Hot Tickets: Los Angeles

Here are this week’s hot tickets in the Los Angeles area. Check back every Monday at noon, PST for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

Thursday, January 14TV Tuesday presents The Other Glass Teat: More of Harlan Ellison on Television! – Experience Harlan Ellison’s TV writing with the Cinefamily! From their website:

One of America’s most prolific and dangerous writers, Harlan Ellison radicalized science fiction from the 1960s onwards with swirling, shouting, freaky, psychedelic and sexual visions realized across over 1,700 short stories, novellas, screenplays and essays. That would be enough for most — but Ellison is also one of the great TV writers, responsible for iconic episodes of The Outer Limits and Alfred Hitchcock Presents, to penning the most popular episode of the original Star Trek, and much, much more. And, somewhere in there, he even found the time to write “The Glass Teat”, a seminal work still considered one of the most important and scathing books ever written on the nature of television. Join guest moderator Josh Olson (Oscar-nominated screenwriter of A History of Violence) for a very special evening, as Harlan makes a very rare and highly spirited personal appearance at Cinefamily to discuss his love/hate relationship with TV, followed by a screening of several of his best episodes!

Hot Tickets: Seattle

Every Thursday at noon, Seattle time, Brown Paper Tickets will post upcoming events happening in Seattle. Here are hot tickets coming up next week. Check back for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

Saturday, June 4 The Tripwires, The Purrs and Llama It is hardly surprising that the Tripwires have leapt to the very forefront of Seattle’s burgeoning power pop ‘n’ roll scene, for this is indeed a quartet of considerable pedigree and startling showmanship. The group’s music translates brilliantly to the stage, and their rapport with an audience is unparalleled. The Purrs have a rich 10-year musical history, marked by appearances at Bumbershoot and MidPoint music festivals, weekend coast-to-coast jaunts to play CMJ, national tours, broken-down vans, a song featured on the HBO series “Californication,” heavy rotation on influential radio stations such as KEXP, WOXY, and SIRIUS, and hundreds of gigs with such talents as Okkervil River, A Place To Bury Strangers, The Wrens, Jesse Sykes and Film School.
