June 1 will be the opening of three new shows at SMMOA: there will be Joyce Pensato’s I Killed Kenny, Park Studio’s Skaters And Makers, and Marco Rios’ Anatomy Of An Absent Artist. They all sound rad! They’ll be up through August 17, too.
While perusing KCET’s always fabulous and always informative Food section, we read a story about a little buying app that seeks to help you sidestep the shit of corporate greed through technology. It’s called Buycott and the idea is to give you–the consumer–the power to make informed purchases that aren’t somehow supporting a cause you are against. It gives us the chance to stick our money where shitty people can’t find it and, hopefully, cause some change in the world. It all started from Angeleno Ivan Pardo, too.
Punch-Out!! is coming to Los Angeles June 10 through June 13. What’s that? The world premiere of street and pop artist Mikey’s latest collection. Sounds like pretty interesting, boxing, and video game driven work. If anything, looks fun.
Dawn Patrol is hoping to raise money to bring their surf concept on the road via a mobile surf shop and food truck. Seems like a rad idea! You have until May 30 to help them out.
While West last weekend for the Quadron show, we were wondering where some good places to get a bite in Little Osaka were. We sent out a Tweet to get some suggestions and we received a resounding response pushing for a visit to one place: Plan Check. The place has been buzzed about since it opened a little over a year ago and was on everyone’s list of “places to eat right now.” Taking the advice of everyone and their mother, we stopped in to the no reservation restaurant around 9:30PM on a Friday night and had one of the best and worst dining experiences in the city.
