Pride is coming. And everyone is invited. This year we’re tickled all colors of the rainbow that JD Samson is teaming with us to pop the pride parties for our locals in LA / LDN / NYC / PSP. JD’s been a pardner to Ace here for a hot minute, and it’s with worlds of pleasure that we work together again. The cherry on top: JD went out and made a special mixtape for our aural delight. Participate. Be active. Let’s be out and let’s do this. #everyonespride

Our beloved Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles — once the Texaco building — makes a cameo in this original Superman clip. We’re guessing it’s George Reeves starring in Superman and the Mole Men.

Thanks Kev and Don for the tweet.

The Avant garde filmmaker’s filmmaker, Kenneth Anger made the Thelemic masterpiece Lucifer Rising in England and Egypt over an extended period from the mid-’60s – ’70s. The Theatre, sponsored by Martin Guitar, and our pals at cinespia reunite to bring it back to the big screen tonight, with a special appearance by Los Angeles’ favorite Occult octogenarian himself. Lucky all of us.

The gesamtkunstwerk is alive and thriving. LA Chapter’s Exquisite Surfaces x Commune tiles honor the Viennese secession and issue a loving send-up to the Modernists who forever altered Los Angeles in the ‘20s. They function as angle-driven visual consorts rather than adornments, suggesting you follow their broken lines from the restaurant’s floor, across its walls to the ceiling and back down again. Like petroglyphs from a history that’s yet to be written.

Claire L. Evans looking like a million bucks in Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles’ photo booth.
Claire’s CV runneth over: she fronts utopia-pop outfit YACHT, is the editor-in-chief of the recent reboot of beloved science journal OMNI, and — along with YACHT co-hort/life-partner Jona Bechtolt — recently introduced the nimble, L.A.-centric events app 5 Every Day. Happy she was able to sit still for a few minutes.
