Marsden Hartley: The German Paintings 1913–1915

LACMA

5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

2:00pm

Tour Marsden Hartley: The German Paintings 1913–1915, an exhibition featuring 25 seminal works by the influential American modernist painter created during his years in Berlin (1913–15). The paintings reveal the profound impact of World War I and elucidate the artist's appropriation of military symbols and Native American motifs. Hartley’s paintings from this period reflect dynamic shifts in style and subject matter, and evidence a critical moment in his body of work. The exhibition, organized by the Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin, in collaboration with LACMA, coincides with the centennial commemoration of World War I. The presentation in Los Angeles marks the first exhibition of Hartley's work in Southern California in over thirty years, and the first focused exhibition of Hartley’s Berlin paintings in the United States since they were created.

Journeys Noise Tour featuring Issues

House of Blues Sunset Strip

8430 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90069

6:30pm

Issues is an American metalcore band from Atlanta, Georgia. Issues has often been associated with the metalcore genre with a mixture of nu metal & R&B. Reviews for the debut EP Black Diamonds often called the album primarily metalcore with an influence of R&B. The band themselves has commented that they wanted to mix metal and "Top 40" music in the same way that post-hardcore and nu metal mixed heavy metal music with hip hop music.

When their debut album was released, the response from critics was mixed. While Alternative Press praised the bands unique sound with mixing metalcore with DJ-based breakdowns, calling them the modern alternative for nu metal,[30] whilst the likes of AllMusic and Sputnikmusic criticized the bands mixture of genre's, stating that it isn't nu metal, and more like a mixture of pop music and metalcore, with Sputnikmusic quoting that they sounded like a mixture of Limp Bizkit and Justin Bieber
