Best US music festivals spring 2020

Hopefully, you’re not yet at the point where you’re going all Portlandia and attending festivals via drone. Because though the heat, crowds, and cost of a major music festival can be a little aggravating, it’s still the only chance to see your entire playlist live in one place, combining it with an epic vacation to a new city or a beachfront paradise. Spring might be even better than summer when it comes to US music festivals, offering cooler weather and bills with a little more variety. Rea...

Alexander: No. 1 UCLA visits the mecca of softball this weekend — Cathedral City

The best team in college softball will be determined in early June in Oklahoma City. But for a hint of who that might turn out to be, a trip to Cathedral City this weekend may be in order. This is the 17th year of the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic, a tournament that was originally intended to provide a West Coast showcase but has turned into softball’s largest event outside of the Women’s College World Series. It began with 16 teams in 2004. Beginning Thursday and running through Sunday, 30 tea...

Best of Black Floral

I wore the best little black floral dress when I was wandering around Palm Springs, that style of fabric is a favorite. I was reminded how many black floral pieces I have in my closet including jackets, tops, and shoes! Black floral is my jam when it comes to what I wear but there’s a great selection of modern black florals in home decor too. Floral and botanical patterns always feel fresh in spring and summer, the light backgrounds are lovely, but the black background gives a floral a moodier f...

NHL Seattle Has Long Road Ahead

NHL Seattle is still over a year and a half away from putting a product on the ice. The organization and its fans need to exercise patience in waiting for milestones and then building toward Stanley Cup winners. Such milestones include building the arena, hiring the coaching staff, the initial entry draft, and finally Seattle’s first game. The overwhelming talk amongst fans has been focused on when Seattle will release their team name. If fans are this impatient over a team name, how impatien...

Coach's New Perfume, Dreams, Is a Road Trip in a Bottle

It's a late Winter's day when a flood of influencers, editors, models, and perfume and fashion industry heavyweights descend on the quaint stretch of dirt known as Pioneertown, CA. While it might seem an unlikely location for such a gathering, it's actually a fitting place to launch Coach's newest fragrance, Dreams ($62-$102) - a scent meant to evoke a road trip through the American West. My own first spray of Dreams immediately calls to mind wide-open spaces. There are notes of California citr...

Weekend Reading 2.16.20

Another late weekend reading post, but I couldn’t help but spend extra time in the sunshine. The last two days have been those sunny yet mild early spring days that make me want to be outside. I started running again. Right now, it’s more like jogging then walking, jogging than walking. I used to be able to run the 3½ mile loop around my neighborhood without stopping so it’s a new goal to be able to do that again. I have to mix up my fitness routine every few months or I get bored, so I’m back t...

Fantasy Springs Resort Casino has a role in upcoming Val Kilmer film ‘Pay Dirt’

Director Christian Sesma had long wanted to work on a gritty and high stakes heist movie inspired by some classics, but he didn’t want it filmed just anywhere — he wanted it filmed in the place where he was born, raised and still lives now: the Coachella Valley. Naturally, that was the location for his next project, which just wrapped up filming. “Pay Dirt” stars actors Val Kilmer, Luke Goss and Nick Vallelonga. The film is produced by Sesma and “Green Book” actor Mike Hatton. Sign up for our C...

Radio legend Art Laboe, the original oldie but goodie, is still on-air after nearly 80 years

Disc jockey Art Laboe sits behind the microphone in his studio in Palm Springs on a recent afternoon, getting a jump on a few dedications for an upcoming broadcast of the Art Laboe Connection on KDAY-FM/93.5. “We’re going to play a song called ‘Gangsters Get Lonely Too,’” says Laboe, reading off a dedication from a mother to her son. “It goes out to ‘my son Mathew in Buckeye, Arizona, from mom Liz over in Phoenix.’ Says, ‘Happy belated birthday, and I love you keep your head up.

