Diego Cardoso - 6th St Bridge

LA Art Walk is back!

We are big fans of the LA Art Walk in Downtown Los Angeles and have been attending this event on a regular basis for numerous years. If your not familiar with the Downtown Los Angles Art Walk event, it is a monthly event held on the second Tuesday of the Spring/Summer months and was started a few years back to showcase the numerous art galleries, local artists, restaurants, bars, gourmet food trucks, and local small business located in the Downtown Los Angeles area. The event always turns out a large crowd and is always a lot of fun with a lot to see and experience and is usually a great time and excuse to meet up with a group of friends.

bookcover227Tonights feature will be a group show about a novel The Freak Table, by Gavin Hignight. Various artists will exhibit their work with the subject being album art and their perception on classic punk and post-punk albums. Kind of scary to think that punk is already considered a classic genre. Bad Religion is still on tour, Dead Kennedys just announced some new tour dates, and the Misfits just released an album this year! Punk may be classic but it is definitely not dead! This exhibit will be held in the Lounge at 634 Spring St.

This exhibit will be held at GR Works studio on 4th St.

There are also dozens of galleries, restaurants, and bars to explore. Here are some that we will be be checking out tonight.
