The Best Things to Do This Week in L.A.

Lizzo, Lauryn Hill, Susan Rice sits down with Eric Garcetti, and more

Welcome to a new week, full of new opportunities to enjoy all the music, film, and other fun things to do in Los Angeles.

Vegan Fashion Week

Monday, October 14

We’ve come a long way since fur coats were the height of style. Vegan Fashion Week offers designers an opportunity to show of stunning garments made without the use of any animal products whatsoever. Runway shows on Monday and Tuesday are open to the public (tickets $40-$120).

JPEGMAFIA at Teragram Ballroom

Tuesday, October 15

Baltimore-based rapper JPEGMAFIA turns the frenzy of his enthusiastic fans into one of the most energetic live performances you’re likely to see. But it’s not all moshing and jumping around; his intelligent, moody music has made him a critical favorite.

Ms. Lauryn Hill & H.E.R. at the Hollywood Bowl

Wednesday, October 16

Enjoy one of the last Hollywood Bowl shows of the season with this pair of powerhouse women. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was released over two decades ago, yet still sounds fresh and essential. H.E.R. was barely born when Hill’s record dropped, but her modern R&B shows her elder’s influence–as well as her own unique stylings.

Ambassador Susan Rice in Conversation with Mayor Eric Garcetti

Thursday, October 17

Mayor Garcetti sits down with Susan Rice, who served as National Security Advisor and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations under President Obama. The occasion for the conversation is the release of her new memoir, Tough Love: My Story of the Things Worth Fighting For.

Lizzo at Hollywood Palladium 

Friday, October 18

America’s sweetheart, Lizzo, lands in L.A. for the first night of a three-show run at the Palladium. Expect an extravaganza of self-love, positivity, flute playing, and legendary twerk skills. If you can’t make tonight’s concert, the show continues on October 20 and 21.
