KROLL SHOW FREE SCREENINGimages

Includes a conversation with creator/star Nick Kroll. Writer/performer Nick Kroll brings his effortless ability to essay character to the second season of his Comedy Central series, Kroll Show. He uses comedy for both its powers to amuse and inform in his fast-moving half-hour program. Filmed with several cameras, and without the messy intrusion of a laugh-track, Kroll Show circumnavigates the hills (Beverly) and valleys (San Fernando), as its creator star – supported by an able squad of actors – uses the glazed-eye style of reality TV as his canvas. And consequently, Kroll brings his (and our) attentions to the hilariously self-absorbed denizens of the LA Basin. The first two episodes of the upcoming sophomore season will screen, and Nick Kroll will be in attendance for a conversation afterwards.

2013, color, digital | Created by Nick Kroll; with Nick Kroll, John Daly, Andy Milokanis, Sarah Damph, Jenny Slate, John Mulaney, Tess Broussard

SOCIALIZE AT THE OTHER ROOMother room
Craig Weiss, the entrepreneur, visionary and owner of The Otheroom loves city dwellers and nightlife. He wanted to give them all an atmosphere shaped by his passions-independent music, are, handcrafted beer and boutique wines from around the world.
At the core of the other room is a very solid beer menu–16 different craft brews, ranging from Stone to Saison Dupont. The taps are connected to kegs via surgical grade tubing, which is out of site, out of mind.  As you might expect from a chic locale, most of the brews are European, and they of course have the two mandatory selections: Stella and Chimay.
They have another 50-plus options by the bottle, including some “big bottle” options, where the sizes run from 11oz to 20oz (750 ml). They even have some organic beers, plus a gluten-free Amber Ale.
The Otheroom is the perfect place to come out and relax and have a drink, while mingling and getting to know new people! Its okay to come by yourself…you won’t be by yourself for very long!
Food and drink are at your own expense.

Nik Dudukovic, Toronto-based illustrator and animation designer, will be featured at “The Secret Clubhouse,” his very first show in California at Scion AV.

Utilitarian quality goods that honor the history of clubhouses will encompass jackets, t-shirts, flag, blanket, zippos, hats, notebooks, etc. A series of paintings that take their cues from the items (and their graphics) will also be produced.

Many municipalities don’t accept electronics into their recycling streams which is why Ewaste drives are so important so please come down and recycle your electronics this weekend at the North Hollywood Farmer’s Market!

JAZZ AT OFF THE VINE PRESENTS REZA SALEHreza

Reza’s simple, integrated approach emphasizes chord progressions, riffs and harmonies, resulting in distinctively intelligible, enjoyable music that everyone can appreciate. His compositions and performances leave listeners and audiences impressed and delighted. With recordings of his work and performance clips available on YouTube, Facebook and featured on several podcasts, Reza’s enthusiasm speaks for itself.
Originally from Indonesia, Reza became interested in playing bass when he was 12. After his father, the late Usmawi Saleh, challenged him to learn as many rhythmic variations of the 12-bar Blues as possible, and with his older brother, Emir, playing piano, Reza was captivated. With after-school jamming as an everyday practice with his family, Reza developed impeccable skills. By the time he caught an Earth, Wind and Fire performance–which convinced him that music could be thrilling both to create and consume–Reza committed to music as a way of life.
He then came to America, where he was named the Long Beach Jazz Festival’s Best Jazz Star Search Artist in 2006. Reza has since played the festival circuit and opened for top acts, including Peter White, Ray Parker, Jr., and the Brand New Heavies.
Reza, who still plays his Yamaha bass, has just released his debut album, FIRST STEP.

$5 cover – 2 drink minimum – Seating is limited so make reservations or call ahead.

The City of West Hollywood through its Arts and Cultural Affairs Commission proudly presents the 2014 Winter Sounds, a concert performance series taking place in indoor locations in West Hollywood between January 11 and March 8 of 2014. The year’s line-up of performances is an eclectic mix of jazz, bluegrass and classical music.
Josh Nelson, born and raised in Southern California, maintains an active and creative schedule as a jazz pianist, composer, teacher, and recording artist. At 35 years old, he has already performed with some of the most respected names in jazz, including Natalie Cole, Anthony Wilson, and  Ernie Watts, to name a few. Josh has recorded for many albums, films, and TV shows, but also makes time for his own projects: First Stories (1998), Anticipation (2004) and Let it Go (2007, Native Language Music) all garnered international critical claim. Josh’s 4th album, I Hear a Rhapsody (2009), featured Josh’s musings on new original music, standard interpretations, and reinventions of pop tunes. His most recent record, Discoveries (2011), pairs classic sci-fi movies with new compositions for a brass and wind ensemble.
