I loved seeing M83 play on Sunday at the Hollywood Bowl.  Singer Anthony Gonzalez brought such a lovely energy to the show.  I can’t remember the last time an artist seemed so genuinely thrilled to be  performing.

This song-“Kim and Jessie” from the album Saturdays=Youth wasn’t included in the show but I love it, so I thought I’d put it up this week.

The Kinks- Autumn Almanac

I love this song and it always ends up on my playlists when Autumn returns, even when I’m living in places where you only know what season it is by the displays put up in stores. It’s so English as well, reminding me of good times spent with “football on a Saturday, roast beef on Sunday”.

This is the last weekend for the Helmut Newton show at Annenberg Space for Photography ( If you go, make sure to watch the movie playing in the back room which is considerably more interesting than the one playing in the center of the gallery.
