Largely known for their frequent live music, Harvelle's low-lit interior is an intimate setting for enjoying drinks, gourmet food, and live entertainment, six days a week. Huddled over candle-lit tables, couples can enjoy craft cocktails from the bar or edibles from the kitchen such as the brandy pulled-pork and brie sandwich with caramelized onions or the roasted tomato and garlic flatbread.
The spirit of '70s hard rock thrives as brawny Los Angeles trio Loudhaus cranks up the amps, bangs the skins, and knocks soaring vocals through the ceiling of Brixton South Bay. Previously known on the LA rock circuit as Bartholomew, the band has emerged like a phoenix rising from the witness-protection program to reintroduce itself as Loudhaus. The flocculent threesome recently flooded The Viper Room with their undiluted power of songs such as “I Am Not Your King” and continues its mission to free rock 'n' roll of wispy shackles during an opening set for seminal pop-rockers dada. Best known for the hit “Dizz Knee Land,” dada celebrates the 20-year anniversary of its album Puzzle by playing the record in its entirety, first acting out the liner notes, then shrink-wrapping themselves.
The Lighthouse Cafe, recognized by the CityVoter Los Angeles HotList as Best Jazz Club in 2009, has captivated customers with sultry scores since the 1940s. Chefs complement crooning with impromptu harpsichord jam sessions and an eclectic menu of pub grub and breakfast offerings. The Heart Attack omelette, named after a classic B-movie featuring an onslaught of rampaging monster hearts, is a morning-time medley of ham, bacon, and smoked sausage ($8.95). Evening imbibers can mash molars on the buttermilk-battered chicken tenders with ranch dressing ($9.95) or the R.A.T. salad, a fresh federation of red onion, avocado, chopped tomatoes, garlic, lettuce, and white balsamic dressing ($8.95). Deploy the fire-fighting foam of a Purple Haze beer ($7.50/12 oz. bottle) to extinguish bicuspid blazes fostered by the spicy-cheese topped Bull Dog, a frankfurter bestrewn with mashed tater tots ($5.25).
Latin-Grammy-winning songsmith Andrés Calamaro charms ears with smooth rock tunes and tango-bred rhythms. Drawing on more than two decades of solo experience, as well as group music-making with Latin American rock outfit Los Rodriguez, Calamaro is able to shift tone and style with deft aplomb and the unpredictability of Two Face's jukebox selections. Love songs mix with odes to heartbreak and covers of classic tangos, keeping concertgoers captivated and eardrums on their toes. The concert will take place in the historic Hollywood Palladium, ensconcing listeners in the Art Deco splendor of the sprawling ballroom, providing plenty of space for tune-fueled dancing and impromptu chariot races.
Founded on the principle that movies work best as social experiences, The Cinefamily devotes itself to finding and sharing weird and wonderful films during limited-run screenings and one-off special events. Currently averaging 14 shows per week, the movie house enhances many screenings with celebrity appearances, live music performances, and social activities such as potlucks and snipe hunts. From the theater’s cushy seats and leather couches, guests can take in pristine views of horror films, cult classics, and even TV favorites. Past events have included a month-long film retrospective of Dennis Hopper’s illustrious acting career, a Czech film festival featuring a screening of the surrealist and ultimately banned Daisies, and a celebration of director John Cassavetes featuring appearances by his frequent collaborators Gena Rowlands and Ben Gazzara.