2020 Sundance Movies Sold Include ‘Spree’, ‘Shirley’ and Many More [Continuously Updated]

The 2020 Sundance Film Festival is underway, and we’ve already seen a lot of great movies in the mountains of Park City, Utah. But this year, studios and distributors are being a little more cautious when it comes to picking up any of the buzzed about movies playing at the festival. Last year saw some big deals result in disappointing box office returns, and without many big movies garnering loads of attention, the Sundance market is moving at a slower pace than usual. But even so, there are al...

Spring Desktop & Phone Wallpapers

Today is such a beautiful day! In February, we get a few days with clear skies and soft sun and it’s just enough sunshine to get me so excited for spring. I do most of my traveling in spring and fall, and I’ve been grounded since August when I went to Peru so I’m excited because….today I’m headed to Palm Springs! I’m there on a whirlwind trip for just 48 hours to tour the town, take pictures, and visit with one of my favorite cousins who lives nearby. We try to connect once a year so I’m excited...

One Love Cali Reggae Fest brings local music and good vibes to Long Beach on opening day

Jennifer Paterson walked around the Queen Mary Events Park in Long Beach on Friday afternoon, carrying a neon pink poster with “Free Hugs” written on it, obliging when people stopped her after reading her sign. That spirit of camaraderie, inclusiveness, general good vibes filled the air — along with the odor of a certain plant  — as the fifth annual One Love Cali Reggae Festival opened its three-day run on Feb. 7. “I’ve been coming for five years. I love the music, I like the people, everyone is...

West LA’s Chili Bowl building nominated for monuments list (despite objections)

The Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Commission nominated the Chili Bowl building in West Los Angeles to be added to the city’s list of Historic-Cultural Monuments this week, despite the property owners arguing against the nomination and one commissioner calling the building “not attractive.” The building’s inclusion to the list will now be considered by the City Council’s Planning and Land Use Management Committee before it can be sent to the full council.

Seattle’s Scouts Studying NHL With Focus on Expansion Draft

SEATTLE — John Goodwin had the honour of being the first and it was a bit unnerving. He was a pro scout representing a franchise without a nickname and nearly two years away from having a roster — with an arena still under construction — and walking into an NHL arena for the first time on behalf of Seattle’s expansion team was daunting. “I got there about two hours before. They weren’t even open yet, so I waited,” Goodwin recalled. By now seeing the Seattle scouts show up in places like...

Andy Samberg’s ‘Palm Springs’ Breaks Sundance Sales Records [Updated]

Update: Deadline is now reporting that the Palm Springs deal is actually worth $22 million, not just the $17,500,000.69 that was previously reported. Apparently there is a “built in bonus structure” involved which was not mentioned in the official press release, making it an even more impressive acquisition and bolstering its position as the biggest Sundance deal in history.

‘Palm Springs’ and ‘Zola’: The Yin and Yang of a Still-Vital Sundance (Column)

The Sundance Film Festival is fighting a battle that’s been building for several years, and what it’s fighting for can be summed up in one word: relevance. What makes a Sundance movie relevant? In a sense, the old criteria still hold. It’s some combination of box-office performance, awards cachet, and that buzzy, you-know-it-when-you-see-it thing of […]

Why the One Love Cali Reggae Fest has found a good home in Long Beach

From the minute he stepped on the stage in the parking lot of The Observatory in Santa Ana in February 2016, Micah Pueschel, the lead vocalist and guitarist for rock/reggae group Iration, knew the new One Love Cali Reggae Festival was something special. “It was really great…the crowd was huge and I just remember thinking this was a great turn out, especially for a first-year festival.

Sundance 2020: Lonely Island's Time Loop Comedy 'Palm Springs'

The Lonely Island boys are back with one of the best films they've ever made! Palm Springs is a hilarious, easy-to-love romantic comedy revolving around a time loop concept. I was not expecting to see a new Lonely Island comedy like this showing up out of nowhere at the Sundance Film Festival, but there it is, and it's amazingly enjoyable. And it's actually an independent film that needs distribution (it was bought by Hulu & Neon for $17.5 million and .69 cents) which is strange considering I ...
