What's On

Klimt: The Immersive Experience

  • Exhibitions

You know the drill at this point: This traveling digital exhibition turns recognizable artworks from Gustav Klimt into wall-covering projections. The event comes from Exhibition Hub and Fever, who were behind Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience—which is not one of the two Van Gogh exhibitions that visited SoCal. As for the location, it’s an odd one (that it shares with a similar Monet event), at a shopping center in Montebello (1345 N Montebello Blvd) just off the 60.

Tupac Shakur. Wake Me When I’m Free

  • Exhibitions

Keep ya head up: There’s an official exhibition dedicated to the late, iconic West Coast rapper Tupac Shakur that’s headed to L.A. The Shakur Estate-sanctioned “Tupac Shakur. Wake Me When I’m Free,” will debut in Downtown L.A. on January 21, 2022 for a limited time, after which it’ll embark on a multi-city tour. “WMWIF” describes itself as “part museum, part art installation, part sensory experience.” Music will, of course, factor heavily into the experience, but so too will Shakur’s activism and art. The exhibition will also tell a parallel story of his mother, Afeni Shakur, a Black Panther who played a massive role in shaping her son’s outlook on life and art. Tickets go on sale November 12 at 10am, though you can secure your spot a little earlier if you opt for the front-of-line presale tickets on November 9. You’ll find the 20,000-square-foot space at the Canvas at L.A. Live (944 Georgia St). If, like us, you’ve never heard of it until now, you’ll find it off Olympic on Georgia Street, across from the JW Marriott.

Go Karting on Ice

  • Sport events

We thankfully don’t have to worry about icy winter driving conditions in L.A. But if you’ve ever wanted to know what it feels like to uncontrollably skid out on ice… then here’s the event for you? Go Karting on Ice will, you know, bring go-karting onto an ice rink in the Valley. According to events organizer Hidden, you’ll be tasked with gliding through an obstacle course and have the chance to partake in some off-ice games, too. Tickets start at $55 but most prime time slots cost $65—and that’s all for only 12 minutes on the ice. Like most of these sorts of overpriced pop-up sunts, there are a couple of caution flags worth pointing out: The event was originally slated for November 2021 but has since been pushed to February 2022, and that familiar “coming to a secret location” description is never reassuring. That said, thanks to its zip code tease (91402), we can fairly confidently deduce that it’ll be coming to the L.A. Kings Valley Ice Center in Panorama City.

Alhambra Lunar New Year Festival

  • Festivals

Scope out dozens food and craft booths while lion dances, kung fu demonstrations and other performances play out across a street fest and entertainment. This annual event takes place just off of Main Street, in front of Alhambra City Hall (100 S 2nd St).

Dance Camera West Film Festival

  • Festivals

Celebrate mankind’s most physical artform at Dance Camera West’s annual film festival. The two-part event takes place at the Theatre Raymond Kabbaz and the new 2220 Arts & Archives (formerly the Bootleg Theater), where you’ll find 13 programs of dance films.

Netflix is a Joke Fest

  • Stand-up

Netflix’s stand-up specials keep us cackling at home, but the streaming service’s ambitious comedy festival is nothing to laugh at. Initially announced for 2020, Netflix is a Joke: The Festival will stage shows from over 130 comedians at more than 25 L.A. venues in the span of just over a week. The lineup includes appearances, performances and conversations from Ali Wong, Aziz Ansari, John Mulaney, Conan O’Brien, Nicole Byer, Dave Chappelle, Larry David, David Letterman, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Eddie Izzard, Tig Notaro, Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias and so many more. Check out our full preview of the event.

Lightning in a Bottle

  • Music festivals

After years on the Central Coast, the annual event has made a move significantly closer to L.A., at Bakersfield’s Buena Vista Aquatic Recreational Area. Sure, it’s still a bit of a trek, but where else can you find a sustainable, vegetarian festival dedicated to equal parts music, food, art, yoga and wellness? Expect to do some serious soul-searching during this six-day retreat, all while immersing yourself in everything from a speaker series at the Lucent Temple of Consciousness to the old timey Grand Artique trading post. The 2022 lineup includes Glass Animals, Chet Faker, Purity Ring, Little Simz, GoldLink, Koffee, Big Freedia, Kaytranada, Empress Of, Rexx Life Raj, CHIKA, Jon Hopkins, Black Coffee, Four Tet and more.
