Launched in 2011 by former skate punk rocker Toby Hwang and fugitive astrophysicist Annie Ko, Love X Stereo is a dazzling Seoul electro rock duo whose dreamy kaleidoscope of stellar synthpop anthems have enraptured music festival audiences across Asia and North America. Selected by Sonicbids/Blurt Magazine as one of 2013’s New Best Kept Secrets and voted by US music critics as one of the top 3 international acts at the 2014 Culture Collide Music Festival, Love X Stereo is set to take off in 2016 with the epic release of their double EP series, ‘We Love We Leave’ and via their headlining stint at SXSW’s perennially packed ‘K-Pop Night Out’ showcase.
Korean Cultural Center in Los Angeles
For more than three decades, the Korean Cultural Center in Los Angeles has flourished through the many artists, film makers, novelists, fashion designers, master chefs and scholars from Korea and serves as a bridge to promote the rich traditions of Korean culture to American society. KCCLA strives to offer the creative public a place of encounter, experience and knowledge in the world’s heart of media, entertainment and culture – Los Angeles, California.
Every other Thursday evening at sundown we screen a feature film and introduce it with a short from a local filmmaker. We will also host a local, live musical act each evening.
Communities are introduced to the filmmakers who live next door. Filmmakers are given opportunities to share their work with a large audience on the big screen. And then everybody gets to watch a great movie!
So grab a picnic and a blanket, get some buddies and we’ll see you at the Picture Show!
