SEE: Cloud Atlas

Join KCRW for a free advanced screening of the new Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer film, Cloud Atlas. Stick around afterwards for a chat between Elvis Mitchell and the filmmakers during a live taping of The Treatment. Top that off by joining us for a drink at the Arclight bar.

HEAR: Michael Kiwanuka

With comparisons to Bill Withers and Donny Hathaway, Michael Kiwanuka’s soulful singing is garnering attention. Michael’s U.S. radio debut was a stripped down, live set in our studios last year. Catch the KCRW favorite on October 9 at the beautiful Ford Amphitheater.

EAT: Campanile

Mark Peel’s legendary restaurant on La Brea, and one of Evan Kleiman’s favorites, is closing after 23 years. Get your reservation for an all-you-can-eat feast on their last night, Halloween night, for only $89 – a nod to the year Campanile opened, 1989.

SAY GOODBYE

SEE: Destroy the Picture

Don’t miss Destroy the Picture: Painting the Void, 1949-1962 at MOCA, the last show from ousted curator Paul Schimmel. Aside from the collection of masterpieces, the show is a “reminder of what a great curator can contribute to a museum,” says Hunter Drohojowska-Philp.

PAINT THE VOID

LISTEN: Tig Notaro Live

After being diagnosed with breast cancer and losing her mother tragically, comedian Tig Notaro decided the show must go on and performed a heartbreakingly funny stand-up routine. That performance is now available for $5 at Louis CK’s site. It’s an incredibly moving listen.

LAUGH & CRY

Join KCRW for a free advanced screening of the new Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer film, Cloud Atlas. Stick around afterwards for a chat between Elvis Mitchell and the filmmakers during a live taping of The Treatment. Top that off by joining us for a drink at the Arclight bar.
