LA?

Posted by Lee Wells | Tue Aug 26th 2003 2:27 a.m.

Hello all,

I'm going to LA for the first time on Wednesday.
Does anyone have any recommendations on what to check out while I am there?

Cheers,
Lee

    Lee,

    I live in LA, would be happy to answer any questions for you.

    I agree that you should check out CLUI and the Museum of Jurassic
    Technology.

    You should also, the moment you get off the plane, find a copy of the LA
    Weekly. It is our equivalent of the Village Voice, and lists everything
    that's going on around town. New issues come out Thursday. Don't bother
    with the LA Times, they never list anything that's outside of a white cube
    or interesting. The Weekly has a website so you can do some prep work:
    http://www.laweekly.com/

    I don't know what you are into, but you can email me offlist if you want,
    give me a few clues as to what you are interested in, and I can point you in
    a few directions.

    It's also important to know which part of LA you will be staying in... it's
    a spread out city! If you are going to check out interesting neighborhoods
    though, Echo Park and Silver Lake are good bets. Cheap food, lots of bars,
    lots of "alternative" venues for music, art, various performances. Downtown
    also has a lot going on.

    If you are into experimental/non-mainstream music, check out
    http://www.csulb.edu/~gbach/calendar/index.html for listings.

    Hope that's enough to get you started...

    Hello Lee,

    Places to see, hmmm, the museum of Jurassic Technology is definitely a must,
    as well as the Center for Land use interpretation.

    I would also recommend the usual art places like LACMA (Los Angeles County
    Musueum of Art), MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art). The Museum of art and
    television in Beverly Hills is also very good, although not much better
    than NYC's, still just to take a look at the architecture is worth it.

    If you are interested in the usual art scene, I also recommend visiting
    Bergamot station in Santa Monica, to get a feel for the art in Lalaland,
    as well as the Chinatown galleries, which is where c-level and electronic
    orphanage are located. I think there is not much going on there at the
    moment because of summer, but c-level (http://www.c-level.cc/) usually have
    events, and should have some going on next week. You can also contact
    them and just hang, they are really cool. More stuff: Wilshire art complex
    (6150) Wilshire. (I do not want to sound like a gallery freak, I actually
    have not been to openings for a looonnnng time... but being from out of
    town is often the thing to do.) If you really want to do the gallery scene,
    just pick up a gallery guide.

    I actually lived in Los Angeles, although I recently moved to San Diego,
    which is about 2 hours driving time. I am in Los Angeles quite a bit regardless.

    I would be interested in meeting you, if you happen to be in Los Angeles
    on a weekend. If you are interested, please let me know and I will send
    you my personal contact info.

    Best,

    Eduardo Navas
