Resident, DTLA’s New Music Venue + Cocktail Bar + Beer Garden,…

first_imgDanceDrinkingMusicNightlifeResident, DTLA’s New Music Venue + Cocktail Bar + Beer Garden, Opens TonightThe cozy indoor-outdoor space invites all day and all night hangsBy Jessica P. Ogilvie – December 11, 2015854ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddItIn the past decade, Los Angeles has steam-plowed to the forefront of the independent music scene, the craft beverage scene, and the food truck scene (which many would argue we in fact created). But until now, no single venue in the city has successfully brought all three together.Say hello to Resident, a new industrial-style space that houses an intimate live performance area, an Austin-style beer garden, a cocktail program by Randy Tarlow of Liquid Alchemy, and a rotating line-up of food trucks. Housed in an Arts District warehouse owned by longtime residents Tim Kreihbel and Bridget Vagedes—they bought the building in 2000—Resident seeks to provide the city with a long-overdue venue that’s low-key, accommodating, and innovative. Front FacadeIndoor Craft Beer TapsSeating Outside Airstream TrailerOutdoor Beer GardenLarry Little, Resident’s music director, says that he’s been tossing around an idea like this with local architect Jacek Ostoya for years.“Jacek and I…started imagining how great it would be for L.A. to have a proper beer garden with a live music option,” he says. “We both had lived in San Francisco, and were regulars at a placed called Zeitgeist, and we felt Los Angeles needed something in this spirit. We just wanted to marry our love for live music and hanging out with friends with a place we could enjoy some tasty beverages, and there you have Resident.”Resident’s three main areas are cozy. The indoor performance space is comfortable and inviting, with plenty of seating and tables. Outside, the beer garden is furnished with picnic tables, string lights and succulent gardens, and a retrofitted Spartan trailer serves as the outdoor bar. The musical focus will be on a carefully curated line-up. Mystery Skulls and Wes Period will play the opening tonight. Next year, the space will have residencies with Brainstory and Andrew St. James, as well as shows from Sarah Neufeld (of Arcade Fire), Blanck Mass, and more.Because the venue will have income from its food and beverage lineup, Little, who is working together with Duncan Smith (formerly of Spaceland Productions), can be more selective about music. The setup “allows us to not have intense pressure on having every show a blowout, like a traditional venue,” says Little. “We get to take our time and curate artists that we believe in, and provide a platform for young acts with small and growing profiles. [We’ll be] able to take risks based on our belief in their talent and build a reputation within the music community.”Resident feels like a natural extension of the area, thanks in large part to the strong influence Kreihbel and Vagedes had on its design. Their main hope, Kreihbel says, is to spread some of the love that brought them to the Arts District in the first place.“We are part of a group of people who came to this area to do our own thing,” he says. “As the context of the neighborhood has changed, we saw this venture as an opportunity to share some of that spirit with all those that will be here going forward.” TAGSArts DistrictDTLAResidentPrevious articleSalt’s Cure Returns with Bigger Digs and Expanded MenuNext articleSlide Show: Happy Birthday Triforium!Jessica P.

Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s One-Time L.A. Abode Just Sold

first_imgMusicCelebrityBusiness & Real EstateKurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s One-Time L.A. Abode Just SoldThe Hollywood Heights house that the duo rented in the ’90s, while both were writing landmark albums, hit the market for $998kBy Oren Peleg – June 2, 202154ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddItSale of the Hollywood Heights home where Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love once lived is being finalized. The property, which has fallen into deep disrepair, was listed for $998,000, though the sale price hasn’t been publicized.The home is a two-story, 2,458-square-foot, three bed, three bath Craftsman-style home built in 1921. “I’ve heard from a dozen people, but it’s unconfirmed, that the house was originally built for a famous Chinese American actress,” says Tatiana Tensen, an agent with Sotheby’s International Realty Los Feliz, who represented the seller. She adds that between the 1950s and ’80s, the home belonged to actor Philip Ahn.Beyond its Cobain-Love connection, a main selling point of the home is that it is part of the legendary High Tower Elevator Association, and comes with a key to the elevator. The cluster of homes above the High Tower Elevator were featured prominently in the 1973 film The Long Goodbye. Additionally, the house is about 600 feet from the Hollywood Bowl—maybe not ideal for a quiet summer night, but “when the Beatles came to play the Bowl, this was the house to be at,” Tensen explains. “Apparently, there were 100 people on the roof listening to the show.”Kurt and Courtney House1 of 10 In 1992, Cobain and Love rented the house where they each began writing landmark ’90s albums. Cobain wrote most of Nirvana’s final studio album, In Utero, in the upstairs closet. The process was documented in Patty Schemel’s documentary Hit So Hard. Meanwhile, Love began writing Hole’s second studio album, Live Through This. The couple also lived there when their daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, was born.The home has since become a popular destination for Nirvana fans to visit and post about to YouTube. As Tensen notes, several of the people interested in the house were big fans of Nirvana, “including one guy who had a tattoo of Nirvana on his ankle.”Sale of the home is set to close this week, but neither the final sale price nor buyer have been publicly disclosed. Ryan Hanke, of Figure8 Realty, represents the buyer.Stay on top of the latest in L.A. news, food, and culture. Sign up for our newsletters today.

