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.
11 a.m.-8 p.m. every Thursday

Bleached @ Amoeba Records
In preparation of a two-month long tour across the country, California punks Bleached are back from the almost-dead for an album release show at Amoeba Records in Hollywood. Their sophomore album, “Welcome The Worms,” is a ode to embracing proverbial darkness, strung together in 10 melodious songs. Catch their bound-to-be killer set, and be sure to ask the band to show off their 818 inner-lip tattoos.
