The Melrose Trading Post offers a constantly evolving experience, with a curated selection of handcrafted artisan goods, eclectic art and craft, vintage fashion, antique furniture and one-of-a-kind treasures. Through admission and vendor fees, the Melrose Trading Post has grown to become the most successful ongoing social enterprise program in the history of Los Angeles Unified School District, awarding grants to Fairfax High School organizations for sports equipment, beautification projects, teacher programs, theatre productions, and more - totaling well over seven million dollars since the Melrose Trading Post’s humble beginnings in 1997. Through Greenway Arts Alliance, the Melrose Trading Post provides formal job and life skills training to large numbers of paid and volunteer students from Fairfax High School – the first real-world job experience for many. The market also serves as an incubator to promote small community businesses and budding entrepreneurs, many of them professional artists, by providing affordable retail opportunities in a prime, high-traffic location. Additionally, the popular weekly market has always featured local musicians. The market provides opportunities for local artists to express themselves through an outdoor, year-long series of music, dance, theater and spoken word events via the Greenway Arts Main Stage and the MTP Corner Stage.

Of Thorns and Love is the first solo museum exhibition of Egyptian-born, Los Angeles-based artist Sherin Guirguis, whose new body of work brings to surface the neglected history of Egyptian feminist activist and writer Doria Shafik (1908–75). Guirguis thoughtfully explores Shafik’s legacy as a leader of the Egyptian women’s liberation movement through paper-cut paintings, sculptures, and site-specific installations that refer to important sites, texts, and political actions in Shafik’s life.

Roger Daltrey in Conversation with Judd Apatow

We’re honored to be the host event for the launch of Roger Daltrey’s memoir! The frontman of one of the greatest bands of all time tells the story of his rise from nothing to rock ‘n’ roll megastar, and his wild journey as the voice of The Who. Roger Daltrey is the lead vocalist and founding member of The Who. His career has spanned more than 50 years, with a solo career producing eight studio albums. A daytime worker at a sheet metal factory, he first assembled The Who in 1961, recruiting John Entwistle and agreeing to John’s proposal that Pete Townshend should join. Daltrey was the band’s voice, a powerhouse frontman known for his stage presence and energy. As a member of The Who, Daltrey was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 and received a Kennedy Center Honor in 2008. “It’s taken me three years to unpack the events of my life, to remember who did what when and why, to separate the myths from the reality, to unravel what really happened at the Holiday Inn on Keith Moon’s 21st birthday,” says Roger Daltrey, the powerhouse vocalist of The Who. The result of this introspection is a remarkable memoir, instantly captivating, funny and frank, chock-full of well-earned wisdom and one-of-kind anecdotes from a raucous life that spans a tumultuous time of change in Britain and America. Born during the air bombing of London in 1944, Daltrey fought his way (literally) through school and poverty and began to assemble the band that would become The Who while working at a sheet metal factory in 1961. In Daltrey’s voice, the familiar stories―how they got into smashing up their kit, the infighting, Keith Moon’s antics―take on a new, intimate life. Also here is the creative journey through the unforgettable hits including My Generation, Substitute, Pinball Wizard, and the great albums, Who’s Next, Tommy, and Quadrophenia. Amidst all the music and mayhem, the drugs, the premature deaths, the ruined hotel rooms, Roger is our perfect narrator, remaining sober (relatively) and observant and determined to make The Who bigger and bigger. Not only his personal story, this is the definitive biography of The Who. Mr. Kibblewhite was Daltrey’s “draconian headmaster” during the singer’s rebellious teenage years.

In honor of the film’s 45th anniversary, the Academy will host a celebratory screening of the director’s cut, featuring an onstage discussion with director William Friedkin and actress Ellen Burstyn.

Come Away

Save
Been There
A heartwarming tale of the compassion of strangers, Come From Away tells the true story of the week of September 11, when 38 planes from around the world landed in Gander, Newfoundland, and changed the lives of the passengers and locals alike. The show, with book, music and lyrics written by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, is fueled by its colorful cast of characters, many of which are based on real people and their stories. At a time when xenophobia and hatred are dangerously high, Come From Away swoops in to remind us all of humanity’s capacity for love and charity. The show brilliantly uses stories, images and audio from the events of September 11 to give true-to-life examples of human kindness in times of hardship. A show based on such a terrible true event had the potential to take advantage of that tragedy, but Come From Away is above that. It touches on some tender moments that will certainly remind audience members of their own experiences, but it never clings to those moments for longer than necessary. For every moment of grief, there is another moment of warmth and joy.It’s not just a moving show but a funny one too, with humor that isn’t mean-spirited but genuine and warm. The rollicking country-folk soundtrack lends itself to the setting of a “backwater Canadian town”. The band, with their acoustic guitars, violins and accordions, are as much a part of the cast as the actors are. Besides jumping on tables and moving throughout the scenes, the musicians weave under and around the actors to create a beautiful tapestry of sound and story. Despite the myriad of story threads, the entire show flows together as a singular piece, with each song smoothly shifting into the next. The soundtrack is interspersed with dialogue, which makes it a difficult cast album to sing along to, but it’s truthful to the characters and themes. The different accents, turns of phrase and expressions really make these characters unique and familiar in a way that would be hard to replicate in a sung-through musical. The most enthralling moments of the show come when dialogue is spoken over the top of the ensemble’s chillingly unified voices.
