Lewis Watson

Troubadour

West Hollywood, CA 90069

9:00pm

Enthused by the rapid growth of his devoted online fan-base which he earned after posting a series of home-recorded performances to YouTube, Lewis Watson self-released his debut EP It’s Got Four Sad Songs On It BTW in the summer of 2012. It topped the iTunes singer-songwriter chart on the first day of release, outselling the likes of Adele, Madonna and Ed Sheeran in the process, and landed the then nineteen-year-old singer-songwriter a deal with Warner Bros. Records.

 

Lewis’s profile has continued to grow ever since. All five of his EPs to date have hit the Top 10 at iTunes, each building on the sales of the previous release. Now he finds himself in an unconventional yet enviable position. After already effectively releasing two full albums worth of material, his debut album The Morning will be unleashed this summer.

Drawing on both Western neuroscience and Eastern meditation practices, Siegel presents his current scientific research in an accessible, user-friendly 12 chapters.

Pink's The Truth About Love Tour, a 60-plus city, worldwide trek, is further proof that the Pennsylvania-born superstar isn't content just to play a concert -- she'll deliver an event.

The singer's 2012 album, The Truth About Love, debuted atop the Billboard 200 chart, received a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album, and yielded the fourth No. 1 single of her career, "Just Give Me a Reason."

The Melvins

Troubadour

West Hollywood, CA 90069

8:00pm

The Melvins are an American heavy metal band that formed in 1983. The Melvins' music is influenced by Black Flag's mix of punk and metal on their album My War, and other slow punk acts like Swans, Flipper and Wipers, but also by some hard rock and metal bands such as Kiss and Alice Cooper; however, their idiosyncratic approach, bizarre sense of humor, and experimentation make neat categorization difficult. Buzzo has also stated that his guitar playing is more influenced by Black Flag than Black Sabbath, with whom they are often compared.

Ted Hope presents and signs Hope for Film: From the Frontlines of the Independent Cinema Revolutions

Book Soup

8818 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90069

7:00pm

An inspiring, tell-all look at the indie film business from one of the industry's most passionate producers, Hope for Film captures the rebellious punk spirit of the indie film boom in 1990s New York City, its collapse two decades later and its current moment of technology-fueled regeneration. Ted Hope, whose films have garnered 12 Oscar nominations, draws from his own personal experiences working on the early films of Ang Lee, Eddie Burns, Hal Hartley, Michel Gondry, Nicole Holofcener, Todd Solondz and other indie mavericks, relating those decisions that brought him success as well as the occasional failure.

Whether navigating negotiations with Harvey Weinstein over final cuts or clashing with high-powered CAA agents over their clients, Hope offers behind-the-scenes stories from the wild and often heated world of low-budget cinema--where art and commerce collide. As mediator between these two opposing interests, Hope offers his unique perspective on how to make movies while keeping your integrity intact and how to create a sustainable business enterprise out of that art while staying true to yourself. Against a backdrop of seismic changes in the indie-film industry, from corporate co-option to the rise of social media, "Hope for Film" provides not only an entertaining and intimate ride through the ups and downs of the business of art-house movies over the last 25 years, but also hope for its future.
