Cool Socal Events This Weekend 5/17-18

I don't plan to make this a pattern, but there is just too much good stuff happening this Saturday in both art and music, and it being Friday afternoon, I've decided to cram them all into one resource for you to schedule your weekend of coolness accordingly.  Try not to miss anything, as your cool points will increase with every awesome thing you attend!


Junglist Fridays at the Kava Lounge.  LA heavy hitter RAW will be at this this first installment of this monthly massive, and if you miss it you are a fool.  Check the link above of the Junglist Fridays event page for more info. 5/17 starting at 9pm, tickets are only $5.!

The DoLab Presents: if you're in LA this Friday 5/17, this looks like the place to be.  The DoLab will be presenting some huge names including MartyParty, Noah D, Trill Murray, and Alexander DCD.  Located at King King Hollywood, tix are $20 for this massive lineup!

Switch Radio show Saturday, 5/18 11am-2pm.  You don't even have to leave your house for this!  Just wake up, and tune in to hear Rawtee, Dino, Senneca, and Jahz.  Start your Saturday off hard!  Tune in online at

HOME3ASS Presents RAW, APX-1, Clutch, Camo UFOs, and XYZ.  If you were in LA on Friday but still want to see your favorite local legends, don't fret.  RAW and APX-1 will be back at HOME3ASS on Saturday at Los Globos.  Get your hard, dark ragga no matter where you are in Socal this weekend!

SD Union Presents Hybris and The American Jungle Live Fliming Party!  This one is so huge, it has its own post.  Just click the link above for all the info.  5/18 at the Ruby Room in San Diego.


Warehouse 1425 Group Art Show in East Village, San Diego.  This show features some of the biggest and best street artists in San Diego, and is to benefit a good cause: the resurgence of the East Village art community.  Check the link for all the info.  Tonight, 5/17 from 6-10pm.

Power Animals III: Spirit Guides this is an opening party for a group show, sponsored by Thumbprint Gallery and taking place at The Spot in Barrio Logan.  This is a free event going from 5-10pm on Saturday, 5/18.  Featuring work from Ali Bautista, Mr. Dvice, and Sumo1.  Great, theme, great gallery!

North Park Festival of the Arts.  5/18, features art from all over the country and especially local artists.  Many different varieties.  I believe this event is free, but there are areas that you can get tickets for such as the Beer Block and the Upper Glass Whiskey Tasting.  This is a classic North Park Block party with tons of art, music, performance art and BOOZE!

Subtext Open Hours: Cognitive Dissonance, the Works of Kelly McKernan  I missed the opening for this show, but its still going on and Subtext will be open tomorrow, 5/18 from 12-3pm so anyone can go in and look at Kelly McKernan's amazing selections.  I know I'll be there hastily snapping pictures for my review that I should have done two weeks ago.  Click on the links for more details and directions to Subtext.

Herb Turner: Realist/Idealist at Oma Gallery.  This is closing this weekend, so if you're in Escondido, it's worth trying to catch it.  Click the link for details.

James Chronister at LUX Art Institute, Encinitas.  You'd swear these paintings are photographs.  This show is also closing this weekend, so if you're in Encinitas, I highly recommend you check it out. 

Jessica Lange at MOPA: Photography Show Closing 5/19.  MOPA can be a little pretentious, but I think this show is well worth it.  Catch it while you can!

Art Museum Day and International Museum Day: Participating Museums in San Diego are MCASD and SDMA.  MCASD has two locations, both showing interesting exhibits right now.  Art Museum Day means you can visit both of these museums for free on Saturday and Sunday this weekend. 

Now do you see why I've put all of these events in one article?  It's just too much!  Get out this weekend, hit as many of these as you can, and expand your lexicon of coolness.
