Good Food and KCRW Music Present Sound Bites

DO: Sound Bites

Peanut butter and jelly, coffee and cream, beans and rice, Hall and Oates — all famous pairings. Know what else goes well together? Food and music! We dare you to imagine a backyard BBQ without a single tune. A clambake in total silence. A taco stand with nary a tuba. You’re imagining in gray, aren’t you? Now turn up the color and join us for Sound Bites, a celebration of food and music with Evan Kleiman, Anne Litt, John Gourley (Portugal. The Man.), and Roy Choi. It’s gonna be flames and guitar licks! 

P.S....take a quick survey when you RSVP to get a cool gift while supplies last.

Earth Day Virtual Summit


Earth Day week is upon us! The official date is this Thursday, April 22nd, but events are happening all week in celebration of, and out of concern for, our big blue rock. On Wednesday, The Nature Conservancy is hosting a virtual summit focused on the “Determining Decade” featuring conservation leaders, scientists, policymakers, and advocates. Speakers include such heavy hitters as Jane Goodall, Alexandra Cousteau, and Dolores Huerta. Don’t miss it! Bonus: the event will be captioned in English and Spanish.

GET: Fried Chicken

Evan Kleiman recently embarked on a noble and treacherous journey —  to find Southern California’s top fried chicken shacks. She reports back on her favorites broken up into five (or six) categories: classic, hot, Japanese, Korean, sandwiches, and miscellaneous. One timely tip, Chef Kuniko of Pikunico will be collaborating with Chef Jihee Kim of Perilla LA this weekend. And if you’re ready to skillet-fry your own chicken, consult Jonathan Gold’s “Barefoot” recipe.

KCRW Lost Notes Season 3
Live Talks Los Angeles

ATTEND: Live Talks LA

In honor of the 50th anniversary of NPR’s first transmission and the debut of All Things Considered, Live Talks Los Angeles presents a virtual conversation with the women who helped blaze the trail for public radio and female journalists. Author Lisa Napoli will speak with Susan Stamberg, Nina Totenberg, and Linda Wertheimer — three of the women who are the focus of her new book, Susan, Linda, Nina & Cokie: The Extraordinary Story of the Founding Mothers of NPR. Don’t miss the extraordinary volume of tenacity, experience, and intelligence in that room!

Made in L.A. 2020

SEE: Made in L.A. 2020: a version

”Wonder Twin powers, shape of a cool exhibit!” is what the Hammer and The Huntington said when they partnered up for this unique endeavor. Next batch of tickets drop tomorrow morning for a chance to check out works by 30 LA-based artists presented at both institutions — two versions that make up the whole. Installations, videos, films, sculptures, performances, and paintings, all free with advance reservations and limited capacity. Worth the early rise.
