Things to do for April 27, 2016

The Weekender

In Person with Iggy Pop. Also, with Some New Tacos.

Full Metal Weekend

Wednesday
Iggy Pop Kindly Requests Your Presence
POP ART

Iggy Pop Kindly Requests Your Presence

Iggy Pop and Josh Homme are having a party tonight. No need for alarm, it’s just a civilized little art show showcasing 24 photographs and 8 mm film footage behind the making of their new album with the whole band in attendance. Still, anything could happen. Iggy being Iggy and all.

Jazz, Bowling and Vinyl
ALL THAT JAZZILLA

Jazz, Bowling and Vinyl

The live jazz party known as Jazzilla will hold its last event at Spare Room tonight. Come see Toro y Moi’s Jordan Blackmon spin an all-vinyl set with Dublab’s founder on percussion, followed by twin jazz duo Mattson 2. And wear funny bowling shoes. Super important.

Apr 27, 8-11pm, no cover, Jazzilla at The Spare Room, 7000 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, reserve at 323-769-7296

Friday
Whiskey. Pasta. Power Lunch.
REAL AMERICAN MIRO

Whiskey. Pasta. Power Lunch.

Downtown’s got a new wood-and-marble-covered power spot to get you through lunch. It’s called Miro, like the Spanish painter. And it serves rare whiskey alongside things like beef cheek pasta and lamb sausage pizza. Its whiskey-and-pasta period really speaks to today.

Now soft-open for lunch, Mon-Fri, 11am-2:30pm, Miro, 888 Wilshire Blvd, Downtown, reservations required at 213-988-8880, see the menu

Saturday
You’ll Eat This Weekend. You’ll Eat Well.

Let’s Get Ready to Bacon
TOO PIG TO FAIL

Let’s Get Ready to Bacon

Bacon. That’s the theme of this festival in Downtown on Sunday. Bacon. So you’ll find lots of that in both sweet and savory forms. Plus the chance to experience new concepts like Miro and Baldoria. But mostly, it’s just bacon. Lots of bacon.
