Scent Bar is carrying an exclusive scent, inspired by a very basic element in the human body: BLOOD Concept perfume. Seemingly something thought up by a pop star, the unisex scent conjures up earthy scents under the guise of A, B, O, and AB blood types. The perfume isn’t being sold at very many places thus, if you are craving blood for your body, go to Scent Bar. They have it all!

The Hammer’s has a new exhibit arriving Sunday, chronicling the art and black Los Angeles through the sixties through the eighties. The show is Now Dig This! and is giving a voice to a community that, before now, seemingly have not had a voice in the Los Angeles art community. Like ASCO, the exhibit is a part of Pacific Standard Time, which may prove to be the best thing to happen to the art scene here.

Clutch your pearls and get ready to shriek all night!
The Los Angeles Times has a glowing review of the new West Hollywood Library. The library opens this Saturday, October 1, and looks really, really great. We’ll be sharing our thoughts on it soon but, for now, get a preview of one of the city’s coolest new architectural spots.
In Mid-November, Chris Burden‘s Metropolis II is coming to LACMA. This will be the first exhibit for the piece after Burden’s hard work for four years to complete the piece. The piece, which is a large, kinetic, constantly moving sculpture that is a part small city and part toy car race track. We’re going to throw this out there, but we’re almost sure Metropolis II may end up being the most emblematic of Los Angeles sculpture.
Comedian Meghan O’Keefe has never been to Los Angeles until very, very recently. And, like many, she didn’t know what to pack, what to expect from the city, or even what the city was like. She takes a very sensical and funny approach to the city and her soon-to-come meeting with it. Do people really think Los Angeles is that crazy?
The latest VMan had a little surprise: a tiny interview with one of Prism Gallery’s co-founders, PC Valmorbida. He was a part of the magazine’s Taylor Lautner coverboyed Archetype Issue, where he was in the middle of the first chapter (entitled “The Freshmen,” detailing up-and-comers of different worlds). The article is not available online, but we scanned it in for you to see what he had to say.
During Obama’s Southern California tour, which induced a lot of Mid-City LA traffic, he gave a fundraising speech yesterday at the House of Blues. There was news that he was heckled, but video has surfaced where a crazy person starts yelling at him about a “one true God” and Obama being “the antichrist.” Obama shrugs it off, not caring, the audience yells “FOUR MORE YEARS!,” drowning out the heckler, the heckler is removed, and Obama makes sure they get him his coat before moving on. Isn’t he just the sweetest?
CicLAvia is a once in a while Los Angeles event where large areas of street are closed off from cars to allow runners, walkers, joggers, and bikers to roam the streets as they wish they could every day. The CicLAvia on October 9th marks the third event and is liable to be the largest, as they are quickly gaining momentum and inspiring many to leave their cars in park and to get out on the street moving. Maybe they’ll be able to make CicLAvia everyday…actually, that could be a little insane but God love them for trying to make it everyday.
