Winter, Billy Changer @ the Hi-Hat in Highland Park

Southern California is constantly curating new sound. The rest of the world looks west, to us, for bringing undiscovered talent to the surface. Both rooted in Echo Park, Winter and Billy Changer are refreshing examples of familiar sound. Winter is a four-piece shoegaze band with elements of electro-dream pop, and Billy Changer (from Corners) who hones in on something chaotic in his rock ‘n’ roll reimagining. Don’t miss these rising acts, along with Moaning and Growl.

Don’t Look Back: The 1990s @ MOCA (The Geffen Contemporary/ Museum of Contemporary Art)

The 1990s was more than grunge and MTV. The decade ultimately changed the discourse of race, class, gender and sexuality in society. This exhibit further visualizes this. “Don’t Look Back” at MOCA is broken down into several different installments and features works by Paul McCarthy, Sarah Sze, Catherine Opie and Cady Noland. This is a must for the art/history buff.
