Losanjealous Benevolent Society Events: June 8 – 14
The Losanjealous Benevolent Society gathers a weekly list of strange happenings and fun events in LA–the more ridiculous, the better. Visit our events calendar for the full list. And if you’re organizing or know of an event you think belongs on the list, send us info at email@example.com.
Art Dorks Collective @ thinkspace
Our work is really not easy to define. The influences range from the 1980’s to the 1880’s and we each bring a different feel to the mix. If I can say one thing about our work, it is that it is a celebration of the things we love as people. What else should you make art about? Through Fri 7/6.
Charisma @ Machine Project
Charisma has been reviewed as “genuinely nutso” and “Princess Mononoke meets Kafka.” Aaron Gach described it to us as “pretty bizarre in a good way” and “sort of David Lynch-ian.” There will probably be beer.
Harold and Maude @ Hollywood Forever Cemetery
Indisputably one of the most beautiful and romantic but quirky films of the seventies. A young man obsessed with death and an older woman bent on living life to its fullest, find each other and start an unlikely romance. Gates at 7:30 pm. Film at 9:00pm. $10 donation tickets available at gate. small town talk spins before and after the show.
Ill Morphology @ Copro Nason Gallery
Featuring the paintings of Anthony Ausgang, Thomas Han and Joe Ledbetter. These artists each depict parallel cartoon realities each inhabited by a different crew of morphed-up animal characters. Although each artist has a unique style, the end result is a surprisingly cohesive universe. Through Sat 6/30.
