Sourcing Los Angeles Culture

Our Favorite LA Events: The Week Of October 2nd – 8th featuring Kanye West, Matt Groening 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 October 2nd – 8th. Something for you each and every night.

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


  • LA Music Video Festival: Chet Faker’s ‘Missing Link’

Come check out the first official night at the Los Angeles Music Video Festival as the world premiere Chet Faker (Nick Murphy)’sMissing Link’ goes underway. The film will be followed with a Q&aA from Murphy and the film’s co-director, Johann Rashid.

You can still grab tickets here.


  • Haunters: The Art of the Scare

If you didn’t get your fill of movies the night before, come experience another free film from the fine folks over at Beyond Fest! Exploring the history, culture and evolution of haunted houses, Haunters is a documentary offering unique insight into what gets very little behind-the-scenes coverage. The film is followed by a Q&A with the director Jon Schnitzer and the film’s various subjects.

The movie starts at 9:45, but tickets will become available to pick up for free at The Egyptian Theatre’s box office starting at 6 PM.


  • Sound Off Silent Disco at Sherman Oaks Galleria

If you’re unaware of a silent disco (which would also prove your newbie status to this site), it’s a dance party where each guest is given their own pair of wireless headphones. You can join in on the fun of the tunes, or have a conversation with anyone you’d like without having to worry about talking over any loud music. At 7 PM, head over to Sherman Oaks Galleria, where a FREE silent disco will be held, featuring 3 hours of music, including food samples from nearby vendors.


  • Full Moon Hike at Franklin Canyon Ranch

Head over to Franklin Canyon Ranch this Thursday night to experience a hike up the path with a Volunteer Naturalist under the gleaming light of the full moon. The 2.8 mile hike is expected to take about 2 1/2 hours, starting at 7 PM.


  • Kanye Loves Kanye

You’re not going to find a much better night out than Kanye Loves Kanye, a Kanye West themed party being held in the Globe Theatre this Friday featuring West’s music all night, specially themed drinks, a My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy themed photo booth, giveaways and more.

The event is $10 to get in before 11PM with an RSVP, which you can take care of here.

Also acceptable are the first days of the LA Greek Festival, LA Podcast Festival, IndieCade, and various First Friday events.


  • Father John Misty

This Saturday, enjoy a night out with live music from songwriter Father John Misty’s stay at the Greek Theatre. If you’re unfamiliar with Misty’s work, you may remember him from his limited time as a member of the Fleet Foxes, or you can check out his most recent album, Pure Comedy to see what all the noise is about. You can also grab tickets here. 


  • An Evening with Matt Groening and Lynda Barry

Both known for their legendary cartooning work, come experience an evening with Lynda Barry, a lifelong fiend and MAJOR inspiration for Simpsons creator Matt Groening.
