    Chulita Vinyl Club @ Novacane Bar

    [dropcap size=big]W[/dropcap]hat could possibly be cooler than listening to bomb WOC DJ’s spin records at my favorite bar? Nothing. Chulita Vinyl Club members will be spinning souldies, funk and more at the Nocavane, which is actually named after the Frank Ocean song. Listen to some dope beats and grab a drink, their micheladas are great and made our michelada list. The novacane also boasts a full list of original cocktails, I would recommend the “Love Fool” which is basically a mangoneada with a bunch of tequila in it. Get more details here.

    When: Friday, June 21
    Where: Novacane Bar, Huntington Park

    Opening Reception: Homebase

    [dropcap size=big]R[/dropcap]esidency Art Gallery is presenting Homebase, an exhibition that is described as a “love letter” to Los Angeles. This particular show aims to highlight narratives that aren’t talked about enough in mainstream outlets, including homelessness, community, family, and the everyday trials that come with living in a city with a huge wealth gap. Participating artists were asked to create works that “aesthetically capture narratives, moments, and settings that embody” perceptions of Los Angeles. The gallery opens this Saturday, but if you miss that, it runs until August 10th. Get more details here.

    When: Saturday, June 22
    Where: Residency Art Gallery, Inglewood

    ARRL Field Day

    [dropcap size=big]E[/dropcap]ver wanted to try operating a HAM radio? Now’s your chance! Basically 40,000 ham radios are going to be set up throughout the country for ARRL Field Day, which has been happening every year since 1933. The point of Field Day is to educate the public on ham radio's science, skill, and service. Ham radios are also good for emergency preparedness, definitely great for the climate change or zombie apocalypse (whichever comes first). If all this sounds like fun to you, head over to the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. There will be radio lessons and a potluck. Get more details here.

    When: Saturday & Sunday, June 22 & 23
    Where: Art Center College of Design, Pasadena

    Mega Mujeres Market

    [dropcap size=big]H[/dropcap]ere’s another chance to support local BIPOC artists! Shoutout to Nalgona Positivity for bringing out a long list of creators, artists, and vendors that’s just dizzying. I love Mujeres Market events. It’s really fun to get to know the vendors. Why go to mass retailers when you can find unique pieces here and maybe make a new friend or two? Get more details here.

    When: Sunday, June 23
    Where: Rio Hondo Golf Club, Downey
