THE DROP: SHELBY LYNNE

GRAMMY Museum

800 W. Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles, 90015

8:00pm

Independent, authentic and original, GRAMMY-winning singer/songwriter Shelby Lynne inhabits the same space in American music shaped by such like-minded musical renegades as Neil Young, Gram Parsons, Bobbie Gentry, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, and Johnny Cash. Before garnering Best New Artist honors at the 43rd Annual GRAMMY Awards in 2001, the Alabama native released a number of albums, including her 1989 debut Sunrise, 1993's Temptation, 2008's Just A Little Lovin' (her stellar tribute to Dusty Springfield) and her breakthrough I Am Shelby Lynne in 2000. In 2010 she launched her own indie label Everso Records and released four albums, including 2011's Revelation Road. On May 4 Lynne will release her 13th full-length album, I Can't Imagine. Featuring 10 songs written or co-written by the vocalist — including the title track, which premiered on RollingStone.com in February — the highly anticipated album reflects a panoply of Lynne's influences, from Southern soul, Crescent City R&B and California country and western, to the ardent social consciousness of artists such as Woody Guthrie. Lynne is set to perform both the new collection and her landmark album I Am Shelby Lynne live in their entirety in a special nationwide concert tour that's set to begin in Boston on May 7. Ahead of her tour, the GRAMMY Museum welcomes Lynne to the Clive Davis Theater as part of the Americana Series for an intimate performance and discussion surrounding her career and new album, moderated by Scott Goldman, Vice President of MusiCares and the GRAMMY Foundation.

LA Weekly's Artopia 2015

The Container Yard

800 E 4th St., Los Angeles, 90013

8:00pm to 11:00pm

LA Weekly presents Artopia at The Container Yard in DTLA! Join us Thursday, April 30th, from 8pm–11pm for LA Weekly's celebration of the vibrant arts and culture scene in Los Angeles! Art, music, food, mixology and fun await you as you step into a wonderland that will excite all of your senses. Curated by Shana Nys Dambrot, this event is sure to inspire.

"My vision for ARTOPIA this year continues and expands on the theme of interactivity, immersion, and experience that animated the 2014 edition — but this year, with a little more peace and love in the mix. Along with the return of favorites like Bohemian Society's edgy live body-painting textiles performance, and Debi Cable's Instagram-breaking 3D Art Gallery, ARTOPIA invites a cast of engaging, beauty-obsessed installation and performance artists and progressive video programmers to celebrate the release of the Weekly's People Issue by genuinely showing our love for the people. Setting the audio atmosphere for a night of hosted bars, botanical stimulation, appreciation of the human body, and the magic of art being made before your eyes will be the one and only Jeremy Sole — friend of all things beautiful, and so much more than just your favorite DJ." — Shana Nys Dambrot

*This event is 21+. Anyone who is under 21 is not permitted, even when accompanied by an adult. All guests must present a valid ID at check in to show proof of age and be admitted.
