Dan Deacon- Become A Mountain
So…a lot of events have been canceled already for this weekend due to coronavirus, including Pasadena’s ArtNight. I am listing events currently (as of this writing) still happening but please follow the links below to the event (and Twitter page if available) to confirm that it is taking place.
Things to do in Los Angeles this weekend (3/12-3/15/20)-
Zebulon is showing Silver Jew Documentary, a film by Michael Tully documenting two shows by the Silver Jews in Tel Aviv and an afternoon in Jerusalem during their first-ever tour in 2006, 15 years after its founder David Berman began recording under that name. Berman passed away in August of 2019. The film is short but there will also be a selection of Silver Jews and Purple Mountains (his later band) videos. It’s a free event but donations and proceeds from this screening will benefit MusiCares, a nonprofit that has provided more than $60 million in health, financial, and rehabilitation resources to musicians in times of need.
