Happy summer solstice! The sun is at its highest point of the year and it's finally starting to feel like the hot, lazy days of summer in Los Angeles are upon us. Our suggestion is to just mellow out and stay cool as best you can this weekend, which unfortunately won't be possible tonight in those long lines for LACMA's visual/aural late-night feast, so get there early. Chase's colorful, inspiring work always reminds us of Venice Beach, where many of his murals stand, and which pops best in summer, we're gonna make sure to check out what's up with his show tonight too, on Melrose. Friday's CircuiTree show in Santa Monica will give everyone a chance to catch up with concious hip-hop, acoustic sets, and clean living, then the earthy, soul-stirring fun continues with world music and eclectic arts at Tropico de Nopal in Echo Park on Saturday. Hope we can make it to Sunday's DJ Shadow/Cut Chemist collaboration at the Bowl, sounds like some trippy Pink Floyd kind of shit. That works well with our blazingly sunny summer dispositions.
