Hey, we get it – Los Angeles is a big city. Not only are there endless opportunities for coffee stops, beach visits, and celebrity sightings, but the metropolis also boasts an absolutely massive catalogue of events. Even on a daily basis, the list of things to do can certainly seem a little overwhelming at times.
Somewhere, among the hazy smog that engulfs the city, lies a hotbed of culture and entertainment – you just have to sift through the haze to find what’s best. That’s why we over at LA Guestlist have done the work for you and put together the seven hottest, freshest, and most Los Angeles events we could find for you in the week of December 11th – December 17th. Something for you each and every night.
We’ll try not to break your wallet, either.
MONDAY, DECEMBER 11th
Every Monday, the popular Los Angeles bar The Pattern opens its doors for Mad Mad Mondaze, one of its craziest nights featuring some of their best resident DJ’s. This week, returning members include Flip Lynch and Kenny Summit, owner of Good For You Records.
Admission is free. Night kicks off at 8 PM, and goes until 2 AM.
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 12th
California native spoken word and hip hop artist Watsky has slowly been working on creating a music video for all 18 tracks off his album ‘X INFINITY,’ eventually weaving together into one large film. He’s finally completed that goal, and is now going to play the whole album live, at our friend The Theatre at Ace Hotel with a full band, synced up to the videos. Probably worth a watch.
You cab grab tickets here.
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 13th
Alternative outfit Grizzly Bear will be gracing the stage of The Wiltern this Wednesday, following the release of their 2017 project Painted Ruins. Grizzly Bear puts on a fantastic show, and will definitely be worth the price of the ticket.
You can grab tickets here.
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 14th
Every second Thursday of the month, Artwalk DTLA opens up, for you to walk around and explore late into the night. The walk features street artists, food trucks, vendors, and plenty more that will fill your time (and hopefully not empty your wallet).
You can kick off the walk on 4th and Spring, 90012, at Broadway Center Parking. The night kicks off at 6PM.
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 15th
Interrupting our regularly scheduled programming of secret parties, movie screenings, and art outings for a gigantic, outdoor lightsaber battle, because we think you need this. Saber Battle LA 2017 will be a gigantic gathering at Perishing Square, where you will be divided into one of two teams, before a huge, lasting battle between good and evil commences.
You can grab a ticket here, which includes a three-foot lightsaber.
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 16th
If you have never seen David Lean’s masterpiece ‘Lawrence of Arabia,’ do yourself a favor and head over to the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood for an experience you will never have similarly again. Playing a brand new, 70MM film print of the film, this is guaranteed to be a larger-than-life viewing.
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 17th
If you haven’t gotten a chance to stop by Los Angeles’ newest pop up, this is a fantastic day to do so. Located at Los Angeles’ Museum of Architecture and Design, the museum exhibits an array of failures throughout the last century from attempted innovators. The museum includes objects such as Hasbro’s terrifying ‘Little Miss No Name’ doll, to ‘Trump: The Game.’
The pop up will be in LA until February 4th. You can get tickets here.
