ANDREA PORTES reads from ANATOMY OF A MISFIT

Skylight Books

1818 N. Vermont Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027

7:30pm

From bestselling adult novelist Andrea Portes comes her Young Adult debut: Anatomy of a Misfit (Harper Teen), an emotionally resonant story that Publishers Weekly raves is “instantly endearing” with a “highly memorable heroine” and voice.  

Anika is the third most popular girl in her high school--despite feeling she doesn’t fit in with the popular crowd in her small Nebraskan town. To maintain her social status, Anika does whatever Becky Vilhauser (first most popular girl in school) tells her to do. But when loner Logan McDonough returns from summer vacation hotter, and more mysterious than ever, Anika has a hard time staying away--even when Becky forbids her to date him. So Anika must choose--ignore her feelings and keep her social status? Or follow her heart and risk becoming a pariah. Which will she pick? And what will she think of her choice when an unimaginable tragedy strikes, changing her forever? An absolutely original new voice in YA in a story that will start important conversations--and tear at your heart.

iO West - Bipolar Bear Presents Sketchy Improv

IO West Theater

6366 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, 90028

10:30pm to 11:30pm

Peanut Butter is not the same without Jelly. A Bow is simply no good without an Arrow. And Romeo wouldn’t be caught dead without his Juliet.

That’s exactly why BIPOLAR BEAR PRESENTS SKETCHY IMPROV. It’s not an improv or a sketch show. It’s both!

Every 1st and 3rd Wednesday 10:30pm, comes this dangerously-exciting hour with three improv teams, using only an audience suggestion to weave a spontaneous series of characters and scenes. In between, a sketch team will perform very thought-out, well-written, and quite-rehearsed sketches. Together, they don’t make sense apart.

New teams every show, cultivated from a rotating list of LA’s up-and-coming comedic talent. Loft stage. Free.

iO West Theater is accessible by LA Metro's Red Line, and has shows on three stages all night, every night -- come early, stay late! All-ages shows in the Loft and DCT stages. Must be 21+ to access the bar and/or see any Main Stage show. Drink specials daily.

City and Colour

Greek Theatre

Los Angeles, CA 90027

7:30pm

City and Colour (aka  Dallas Green) delivered another folk-rock gem full of soft lilting vocals and delicate guitar playing with his 2013 release The Hurry and the Harm.  The album debuted at No. 1 on the Canadian Albums Chart and featured the heartbreaking single “Thirst” as well as the remorseful “The Lonely Life.” The Hurry and the Harm is the follow-up to 2011’s Little Hell, another No. 1 debut on the Canadian Albums Chart. His other releases include Sometimes (2005) and Bring Me Your Love (2008). Green has racked up a number of accolades over the years, including three Juno Awards: Alternative Album of the Year for Sometimes and  Songwriter of the Year in both 2009 and 2012. Fans who only know Green’s work as City and Colour may be shocked to learn he was once a member of the aggressive post-hardcore outfit Alexisonfire. Green served as vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter for the band before deciding to leave in 2010. The fact that Green was able to go from hard-hitting rock to introspective folk speaks to his tremendous talents as a musician, songwriter, and performer. On tour, ticket buyers have been praising Green’s voice and the diverse live sets which range from quieter acoustic songs to high-energy, rock-out moments with his backing band.
