This week's top events
Selena Sing-A-Long Midnight Screening
Celebrate the life of the late Mexican megastar as the Vista screens Selena with a sing-a-long and a ruffly costume contest. The showing of the Jennifer Lopez-starring biopic coincides with both Cesar Chavez Day and the anniversary of the singer's death. All proceeds will benefit Latino legal civil rights.
The Last Book Review
The interior of Downtown's whimsical, literary sanctuary, the Last Bookstore, practically begs for a regular stage show. Enter the Last Book Review: Comedians Ever Mainard and Caitlin Bergh recruit a lineup of storytellers, comics and authors to share humorous tales, personal essays and one very witty book review.
Drill: Los Angeles
See legendary post-punk outfit Wire celebrate the 40th anniversary of their first performance with this L.A.-only festival. They'll follow up three nights of performances by Julia Holter, Mild High Club, Laetitia Sadier and Fitted (Mike Watt, Bob Lee, Matthew Simms and Wire bassist Graham Lewis and guitarist Matthew Sims), with a special opening night acoustic set from Bob Mould.
International Pillow Fight Day Los Angeles
Fluff up your finest pillow and take part in this playful brawl complete with a DJ and food trucks. If you’re going to attend, the organizers make two requests on their Facebook event: first, that you bring along brooms, rakes and garbage sacks to help clean up the feathers and scraps that will inevitably litter the plaza once the fight concludes, and, secondly, that you only fight with soft pillows.
