LA Guestlist

Sourcing Los Angeles Culture

Our Favorite LA Events: The Week Of September 11th – 17th featuring LA Zoo, LACMA 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 September 4th – September 10th. Something for you each and every night.

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


  • Tripped: A Hallucinatory Immersive Experience

Come over to Think Tank Gallery this Monday for a taste of what Ingenious VR has in store. As the first day of a very limited run, you will be introduced to Tripped, a colorful, vibrant, engaging VR experience that is absolutely sure to trip you out. We have yet to see the show for ourselves, but with the potential offer of the ability to fly, superhuman strength, and more, along with the cosign and inclusion from our friends at Think Tank, we can’t imagine it’s something you’ll want to miss out on.

You can grab tickets here (and you should, fast – this is definitely the type of thing that will sell out FAST).


  • Artist Walkthrough of “A Universal History of Infamy” at LACMA

Have you ever found yourself in an art exhibit, scratching your head, wishing you could just ask the artist what they were going for? Well this Tuesday, at Los Angeles County Museum of Art of all places, you can do just that. Join eight artists including the likes of Mariana CaGo Deball and Josefina Guilisasti as they walk you through their exhibition at LACMA.

Tickets are free, and can be grabbed here


  • Suppertime W/ GIRL CRAZY

This Wenesday, come check out one of the best comedy variety shows available in the Los Angeles area! Featuring Girl Crazy, Lady Parade and more, Suppertime involves an evening of dialogue and comedy between its various performers. Just head on over to The Clubhouse – doors open at 8, with the show starting at 8:30.

The best part? Admission is completely free.


  • Downtown Art Walk

If there were an LA starter pack, it would most definitely include the DTLA art walk, as well as LA’s night market scene (as well as dated internet references). Luckily, you get to fit right into the hazy, pseudo-intellectual mold and experience all the art district has to offer with a late night of galleries, drinks, music, artisan vendors, and much more! Which we say lovingly.

Just head on down to the Downtown Art Walk Lounge on Spring Street beginning at 6 PM to get started. You can also check out more info on their official website.


  • Roaring Nights at the LA Zoo

Ever wondered if after the LA Zoo closes, it becomes a Night at the Museum-eqsue free for all, where all the animals roam free and fight for supremacy and glory? I haven’t, but now we can all find out for sure this Friday when the zoo opens up its doors past 6 PM and invites the population to explore what it has to offer! This will all include some of LA’s best food trucks, DJ’s, lawn games, and more. The theme of the night is 80’s vs 90’s – and only those 18+ are allowed in.

You can snag tickets here


  • Romeo + Juliet at Hollywood Forever Cemetery

If you haven’t gotten a chance to check out Cinespia’s summer movie lineup at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, this is your last chance to squeeze your way in (before they start up their Fall, spooky offerings). Come experience Romeo + Juliet at one of LA’s most beloved attractions, under the night sky.

You can grab tickets, and more info here


  • Grindhouse 2 W/ Director Larry Bishop

If you haven’t gotten a chance to check out Quentin Tarantino’s New Beverly theatre, this is the perfect oppurtunity. Come check out a screening of Grindhouse 2, which features Machete and Hell Ride. The best part? Hell Ride director Larry Bishop will be there for a Q&A afterwards.

You can grab tickets here.
