Gallery 446 in Palm Springs is welcoming a little Coachella ready art show called ART and SOUND. Huge group effort that features everyone from Moby to Cisco Adler. It’s on view through May 4.
Need some festival travel help while at Coachella? Uber has some special programming for the occasion called #UberAllAccess which will give lucky riders some rad swag and “artist pickups.” WTF? Amazing. Happening April 11 through April 13 and April 18 through April 20.
When visiting a new city, what should you see? That’s probably the most important question on every traveller’s mind as the things you see can make or break a trip or experience of a city. London based design makers Herb Lester Associates think about that often and have made a collection of travel guides to assist travelers through illustrative charm. They’ve made a New York Doughnut map and a guide that can teach how to properly greet Chicago and a smart how-to for Seattle based on if it is raining or not. Super smart!
For Los Angeles, they decided to dig deep and give visitors the more seasoned parts of Los Angeles. The map is called How To Find Old LA and it seeks to do just that: take you around on a historic—Yet cool!—tour of the city. For those who think that LA is too young and without a history, this little guide will show you where our age is.
Going to Coachella? We have some news for you courtesy of Sauce LA: there is going to be some rad food programming at Coachella this year. Like what? Check it out after the jump!
Every time I’ve gone for a hike in Bronson Canyon, I always head straight and up the hill toward the Hollywood sign or Griffith Park joining ridge walk. There is some path that turns right early, before you even enter the park proper but I have never entertained the thought of going up it. You’d confuse it for some sort of park ranger road since there are some gates blocking it and it clearly is a strip that vehicles frequently travel: it doesn’t actually seem like a trail.
Well, it is—and it’s a special one. As many locals know, Bronson Canyon is home to the original Batcave and that early trail offshoot leads to it. It is perhaps one of the easiest hikes in town and the payoff is pretty extraordinary regardless of your thoughts on the superhero or Hollywood: it’s a special little destination that easily wows.
