Dig Deeper…..
Over the past 20 years an event that started off by feeding 9 people ended up growing and giving so much more, its called Gobble Gobble Give. This year on Thanksgiving Day over 24,500 men, women, and children who live on the streets were fed. 15,000 toothbrush kits, 10,000 warm hoodies and beanies. 10,000 brand new warm socks were handed out. Currently their Feed the Homeless program is in 17 cities from San Francisco to Harlem NY, from Detroit Mi to Austin Tx, from the OC to Nashville.

Skid Row Christmas is presented by Tradecraft Farms & Stick-e-vape who are celebrating their year, they decided to take their annual holiday party to another level by creating a space to gather and give back to those in need. The goal is to curate a Huge Los Angeles Christmas Celebration to raise awareness and much needed supplies for the winter. Guests are encouraged to bring an unwrapped gift to donate at the door, they will be wrapped and distributed all over the city. Gift recommendations: blankets, hoodies, packs of socks, food baskets, etc. This is a cannabis friendly event. A portion of the proceeds will go to LA’s homeless.

Ps… the cost of the VIP “Wellness” Experience is about the cost of a top shelf bouquet and comes with a bunch of highlights. You give a gift and get a gift. But a ticket: https://bit.ly/skidrowxmas

09.17.17 | Astral Progressions | LIVE!


Astral Progressions Instagram FINAL(1)

Join us at the historic Ford Theatres in Hollywood for a concert under the stars. Virtuoso trumpeter and composer Josef Leimberg will make his Ford Theatres debut performing music from his recent album, Astral Progressions, a fusion of cosmic jazz with soul, R&B and hip-hop.

For his Ford performance, he will bring along some of his favorite musicians and collaborators, including singer/songwriters Bilal, Jimetta Rose Music and Jermaine Holmes (D’Angelo’s The Vanguard/Drumhedz), to perform his signature style of innovative and expansive jazz.

Gates open at 5:30pm.
Show starts promptly at 7:30pm.

Bring your food and drinks (beer and wine permitted) and picnic on the plaza. Special pre-show performance on “The Zev” terrace with Kobie Dozier (saxaphone) and Gina Ramirez (double bass)

More about Josef Leimberg:
Josef appeared on Kendrick Lamar‘s Grammy Award–winning LP To Pimp a Butterfly, and has worked with Snoop Dogg, Erykah Badu, Funkadelic, Thundercat and Dr Dre, among others.

“The West Coast jazz scene is having a moment. Led by the inimitable Kamasi Washington, it has also bred standout artists like Terrace Martin, Miles Mosley, whilst also birthing the careers of Thundercat and Flying Lotus.

“On his solo debut, “Astral Progressions,” Leimberg blasts into a decidedly cosmic realm, one that recalls Sun Ra’s transfixing work with the Mini-Moog synthesizer in the 1970s, except channeled through contemporary beat-based Los Angeles and filled with generational vigor. It’s music, thick with reverb, echo, layers of voices and a free-floating spirit that celebrates sonic spontaneity. Leimberg mixes these elements into compositions that suggest smoky cocktail jazz of the 1960s or the opening theme to a movie about a Leimert Park love affair.”—Randall Roberts, Los Angeles Times
