More Events on First Fridays:

High Voltage at Electric Lodge: This is a must see show! High Voltage consists of an array of performing artists and dancers aimed at making the audience feel that jolt of excitement! Hosted by associate artistic director Josh Berkowitz, each ticket is only $10 that’s a steal for this quality of entertainment! Head on over early, since show starts prompt at 9 and so you get a parking spot or valet park it..

snapchat-abbotkinney1stSnapchat Protest: While many of you love the app, the Venice neighborhood is not loving how Snap has taken over the neighborhood, resulting in many businesses losing their spaces and residents as well, in addition to overzealous security guards.
