    We can’t bear the thought of you being bored this weekend. So we’ve cobbled together an events guide highlighting some of the fun things to do over the next few days in and around Los Angeles. Have fun!


      • A conversation between Somali-British poet Warsan Shire—the celebrated collaborator on Beyonce’s Lemonade—and poet and essayist Morgan Parker is planned tonight at California African American Museum, focusing on the experiences of refugees and migrations, mothers and daughters, trauma and resilience, followed by a book signing with Reparations Club.

      • Score for Here” is a musical installation at L.A. State Historic Park in Chinatown by artist Jimena Sarno. Musical sounds from disparate sources are activated and played over an app each time guests walks by and scans QR codes at the installations, creating a type of walking symphony that follows their footsteps. Sounds will change over time as the installation stays indefinitely. Free, 1245 N. Spring St. Los Angeles, CA 90012
