LA Events

This will probably be my first and last events listing. I wanted to write it because there's some great stuff happening in Los Angeles this weekend. Way too much in fact. I wish I could go to all these. But it's not possible. I'm def going to check out some of the Michael Powell screenings and see Bloody Mess on Friday. This is a film heavy list. There's plenty of club shit going on here, but I'm not posting it. Nope. Just get on the DimMak party list if you want to know that stuff. If anyone who reads this even lives in LA. I can't tell. Here goes... OH! and in case I don't do this again in a week, let it be known that two awesome shows are happening next week: Ditty Bops are playing @ the Silent Movie Theater on Thurs. 12/8 and Vagenius is playing with Layton @ Spaceland on Sat. 12/10.
