Rose Bowl Flea Market · Pasadena
05.13 1001 Rose Bowl Dr, Pasadena, CA 91103

Sunday February 11th 2018 – November 10th 2019, 3rd Sunday of every month.

Perhaps the Los Angeles area’s most iconic flea market, this event around the exterior of the Rose Bowl is staggeringly colossal—but what else would you expect from a 90,000-seat stadium? The sheer size and scale of this flea market means that it encompasses multitudes: new and old, hand-crafted and salvaged, the cheap and the costly. On the second Sunday of each month, an odd mix of vendors populates the loop around the stadium: for every eye-catching artwork, there’s a ratty $5 T-shirt, and for each elegant craft there’s a competing “as seen on TV” demo. But you may have more luck in the rows and rows of old furniture, albums and vintage clothes and accessories that fill the adjacent parking lot. There are plenty of duds, to be sure, but come out early enough and you may go home with that perfect purchase. This destination flea market attracts bargain hunters, collectors, and antique aficionados from all over the county, so the organizers have instituted an extensive tiered entry/admission system, allowing professional and dedicated shoppers early access at a premium.

Rooftop Cinema Club・Ricardo Montalbán Theatre
05.31 Ricardo Montalbán Theatre, LEVEL

The masters of alfresco rooftop movie viewing have returned for their fourth season of screenings on the Montalbán’s rooftop—and its second at Downtown’s LEVEL.

Taking full advantage of beautiful city views, RCC promises to offer some of the most unique and incredible movie-going opportunities for film lovers throughout 2018. You don’t even need to bring your own blanket or camping chair—Rooftop Cinema Club provides you with your very own comfy lawn chair, as well as blankets on request for the ultimate cozy experience. And instead of listening to the movie over loudspeakers, you’ll get a set of wireless headphones so you never have to miss a word.

The series is packed with a wide selection of audience favorites, kicking things off in April with I, Tonyaand carrying on with classics like Back to the Future and recent hits, including The Shape of Water.

The Museum of Selfies ・Los Angeles
05.31 TBA

The photo-op-filled Museum of Selfies sounds like it actually might try to make good on its “museum” name. The space arrives in Glendale for a limited time this January with hands-on installations that examine the 40,000 year history, science, art and culture of self representation.

Of course, there will be plenty of Instagram-ready photo ops, with exhibits dedicated to specific shots like the “food selfie” as well as an Iron Throne made of selfie sticks.

The rest of the announced exhibits seem surprisingly in on the joke; the “high-up selfie” has less to do with flattering angles and more to do with a faux rooftop locale while the “bathroom selfie” finds visitors in “a two-sided room that lacks self-reflection.” That’s in addition to an entire section dedicated to narcissism that combines Greek mythology and statistics on the number of deaths from selfie-related accidents (We know, right? That took a turn.).

Tickets, $25

Available until May 31, 2o18

FYF Fest・Exposition Park
07.21 Exposition Park

FYF Fest has yet again restored our faith in festival lineups after revealing their artist roster for this year’s event. The folks at FYF continue to step it up compared to their humble beginnings at the Echo all those years ago. The result is a fest that’s one of the best-curated festivals anywhere, albeit sometimes a little rough around the edges—true to its “Fuck Yeah” namesake, we suppose.Headliners for the Los Angeles-based fest include Janet Jackson (!!!), Florence + the Machine, Future and The XX. Also on the docket is St. Vincent, My Blood Valentine and The Breeders. Mark your calendars for July 21 to 22–it’s going down! Tickets are on sale April 6.
