Weekly WOAH | June 19-25

With a behemoth of events happening in sprawling LA … and in a[n art] world where glimmers of grandeur are often obscured amidst monotonous mediocrity— it can be helpful to consult a cynical, curated eye…  So every Thursday you can browse here for where to scope that local art and sound #whoa.  Weekly WOAH will cover happenings at all venues, particularly those at out-of-the-box and artist-run spaces.  Follow our blog to receive e-alerts when Weekly WOAH posts.  Drop us a line to share your event.
