Summer is in full swing and the city is heating up with fun things to do. To help you get to the good stuff, we’ve picked the best things to do this week in L.A.
Monday: An Evening with This Is Us
It’s Emmy season, which means it’s also the season of “FYC” events highlighting the achievements of all the biggest shows. Fans of tear-jerker This Is Us can RSVP to this celebration of the drama’s second season. A panel conversation moderated by Nellie Andreeva of Deadline Hollywood includes Dan Fogelman, Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson, and Chris Sullivan.
The crack-of-dawn yoga and dance party pops up at NeueHouse in Hollywood this time around. Yoga class starts at 5:30 in the morning (yes, really), and then DJs start spinning at 6:30. You’ll sip GT Kombucha’s newest flavor, nibble healthy breakfast bites, and enjoy some surprise performances, all before you even get to the office.
Jazz Is Dead pops up every few months, always curating a cool night of live music and DJ sets that explore the space where jazz and hip-hop flow freely into one another. For this edition, Lagos-born, Paris-based jazz drummer Tony Allen will be the featured player, sharing the stage with local hip-hop producer Ras G, a DJ set from Dan the Automator, and numerous other performers, all hosted by KCRW’s Anthony Valadez.
Thursday: Grease 40th Anniversary Celebration
Celebrate the 40th anniversary of the musical classic with a screening at the Wiltern, a live dance performance inspired by the movie, and a retro-themed after-party. Dressing in Rydell High-style threads is optional, but encouraged.
Friday: Alison Wonderland & Friends
Alison Wonderland is a dance music triple threat–DJ, producer, and singer–out of Australia. Trained as a classical cellist before a brief stint as a punk rock bass player, she eventually found her way to electronic music, and has quickly become a superstar of the scene.