American Airlines to not allow emotional support animals

first_imgThe DOT rule was also prompted by an increase in service animal complaints from passengers with disabilities, misbehavior by emotional support animals, a lack of clarity around the definition of “service animal” and disruptions caused by “requests to transport unusual species of animals onboard aircraft,” according to the DOT.Pigs and peacocks are among the unexpected animals that have previously flown as emotional support animals.American says existing bookings for emotional support animals will be honored only through the rest of the month.Starting February 1, American will require passengers traveling with service animals to electronically submit a DOT form in advance of a flight outlining the dog’s behavior, training and health. Authorization is valid for one year or until the expiration of the animal’s vaccinations.American isn’t the first airline to update its policies to align with the DOT.

TWU wins landmark unfair dismissal case against Deliveroo

first_imgTWU wins landmark unfair dismissal case against Deliveroo Transport Workers Union member Diego Franco has won his unfair dismissal case against Deliveroo, who sacked him without notice at the height of the pandemic in April 2020. Diego had worked for the company for three years.The decision is a huge win for Diego and his union who have worked tirelessly to compel gig economy employers to honour their most basic obligations to workers.Insecure work is a national crisis but is most visible in the gig economy, where permanent, secure employment has been replaced with unreliable contractor arrangements which strip away the basic rights which all workers should be able to rely on.This decision makes it clear- gig economy workers have rights, Diego Franco was an employee with rights and protections.Rather than acting to improve the job security of working people the Morrison Government has recently legislated to allow employers to deem any employee casual based on the terms of their contract and refused to pass their own wage theft bill.Quotes attributable to ACTU President Michele O’Neil:“This is a great win for Diego and his union. Employers can’t simply tell workers they are contractors in order to strip away rights.“Insecure work takes certainty and security away from millions of Australian workers and their families. Workers in the gig economy often work excessive hours but live in fear of being booted off an ap with no notice.“All working people in Australia have rights. This decision is a huge strike against the efforts of the gig economy employers to undermine rights and protections which were won by working people and have stood for decades.“The next step must be for the Morrison Government to introduce new laws that close loopholes that leave gig workers open to exploitation.“The Morrison Government could take action tomorrow to reduce insecure, unreliable work by regulating the gig economy and ending sham arrangements.” /Public Release.

CU-Boulder Researcher Was Scientific Consultant For

first_imgCU-Boulder researcher Joshua Colwell was a scientific consultant on the upcoming film, “Deep Impact,” which hits theaters May 8 and features the mayhem created when a wayward comet slams into Earth’s ocean. Colwell, a planetary scientist at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics, flew to Hollywood several times to meet with directors and producers about the scientific accuracy of the script, including comet behavior. Colwell worked with technical consultants Gerald Griffin — former director of NASA’s Johnson Space Center who also worked as a consultant on “Apollo 13” and “Contact” — and retired NASA astronaut David Walker. The scientific consulting team also included the late Eugene Shoemaker (who was killed in a car accident in Australia last July), his wife, Carolyn Shoemaker, and Chris Luchini of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. Eugene Shoemaker was the co-discoverer of the famed Shoemaker-Levy 9 comet that plowed into Jupiter in 1994. Colwell was kept updated on the script as shooting progressed and sent the filmmakers comments on its scientific accuracy. Colwell did the calculations, for example, on how large a wave would be generated by a comet of a particular size striking the ocean from various angles. He also spent two days on the movie set as an actor, portraying a flight controller in a scene depicting the space agency’s mission control center. Projected to be one of summer’s blockbuster hits, the movie was made by Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks Pictures and produced by Stephen Spielberg, Joan Bradshaw and Walter Parkes. For more information, contact Colwell at (303) 492-6805 or Jim Scott in the CU-Boulder public relations office at 492-3114.

