LA Guestlist

Sourcing Los Angeles Culture

Our Favorite LA Events: The Week Of January 15th – January 21st featuring Reggie Watts, Ben & Jerry’s and Much More!

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 January 15th – January 21st. Something for you each and every night.

We’ll try not to break your wallet, either.

MONDAY, JANUARY 15th

  • Reggie Watts, Louis Cole & Michael Stegner

Head on over to Zebulon Cafe Concert to catch three musical and entertainment icons perform a range of emotionally varying, shoe-gazing electro, and ambient trip hop together. Apparently, “one guy in Bulgaria said it was the best show he’d ever seen.”

You can grab tickets here.
