November has been quite the month—think intolerable Thanksgiving dinner conversations, crazy conspiracy theories, wild windstorms—but now it's time to reflect. We chose our favorite memories from the past month; these are their stories... (DUN DUN).
Erin: As part of Red Bull Sound Select’s 30 Days in LA series, I saw Flume perform at The Mayan. I had seen him this past summer at FYF and was blown away, but being just a few feet away from The Mayan’s stage while he did his thing was a whole other experience. The visual effects he uses to accompany his music make it a completely immersive experience, so much so that I could ignore getting elbowed in the face and having multiple drinks spilled on me. Flume 4ever.
Cezara: I can't think of a better way to kick off a week than the Monday I spent at the LA Zoo. It was nice to spend some time with real-life monkeys as opposed to the ones I usually have to hang with in the office (sorry guys, but you're just not as cute). It was my first time there, but now that Zoo Lights are back, I can't wait to go again soon!
Seth: This month I had the distinct honor of witnessing Justin Bieber in action at the Staples Center. Even from the upper deck, surrounded by thousands of screaming teen girls, his douchey-ness was as in-your-face as a certain viral, paparazzi peen shot. He knows that his life is a movie and everyone's watching, and I've got to say—it's a near Oscar-worthy performance. All hail the Biebaissance!
Michael: I’m a sucker for bright lights and local history, so I gravitated toward the Museum of Neon Art’s sneak peek like a moth to a… neon museum. The neon clocks and signs on display were just enough of a tease to guarantee that I’ll be back for its official opening.
Kate: I (along with the rest of the East Side) checked out the new DTLA Whole Foods. It's an Instagram wonderland, but also boasts some seriously delicious cheese, beer and wine selections—good for the holidays, and in my book, all days.
Erick: What's better than a highly-stylized film depicting a 1950s forbidden lesbian love affair? Nothing. I know from experience, after watching "Carol" at the AFI film fest in Hollywood. The only thing more on-point than the Egyptian Theatre at sunset were Cate Blanchett's cheekbones, which alone deserve a standing ovation.
