KCRW’s 5 Things To Do This Week

Written by

SEE: The Photography of Theo Ehret

Photographer Theo Ehret made his name photographing boxers and wrestlers as the house photographer at the Olympic Auditorium. See the late artist’s work at 722 Figueroa, by appointment only.


LISTEN: Tom Odell

Up and coming UK singer-songwriter Tom Odell was one of the top 10 most played artists on Morning Becomes Eclectic last week. And for good reason — his single “Another Love” is undeniable. Jason says he sounds like a “young Chris Martin.” Coldplay fans take note!


EAT: Kang Hodong Baekjeong

This restaurant is in Chapman Plaza, which is the epicenter of Korean nightlife in LA. Jonathan Gold says it’s a top notch Korean BBQ place, but he’s also fascinated by the dosirak, the Korean equivalent of the Bento box.

WATCH: Silver Linings Playbook

Joe Morgenstern calls this film, “deeply serious and blissfully funny at the same time.” This romantic comedy, with a touch of dysfunction, is the sixth feature from filmmaker David O. Russell (The Fighter, Three Kings).


SHOP: Patchwork in Santa Ana

This Sunday, indie arts and crafters are descending on downtown Santa Ana with their handmade jewelry, bags, clothing, toys and more. KCRW will also be there with discounted t-shirts ($10!), hoodies ($25!) and bags ($5).
