Eastside Weekend: Paper Cuts in Echo Park; Pop! art in El Sereno*


Last Triade by Aurel Rubbish, featured at Subliminal Project’s show Paper Cuts


The human eye is constantly transmitting false information to the brain’s memory center. In time those altered images become convoluted, tangled up with other false memories, until finally there is this brier of love intertwined with regret and joy. Also consider the meticulous work from the artists featured in Paper Cuts at Subliminal Projects in Echo Park. The precision and attention to detail will shame any day dreams that might bubble up during that next work meeting. Saturday, March 7.

Pop art often treats us with pity, with its bright colors hanging in the dark night with all its promises. If you find yourself bouncing around El Sereno like a moth looking for colors, Pop! the art show will feature local artists and drinks. Donations go back into the workshop program at Holy Grounds Coffee & Tea. Friday, March 6.


Poet Lenelle Moïse will read from her new work Haiti Glass, from City Lights Publishers, which explores a voice coming of age in the Boston suburbs as a Haitian immigrant. Moïse is also an actress, playwright, and renowned spoken word artist, so anyone attending the reading can expect a wallop to the head. Friday, March 6 at Stories Books & Café in Echo Park.

* Correction: A previous version of this post said that the A Place to Bury Strangers concert was scheduled for Sunday, March 8. That’s wrong. The correct date is Sunday, March 15.

  1. A Place To Bury Strangers is Sunday, March 15…. not the 8th.

  2. Some of us have a greater definition of art. Call it craft and I’m ok.
