Like Nina Simone, Cal Ripken, and the congregation of Bull Moose, Ken Burns is an Apple Pie of Americana. In a world that’s increasingly scared to be earnest and vulnerable, it takes guts to embrace and explore the contradictory American Experiment without any added winks or rhetorical backflipping. 
His newest dip into the waters of our past takes on three of a clan who helped shape these United States through the 20th century: The Roosevelts, who covered everything from human rights to stuffed animals to an attempted coup that reads like it was conceived by someone carrying around too many copies of Catcher in the Rye. Tonight at our cathedral to moving pictures and human ingenuity, Mr. Burns and PBS will premier his latest effort. And in a magic little flicker of fortune, we’ve got a select few seats left for the show.

Donning a pair of Vans, sockless — feeling the padded collar wrap your ankles, feet not too hot and not too cold, toes feeling out their protection from the world — no matter where you slip in to them, a little part of you gets to be off the wall as they say. Your feet, at least they’re sunny and SoCal 75 and maybe there’s a little beachy sand to make it authentic.
Our first skate shoes were Old Skool Vans. We saw Minor Threat’s Ian Mackaye wearing them going to the local record store. And it seemed like all the cool women and men that were older than us, that had been into cool things for a long time, they were always wearing a pair in a way that looked just right and timeless. They were our secret teachers. We took notes: bands, hair, the cut of clothes, books they read and films they saw, picked up their language and tried to make our own version of ourselves with these things. 
Well, an army might march on its stomach, but our people working hard on the ground at Ace DTLA work on their feet. We thought their own special Vans would help them keep things breezy.
To celebrate our Atelier Ace x Vans Era 59 collaboration, we got all romantic about our days skating in the sun, wind in our hair. We teamed with Vans to screen Dogtown and Z-Boys in The Theatre for anyone who wanted to go, and we made a skate game, and we’re giving away prizes to the top five scorers of that very game. Now it’s time to let the winners know, to give them their just rewards: Keeng-Shilo G., Brittni L., Riely W., Elias R., Mike W. Winners: you’ll be hearing from us soon via e-mail.

Downtown Los Angeles
God is in the house.
His reputation and mustache precede him. Nick Cave brings his Bad Seeds to The Theatre at Ace Hotel July 12 — burning down the house with his recent masterpiece Push The Sky Away. We’re losing our minds over here at the chance to host one of music’s most respected elder statesmen — because fortunately in Cave’s case, respected isn’t the same as respectful. 
Tickets hit the street Friday May 9, but lucky for us, we’ve got a special pre-sale code for our friends to make sure we all get to share the experience.
Pre-sale starts today at 10am. Use the code SKYAWAY.

We’re happy to say that The Theatre at Ace Hotel, formerly the historic United Artists Theatre, opens soon. We’ve been lovingly and meticulously restoring the place, and on Valentine’s Day we’ll be swinging the doors open with a performance of arguably the greatest break-up album of all time: Spiritualized’s Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space.
It’s a landmark moment for all involved. The group revisits the iconic album in all of its gospel splendor with a 30-piece orchestra and choir, performing the show for the first time since 2010’s now-legendary revival at Radio City Music Hall — and for the first time ever on the West Coast. We couldn’t think of a more fitting way to welcome the world to our new home. 
The Theatre opens in the historic Broadway Theatre District next door to Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles, opening January 6 with a handful of rooms available to book now.
Pre-sale tickets for Spiritualized will be available to Ace’s A-List subscribers this Wednesday, December 18, with sales to the public beginning on Thursday. More information and tickets can be found at acehotel.com/theatre.
