Weekend Events ~ June 8th-10th, 2007 ~ Los Angeles


There are lots of opportunities to see passionate people doing their own thing in Los Angeles this weekend, whether it's bad Bart Simpson tats or hot pin-up girl ink prevailing at the Queen Mary this weekend. Make a day and night out of that Long Beach layover, you absolutely must get your booties to The Self-Made Art Show which features work from the cream of LA's street /graffiti artist crop. It will be dope, possibly even giving you the chance to own some infamous artwork rather than waste that sexy manicure pulling it off the walls. Turntable Lab and Saturday's Swimming with Sharks party at the Standard will similarly be showcasing boundary-pushing beats by today's most discussed dance DJs, both imported and homegrown. And if it's passion we're talking 'pon, give a spin to Cesaria Evora, her voice and rhythms are Cape Verde royalty and are gracing our city tonight at the Orpheum.
