Haute Highlights

Oliver Stone at Book Soup

Friday, Nov. 2 at 7 p.m. · 8818 Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood

Oliver Stone is no stranger to American history. As director of JFK and Nixon, he recollected history in his own intriguing, arguably factual way. Now, Stone has returned with a Showtime series — a more expansive look at American history — and a companion novel, The Untold History of the United States.

At Book Soup, Stone will discuss this latest project, which will surely be as thought-provoking as his other politically charged works.

Admission is free, but the book — an advisable read for those that plan on watching the series — will cost $30.


Alanis Morissette

Friday, Nov. 2 at 9 p.m. (doors open at 8 p.m.) · Club Nokia

As part of her Guardian Angel Tour, Alanis Morissette teams up with Souleye at Club Nokia on Friday night.

The pop rock singer-songwriter has shaken the foundations of the music industry with her signature style and classic songs such as “Ironic” and “You Oughta Know.” Her latest release, Havoc and Bright Lights, has proved equally impressive. Popular tracks such as “Guardian” and “Edge of Evolution” demonstrate the artist’s staying power with her eighth addition to the music scene.

And if her top-notch songwriting skills weren’t enough, Morissette also stuns with her live performances. With her strong mezzo voice and exceptional guitar skills, the Canadian-American artist knows how to entertain an audience. Whatever your reason for attending the concert, Morissette is sure to leave you “Head Over Feet.”

Tickets range from $45 – $69.50.
