Time Out says

When the new Ace Hotel opened in early 2014, we didn't just gain a super hip hotel in an up-and-coming part of DTLA. We also got a jaw-droppingly beautiful 1920s movie house-turned-performing arts space, which has since billed an impressive lineup of performances, concerts, movie nights, lectures and more. The former flagship United Artists Theater is a 1,600-seat house with a beautifuly ornate, three-story lobby. When you visit, make sure to step out from under the balcony to admire the vaulted ceiling with thousands of shimmering mirrors.

What’s on

Pop-Up Magazine

Pop-Up Magazine is, well, a live magazine, but we realize that probably leaves more questions than asnwers. So just know this: Pop-Up Magazine is a consistently excellent stage show and you should go every single time it’s in town. So what is it exactly? Think This American Life with every audiovisual aspect performed live on stage. And if that means nothing to you: Pop-Up Magazine brings together eight or so writers, artists, photographers and filmmakers to premiere a story onstage set to original animation or a short movie and backed by the Magik*Magik Orchestra—with the occasional mime or medieval choir thrown into the mix. Like a magazine, each season’s show—typically at the Theatre at Ace Hotel—sequences its segments into a similar progression: A quirky slice-of-life story to break the ice, an often-devastating mid-section and a life-affirming finale. You’re inevitably going to want to talk about some of the stories long after the evening is over, and though the actual performances aren’t recorded, Pop-Up Magazine’s after-show goodnight email will point you in the right direction to find more from each speaker. This spring’s show includes Tracy Clayton, Kristen Radtke, Chanel Miller, Chloé Cooper Jones, Brooke Jarvis, Elena Passarello and Oscar Castillo.

Pod Save America (A)live And On Tour

  • TV, radio and podcast recordings

A few former Obama staffers, including chief speechwriter Jon E. Favreau, bring you a live version of their political podcast, Pod Save America. Expect plenty of laughs and candor from the dudes known for their “no-bullshit conversations.”

Neko Case

  • Rock and indie

Gifted alt country songstress and New Pornographers collaborator Neko Case is equally at ease fronting power pop gems and murder ballads alike. Over two decades into her career, her voice is still as haltingly spectacular as its ever been—and particularly powerful live.

Comedy Bang! Bang!

Scott Aukerman’s Comedy Bang Bang has invaded all sorts of comedy mediums—podcast, live performances and, formerly, a TV show and a regular stand-up show—and for good reason. The uproarious, improv-based show’s “open door policy” leads to classic in-character interruptions from Paul F. Tompkins, Lauren Lapkus and Jason Mantzoukas, to name a few.
