PREFUSE 73, FALTY DL, NOSAJ THING AT THE ECHOPLEX
WHEN: Friday, January 24th,
WHERE: 1822 West Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90026
WHAT: Whether or not Guillermo Scott Herren has multiple personalities to go along with his multiple monikers, the fact remains that the multi-faceted producer remains a staple in the avant-garde circles of hip-hop x electronica cross pollination. Breeding about a “machine gun funk” (sans Notorious B.I.G) in his work, Prefuse has earned himself a place rubbing elbows with the likes of Gaslamp Killer, Diamond Wrist Watches, Savath y Savalas and others generating that raw, gritty, genre-bending brand of bass music. | more

THE STYLIST LA SAMPLE SALE
WHEN: Saturday, January 25th, 11am-4pm
WHERE: 3793 Wade St, Los Angeles, CA 90066
WHAT: Stylist LA have long played that role of older sister lending party dresses, frocks and merch to many an Angeleno, and this weekend, fans can keep the goods for good at their sample sale. Score dresses from the likes of Parker NYC and LA-based brands like Naven, Nightcap, Paper Brown, Boulee, and many more, priced anywhere from $5 to $100. Also score some Bettini swimwear and Treadsmen tees while you’re at it. | more

ALEX PRAGER FACE IN THE CROWD OPENING RECEPTION
WHEN:
Saturday, January 25th, 6-8pm
WHERE: M+B | 612 N. Almont Dr. Los Angeles, California 90069
WHAT: Alex Prager brings her busy city inspired photographs to, well, our busy city. With elaborately staged crowd gatherings, Prager seems to be in nearly impossible vantage points that make her lens appear birdlike. Her exhibit will be on display until March 8th. | more

ryanhemsworth

RYAN HEMSWORTH AT THE ECHOPLEX
WHEN: Saturday, January 25th, 9pm
WHERE: 1822 West Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90026
WHAT: Ryan Hemsworth has had a grip on our sonically-inclined souls since 2010, and that grip just seemed to get tighter since the release of his 2013 album “Guilt Trips.” With a penchant for sampling and curating remixes like Frank Ocean’s “Thinkin’ ‘Bout You,” and Tinashe’s “Boss,” that rival the originals, Ryan Hemsworth has proven that sometimes, new is indeed better. | more

LAST GANG RECORDS X ZANEROBE POST GRAMMY AFTER PARTY
WHEN: Tuesday, January 28 at 10pm

We wish we could tell you who is on the surprise guest DJ list, but that would be taking all the fun out of the surprise — you’re just going to have to roll through and see for yourself.
