With the recent surge in temperature, there is no better way to unwind from a scorching day than to dance to eat the night away in the historic Chinatown district. With live performances from local acts and music spun by renowned KCRW DJs as well as cooking demonstrations from top chefs, food tastings and a ping pong tournament, Chinatown Summer Nights fuses the best elements of a hip party with a cultural festival that is a sure to be guaranteed good time for all. (Saturday, Chinatown)
Culver City Art Gallery Openings
Culver City might perhaps be the closest thing that the L.A. visual art scene has to a centralized location of galleries. With a plethora of new exhibit openings starting tomorrow, including singer Moby’s crowd photography extracted from his newest book to abstract pieces by artist KAWS, all within walking distance from one another, Los Angelenos are able to take a little breather from this car-centric city to go gallery hopping on foot. (Begins Saturday, various locations)
Shake your groove thing all the way to the Music Center Plaza this Saturday by joining other local dance enthusiasts for a festive Samba dance party. Located at the heart of Downtown L.A, the Music Center offers a fun and upbeat atmosphere as well as free beginner lessons that is geared for anyone with a willingness to make a few mistakes to learn. Grab a partner and samba the evening away at Dance Downtown. (Saturday, Music Center Plaza)
