Grilled Cheese and Wine Pairing
Friday, March 29 at 7:30pm
Andrew’s Cheese Shop in Santa Monica
In Andrew’s Cheese Shop’s newest event we have listened to the people and will be doing our famous grilled cheeses paired with some of our amazing and unusual wines for you. We will be serving plates with our decadent open faced grilled cheeses, each paired with an interesting/great/unusual wine. This is unlike any pairing we have done before and you do not want to miss it. It all starts with a starter salad with fresh greens, followed up by four open faced grilled cheeses each expertly paired with a unique wine and finished off with a (wait for it) float using Elio Perrone’s Bigaro, a sweet blend of Moscato and Brachetto. It doesn’t get any better than that!

SUMMERTIME: SUPERCOLLIDER + Students of Glendale Unified School District
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 30, 2024, 6-9pm
Brand Library & Arts Center in Glendale
Glendale Library, Arts & Culture and Brand Library & Art Center present SUMMERTIME: SUPERCOLLIDER + Students of Glendale Unified School District curated by Marcela Vieira, in collaboration with SUPERCOLLIDER, a Los Angeles-based artist collective. SUMMERTIME considers the landscape as the consequence of human production, the result of the transformation from its natural state. The topography has long been divided, fragmented, and modified according to social, economic, and aesthetic motivations. The artists in the exhibition present works with various materials and develop strange configurations, creating relationships between their works and the gallery space. SUMMERTIME forges a path that seeks to investigate the reality and possibilities of representation, using fiction as a way to imagine alternative landscapes. The exhibition title SUMMERTIME was inspired by the song “Summertime” written by George Gershwin, in particular the recording by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. Nostalgic but moody with surreal undertones, it became a guiding star for the thematic explorations in the works on view.

LA Intersections
Saturday, March 30 at 8:00 PM
The Broad Museum
Join The Broad after hours for L.A. Intersections, a two-part festival-style series celebrating organic music and spoken word scenes that have emerged in Los Angeles including punk, jazz, rap, noise, and the culturally infused experimentation led by a new generation of Filipinx artists. We’ve gathered iconic performers who shaped Los Angeles culture through The Desolation Center events, which inspired Burning Man, Lollapalooza, and Coachella; The World Stage, which has kept the language of jazz thriving for generations of musical and literary artists in South LA; The Good Life Cafe, which became synonymous for community within our grassroots hip hop and rap scenes; and Cathay De Grande and Raji’s, the city’s raucous punk clubs. In acknowledgement of the Filipinx artists whose contributions to the performance landscape of Southern California have flourished over the past decade, the eclectic lineup also features Jobel Medina, whose natural inclination for contradictions often merges spectacle with experimental, and Anna Luisa Petrisko, whose work is grounded in community and archiving histories, often collaborating with artists and friends to build relationships and cultural communion.Experience stages on two floors of the museum featuring live music, movement, and readings, check out the collection exhibition Desire, Knowledge, and Hope (with Smog) featuring 21 local artists, and catch the artist performance interventions in the galleries. L.A. Intersections presents the musicians, writers, and movement artists who have helped position Los Angeles at the vanguard of cutting-edge culture. Live music by Medusa the Gangsta GoddessAlice Bag + Kid Congo Powers in their debut live performance as a duet, Kamau Daaood and a Band of Griots featuring Dwight Trible, and Anna Luisa Petrisko with Lu Coy and Mark Golamco; readings by 2022 Pulitzer Prize finalist Will Alexander and Jerry Stahl (Permanent MidnightNein, Nein, Nein!); a video of the last interview with Sean DeLear, international scenester and frontman for the post-punk sensation Glue, along with a slideshow of his posthumously discovered photos; and dance performance work by Jobel Medina + Elliott “L” Sellers in the galleries.
