This Week’s L.A. Happenings: Crossroads Opens, Black Lips, AdultCon
NOW: Crossroads Opens On Melrose
Located in the space that once housed Dolce and Philippe Chow, the highbrow restaurant Crossroads woos the entertainment industry pack, so bring your headshot. Crossroads is designed by award-winning Studio Collective, so don’t be surprised to find a refined and inclusive space with luxury furnishings. Handcrafted chandeliers and an antique glasswork bar are highlights. Mediterranean small plates are complemented by chef-driven libations.
THURSDAY: Black Lips At El Rey Theatre
A little bit of garage band, part punk rock, and something White Stripes-ish, the Black Lips are on the road with Beach Party and Night Beats. You may remember when Val Kilmer joined them onstage and did some crazy shit. In any case, their shows have a reputation to be wild, and they’ll be at El Ray Theatre.
Black Lips, Beach Party, and Night Beats perform at El Rey Theatre (5515 Wilshire Blvd., Koreatown) on Thursday the 21st, 8pm. Tickets are $22. To find out more about El Rey, visit the listing at BlackBook Guides.
ALL WEEKEND: AdultCon At L.A. Convention Center
Get your frisky fix at AdultCon, happening all weekend long at the L.A. Convention Center. Tons of porn stars and exhibitors will be present to show their products and videos. Make room on your camera memory bank: people wait an entire year for this moment, but of course you and I are attending because we like the intelligent keynote speakers. Right.
