L.A. Contemporary Dance Company: Cave…A Dance for Lilith

Friday, Nov. 9 — Saturday,

Nov. 17 at 8:30 p.m.

Sunday, Nov. 18 at 7:30 p.m.

The Brewery

Move over, Eve: The L.A. Contemporary Dance Company’s latest show focuses on Lilith, Adam’s first wife in Judaic folklore.

Known as one of the founders of original sin, Lilith abandoned Adam for an affair with an archangel, eventually forcing God to create Eve, who would hold the title as the mother of the human race as a substitute. Now, with Cave…A Dance for Lilith the L.A. Contemporary Dance Company puts the focus back on the demonic first woman. The show, written by Aaron Henne and choreographed by Kate Hutter, uses innovative choreography to draw parallels between the creation story and contemporary issues. But no matter your religious background, catching this groundbreaking show will put an interesting perspective on the nature of human relationships.

Tickets are $25 at the door, $20 online.


Mumford and Sons

Saturday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m.

Hollywood Bowl

Mumford and Sons kicks off the first night of its L.A. stay at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday.

Attendees will hear songs from the band’s latest album Babel, including the hit track “I Will Wait.” And the forecast for cooler temperatures means it will be plenty appropriate to sport your best knit sweater to complement the English band’s fresh folk-rock sound.

Mumford and Sons aren’t scheduled to perform in the U.S. again until February, so catch them now before you grow sick of the band’s radio overplay.


All Ages: The Boston

Hardcore Film

Friday, Nov. 9 – Saturday,

Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m.

Spielberg Theater at the Egyptian

Fans of punk rock will be pleased to welcome All Ages: The Boston Hardcore Film to the Egyptian Theater this weekend.

The new documentary by director Drew Stone follows the development of punk rock in Bean Town in the early ’80s. All Ages explores the do-it-yourself ethic that contributed to ideologies of individualism and anti-commercialism of the punk period, focusing on both the talented musicians of the era as well as the mentality of the teenage generation first exposed to this rock subculture.

Need another incentive? The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Stone and a few influential leaders of the DIY movement.

Tickets are $9 for students.
