A.

Tonight is the third and final night of Massive Attack at The Wiltern here in Los Angeles. Tickets are not sold out for tonight’s show as of now (10:18am), which means you have one more chance if you missed the first two sold-out shows.

If you miss them again, you can try your luck at the free outdoor mini-concert for the Jimmy Kimmel show tomorrow night. You can request free tickets online here. I don’t know how mini this mini concert is, but my sense is that you’d have a better chance at The Wiltern.

Winterthrall/Ludicra Live in L.A. Tonight!

Joining Winterthrall on stage tonight will be our good friend Janis Tanaka (ex-Hammers of Misfortune) who’ll be lending her voice to the epic Stormraven track, “V”.

Sherman Torgan, who once commented on my Meshuggah shirt as he sold me tickets to his theater, took over The Beverly Cinema in 1978. He then changed the name to The New Beverly Cinema and changed the programming from live nude dancing to classic, independent, and foreign films. The Torgan family has been playing killer double features every night since and will continue to do so as Tarantino is letting the Torgans continue to run the theater. Continue reading