Weed Should Scare You!

first_imgEmail Pinterest Share ReddIt Linkedin Twitter Facebook TAGS3-Tier DistributionBrian RosenCannabisThree TierThree Tier TalkThree-Tier System Home Wine Business Editorial Three Tier Talk Weed Should Scare You!Wine Business EditorialThree Tier TalkWeed Should Scare You!By Brian Rosen – June 26, 2018 48 0 AdvertisementWhen I say weed should scare you I am not talking about You, the reader, I am speaking about the very basic, everyday, mundane, generic wine, beer, or spirit. Weed, the actual THC, is not scary at all to me. I can remember a few nights lounging in our suburban basement watching Pink Floyd, “The Wall,” while subversively hiding from my parents. I remember that actually happening, and it all seems pretty funny now with CA, NV, and others legalizing recreational pot. What should be scary is how the adult beverage market is going to react.If you string together a series of articles and publications from Wine Industry Advisor, Shanken, WSD, and others you will see a scary pattern emerging. The pattern is that Big Distribution is investing into pot in a big way. Large companies like SGWS and Diageo are investing millions in hopes of putting a marker in the sand on control and selling/ distribution. This is all a big deal because it will mean the end of the “basic” beverage.There will be a scenario in the future when the consumer will make an educated choice of whether to open a beer or smoke a joint. There will be a choice made of vodka & soda or a “hit” of cannabis. The basic drink, the bud light’s/ the Finlandia Vodka/ the Jim Beam and KJ Chardonnay will be replaced by smoking. The reason they will be replaced is because they are a sessionable, average beverages in an era when the consumer has a choice to make. Back in the day, if you drank and smoked you were cross-faded, but the consumer demographic for the loss of beverage sales is not college age male, it is middle-aged man/woman with college or advanced degree, and they will make the choice.The big distributors are positioned to take advantage of selling and securing cannabis because they already have a compliance system in place. The unaffected brands will be the something special brands that are not basic at all. The barrel aged rum, the estate wine, the Tequila that was found 100 years ago and is now ready to sell. Basic brands are bought on price and convenience, and when pot becomes price and convenient those brands will suffer. High end brands that are rare, special, allocated and otherwise different will survive and thrive.We, BevStrat, are all for the shift in consumer behavior. In a study we did last year we found that over 40% of base brands are planning on creating/ distilling/ making a higher-end product to compete with the pot train as it leaves the station. No longer are the days of hiding in my parents basement and blowing smoke through a towel. I, of course, do not know if this specifically, but I have heard from friends. Makers need to position themselves for the near term where a basic wine/ spirit/ or beer will be replaced by a joint. To keep with the theme and Pink Floyd reference, you will have to adjust to this trend to make money, it’s a gas!Three Tier Talkby Brian Rosen, www.BevStrat.com Brian Rosen is Former CEO of America’s #1 Retailer, Sam’s Wines in Chicago, Former Partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Retail and sought after retailer consultant.E- [email protected] 800 953 1312W- www.BevStrat.comMore information and articles by Brian RosenAdvertisement Previous articleLabeltronix Marks 25th Anniversary – Once Known as the ‘Little Company That Can,’ Is Not So Little NowNext articleAnnouncing the Winners of the 2018 Central Coast Wine Competition Brian Rosenlast_img read more

Vice President of the NWC, David Geddes, told JIS News today (Oct. 26), that  approximately 55 per cent ofproduction capacity is back in operation, about 150 water supply systems are still out of service. “The most critically affected areas without piped water supply (are) sections of Mona, Liguanea, Papine and other sections of St. Andrew and that is because of the absence of electrical power to transfer water from Mona to the Hope filter plant. Meanwhile, Communications Manager at JPS, Winsome Callum, said that the power company is nearing total restoration for all north and south-western parishes, but still faces difficulties in the eastern parishes. “Those would be St. Thomas, Portland, St. Mary and St. Ann on the north-eastern end of the island because these four parishes lost total power supply as a result of damage to the transmission system. They expect that restoration activities will continue into the weekend,” she told JIS News. JPS continues to ask its customers for patience as it works to restore electricity to all parishes within the shortest time possible.last_img read more
