There’s no excuse to be bored any night of the week when you live in L.A. Here’s our curated guide to some of the best of what’s going on around town.
Monday: Hanging Out with Paul Scheer featuring Jillian Bell, Constance Wu, David Chang, and Sharon Van Etten
Comedian and How Did This Get Made? host Paul Scheer has assembled a star-packed lineup for this month’s live show at Largo. The group of famous friends will have a freeform (and, in all likelihood, pretty hilarious) conversation about what’s going on in their lives and the world around them.
Tuesday: The Ready Player One Challenge
Get excited for the release of buzzy sci-fi flick Ready Player One with this immersive experience. A free ticket gains you entry to an elaborate construction at Hollywood and Vine, created by the team behind last year’s IT-inspired haunted house. You’ll explore interactive environments, pose for futuristic photo ops, play retro-style video games, and complete a choose-your-own-adventure style maze.
British-born David Hockney has come to be one of the visual artists most associated with Los Angeles. Still actively working at age 81 (and, earlier this winter, the subject of a retrospective at NYC’s Metropolitan Museum of Art that brought in massive crowds), Hockney moved back to L.A. a few years ago and found a new tool to use in his art practice: mobile digital devices. This show at L.A. Louver gallery, open from today through May 12, focuses on these innovative recent works.
Thursday: Dodgers Opening Day Game
It feels like it was just the World Series, but somehow it’s already the start of a new baseball season. We’re sure it’s going to be another action-packed one, starting with this late-afternoon Opening Day game which sees the team facing off with their intra-state rivals, the San Francisco Giants. The 2018 season has historic meaning for the team, too, as it marks the 60th anniversary of their arrival in L.A.
Take advantage of a rare chance to see Prince’s cinematic opus Purple Rain, shown in a restored 35mm analog print for the full nostalgic film experience. The screening marks the end of the month-long March Musicals screening series at beloved Los Feliz indie cinema The Vista.
