Get into some ambience at Union Station Every Friday in March, Union Station will host ambient performers and DJs doing stuff you’ve definitely never heard before in a transit station, like “performances in which a room or space influences the unfolding organized and spontaneous sounds” and “meditation with traditional Nepalese singing bowl, acoustic bells, found sounds and modular synth.” Yeah. Gonna be out-there.

Get un-wet one last time at the Rain Room If you've put off going to LACMA's Rain Room -- where it rains everywhere except on you -- stop procrastinating: this is the last day you can experience it before it leaves you high & dry.

Scare yourself at the Great Horror Campout Presentation of Poltergeist Is it seriously time for outdoor movies to start again? Yes. Yes it is. And there’s probably no better way to get in the spirit of Poltergeist than to watch it in the still-chilly night at Griffith’s definitely haunted abandoned zoo.

Get way down on your Lunch Break The entire idea of this mid-day dance party is to let loose and then go back to work, though that’s going to be hard to do after not just getting down to tracks from Autograf, but also getting plied with food and cocktails from Perrier and Deep Eddy vodka.

Pork out at Cochon 555 The annual who-can-cook-a-pig-better event is back, and this year’s chefs include Union’s Bruce Kalman, Brooke Williamson of The Tripel, and returning champion Walter Manzke of Republique, although the real winner after eating 36 dishes of pork is... your future cardiologist.

Finally watch roller derby on the Westside at Rollergames You’ve probably heard about how fun going to roller derby is, but chances are, if you live on the Westside, you’ve never made the trek to their far-east headquarters to check it out. You’re finally in luck: the Rollergames World Series will actually be right next to the pier, including a sure-to-be-patriotic US v Japan bout on each day.
