LOS ANGELES — At least 33,000 Los Angeles Department of Water and Power customers across the city were without power Wednesday morning, and another 2,500 Southern California Edison customers in communities outside Los Angeles were in the dark as a result of a windstorm that has been wreaking havoc in Southern California, downing power lines.

Coachella 2019: Bob Moses returns to the desert music festival with ‘Battle Lines,’ a new album made in LA

Jimmy Vallance recounts with lingering horror how Bob Moses, his electronic rock act with Tom Howie, survived a near-disaster of a debut at the Coachella Valley Arts & Music Festival in 2016 just as the duo with the singular name was taking off. The single “Tearing Me Up” was rising on the alternative radio charts, but the group’s infrastructure – the roadies and tech guys that make life better for bands on the road – hadn’t caught up with the velocity of buzz about the band.

North Hollywood High School students head to national cybersecurity competition

When people say teenagers these days are Internet savvy, they may not be imagining the team of network security whizzes North Hollywood High School is sending to the CyberPatriots national competition in Baltimore this week. While the average young person may be expert at using social media and phone apps, the members of Team Mendenhall — named after the ice glacier home of their school’s mascot, the Huskies — know how to handle what’s “under the hood,” so to speak, of the Internet.

If the RV is bumping, it just means these DJs are home making music

In the midst of a winter marked by storms that pounded Southern California, you might think that Christi Mills and Chris Nalbandian would be over RV life. “That’s probably my favorite part,” Mills admits about the weather. Last year, the two DJ/producers (Nalbandian works under the name Mr. Bootsauce) moved their lives, and their recording studio, into a 2004 Fleetwood Jamboree, Class C. They’ve spent most of the winter in the hills above San Bernardino, on a property owned by a friend who is al...

LA’s first ax-throwing venue in North Hollywood hopes to convince local leaders that mixing axes and alcohol is a good idea

If you’ve visited LA-AX in North Hollywood, you wouldn’t be the first to observe that there’s something strangely satisfying about throwing ax throwing. Maybe it’s the weight of a hatchet in both hands, the thwack of a blade landing on its soft wooden target, or the fleeting satisfaction of a bullseye. Is the burgeoning sport a fun way to spend $25 an hour with friends? Indeed. But should it be paired with one, a couple, or even a few beers? That’s a question being weighed by the city of L.A.’s ...

LA approves permanent street memorial signs at sites of deadly bicycle crashes around city

Fatal bicycle crashes on L.A. streets have long been marked by so-called ‘ghost bikes’, bicycles painted white in memory of a lost life, flanked by flowers and other tokens to form ad-hoc public memorials. They serve as a haunting reminder of the vulnerability of cyclists on city streets, but tend to disappear in time. The L.A. City Council decided to lend permanence to street cyclist memorials on Friday by unanimously passing a proposal to institute some 20 permanent roadside memorial signs per...

These San Fernando Valley girls topped their competition in Boy Scout survival skills contest

For years, twin sisters Fiona and Lauren Quick heard stories from the neighborhood Boy Scouts about really cool camping trips, crazy outdoor adventures and catching and cooking a rattlesnake.

The next step for the Sunland home-schooled 15-year-olds was inevitable. Their chance had arrived. They, like thousands of girls across the country, joined Scouts BSA...

20 Fun and Interesting Things to Do in Los Angeles with Kids

Orange Line project could shorten bus commute by 30 percent, but motorists might be delayed, says Metro

A project now under way to install 35 railroad-style safety gates along the Orange Line could speed up travel time for bus riders — but lead to delays for some motorists. In the “worst case scenario,” motorists at some Orange Line crossings could be waiting an average of 80 seconds or longer for a bus to pass by in 2025 during rush hour, Metro engineers said during an open house event in Canoga Park onTuesday. That’s compared to an average of 35 seconds or less at most the Orange Line crossings ...

Eric Garcetti would ‘look seriously’ at a U.S. Senate bid; what else could his future hold?

At the City Hall press conference in January where Eric Garcetti took the unusual step of announcing that he was not a candidate for president, a reporter asked if he was ruling out a White House run forever or only in 2020. The silly question drew a silly answer. “Garcetti 2040! I’d like to say that right now,” the Los Angeles mayor said, laughing. It’s pretty obvious that Garcetti aspires to run for president in a year to be determined. The serious question is what the 48-year-old Democrat cou...
