The Series Live Arts Exchange LAX Nicole Disson 2

If you were to think of the perfect Los Angeles art experience, what would it be? You might jump to a gallery show or even think that a film would encompass what the city is. But is that really it? You would think since the city is so big and full of so many different ecosystems that the most representative LA art experience would in fact be a mashing of every artistic discipline possible.

That’s what THE SERIES attempts to do. The performance based events are curated by local performer Nicole Disson who brings in a mixture of music and dance and spoken word and more into one space, for one night. It is an incredible local happening and, to kick off the sprawling dance and performance festival LAX, THE SERIES is kicking things off tonight. To get an idea of what to expect and how this collaborative art experience came to be, we had a chat with Nicole about THE SERIES.

This sounds like it could be a troubling pairing, yes—but the collaboration is absolutely spectacular.

Owen Pallett El Rey Los Angeles

Have you seen the movie Her? It’s a undoubtedly a new LA classic film, one that shows off the city as this wondrous and somewhat utopian city. It’s well made and looks good and also sounds good too. A big part of it “sounding” good is new classicist and avant pop musician Owen Pallett‘s contributions. The Canadian composer is very talented and highly regarded and is actually coming to town next week, to play a show on September 13 at the El Rey. Are you a fan of his or curious to see what he’s all about? You’re in luck: we have a pair of tickets to the show to giveaway, courtesy of our friends over at Goldenvoice.
