You need more punk rock in your life, especially if that punk rock is from an SF-based parody website with headlines like “Female Bassist Suddenly Realizes Love Song Is About Her” and “Metalhead Can’t Find Single Non-offensive Shirt to Wear to Airport.” The Hard Times hosts a night of stage diving and standup from Kyle Kinane, Ryan Long, Maggie Maye, and Madison Shepard.
Friday - Saturday
Mar 31-Apr 1
Just when you thought you had discovered every type of porn in existence (through academic research, of course), up pops a new, fun, kinky short film festival curated by Dan Savage. Shorts include The Little Merman, Camping Trip, and I'm Not Poly But My Boyfriends Are.
Saturday
Apr 1
The mission of the 420 games is a noble one: de-stigmatize the millions of people who use cannabis as part of a healthy and responsible lifestyle. Support the cause with a 4.20-mile (of course) fun run, a beer tasting garden from Lagunitas Brewery, educational speeches, and live tunes.
Saturday
Apr 1
The Santa Anita Park Winner's Circle BBQ Competition is part of the Kansas City BBQ Society’s sanctioned four-meat Championship Series, and it does not disappoint. Put on your judging pants and sample smoked chicken, pork ribs, pork shoulder, and beef brisket from some of California’s up-and-coming pitmasters.
Saturday
Apr 1
The first rule of any pillow fight club is to talk about said pillow fight club. So show up to Pershing Square with a soft (can’t emphasize this enough, SOFT!) pillow, and expend your energy smacking around friends and foes to the sounds of DJs, with intermittent food truck breaks thrown in.
Saturday - Sunday
Apr 1-2
Griffith Park hosts a speakeasy party where you can learn to dance the Charleston, Argentine tango, and early swing -- they’ll be easier after a few Prohibition-era cocktails. The Jazz Age celebration also has vintage vendors, a best dressed contest, and a merry-go-round dance-off.
Saturday - Sunday
Apr 1-2
Spring has sprung in Los Angeles -- you just may not have noticed, since it’s habitually 75 degrees. Nevertheless, Artisanal LA has a plan for 100+ indie makers, crafters, and chefs to fill you with samples and demos to your heart's content.
