Finding Your Go-To Source of Information in LA
For all of us regular folk who are trying to take advantage of what the City of Angels has to offer, what’s the best source of information? Where do locals, for instance, go to find info on upcoming events in Los Angeles? Aside from what’s available here on whereLA.com, believe it or not, I have to say that the LA Weekly, with its breakdown of live shows, open mic performances, smaller movie openings and opinionated (as opposed to watered down) film reviews — is still my favorite source for what’s going on in Los Angeles. Not to mention the fact that it’s a tangible, page turning experience. And when was the last time you turned some actual pages as opposed to typing your query into a keyboard?
What’s Happening in LA Worth Checking Out
If you live in Los Angeles, or just visiting, something worth checking out is the comedy scene. Think about it: over 11,000 people come to Los Angeles every day, many of whom to pursue their dream of becoming famous. Many of these folks have actual talent and wind up on one of many reputable stages in Los Angeles, like The Laugh Factory (one of my personal favorite places to see stand-up comedy). If you want to know what’s happening in LA comedy wise, check out the improv scene at places like The Groundlings, the Peoples’ Improv Theatre, and Upright Citizen’s Brigade.
