Eastside Weekend: Sacred Hearts in El Sereno; Gimme Gimme Records get-together in Highland Park



Local photographer Drew Aveling is O&M Leather’s artist of the month. Photos from his travels to Monument Valley, Zion, Alaska, Oregon and Kuala Lumpur will be on display, along with Tacos El Mago De Culiacan Sinaloa if the pictures don’t fill anyone up. Saturday, February 7 in Eagle Rock.

The Progressive Cultures series at La Plaza will explore and compare the history of two interracial communities – District Six in Cape Town, South Africa and Boyle Heights. The talk will be led by Dr. George J. Sanchez, Professor of American Studies, Ethnicity, and History, at University of Southern California. Sunday, February 8.
Featuring over fifty artists celebrating the art of screen prints and Chicano art, with works by Richard Duardo, Lalo Alcaraz, Roberto Gutiérrez, Sonia Romero, Jaime Germs Zacarias and many more. Estampas de la Raza at the Vincent Price Museum explores political charged works, or those of icons from Chicano culture of the late 1970s, like Luis A. Jiménez Jr.’s El Corazón Lowrider. Opening reception, Saturday, February 7.
Highland Park’s Gimme Gimme Records is comfortably nestled in their new location on Avenue 58, so it only makes sense to have a little get-together to get to know the neighbors on Figueroa Street. Expect pizza, beer and DJ sets from locals like Marc Maron and Matteo from Bearded Beagle, and of course lots of talk about sound quality. Saturday, February 7.
Technically the heart pumps blood. Which is a gruesome symbol for love, but the artists’ reception at Holy Grounds Coffee in El Sereno is celebrating Sacred Hearts. Artwork from local artists will be available for purchase, along with live music, beer, wine and all donations go to support the art workshops. Friday, February 6.

Nathan Solis is a Highland Park resident who writes about and photographs the L.A. music scene. You can find more of Solis’ stories, reviews and photos at Avenue Meander.
