By Jim Farber | PUBLISHED: October 2, 2018 at 2:42 pm | UPDATED: October 2, 2018 at 2:42 pm The Los Angeles Philharmonic’s 100th season-opening celebration was a bash for the books. Conducted by Gustavo Dudamel, it filled the Walt Disney Concert Hall on Thursday with a potpourri of less than traditional musical offerings, spilled out onto Grand Avenue for a champagne-flowing block party that literally lit up the hall, and ended late into the night swaying to the sophisticated rhythms of Pink Martini! There was not a single note of Beethoven, Brahms, Bach, Mahler or Mozart to be heard. Instead, the evening’s tasting menu, titled “California Soul,” celebrated the orchestra’s association with California’s most notable composer, John Adams; Los Angeles’ most irreverent genius, Frank Zappa; along with music from the movies and songs by the Doors and the Beach Boys, culminating in a confetti-falling, sing-along rendition of “Good … [Read more...] about Beat LA!

In order to enjoy Boston’s upcoming Independent Film Festival, “you don’t have to be a total film person,” said Executive Director Brian Tamm. “Just a person who wants to see great stories.” The festival, which kicks off its 16th year on Wednesday, celebrates independent films from both local and international filmmakers. This year, Tamm said filmgoers can expect a “mix of big, buzzy stuff, and smaller films, local [documentaries], and both local and visiting filmmakers.” Tamm said IFFB also takes cues from other well-known festivals, like Sundance and River Run, to inspire a full visitor experience that extends beyond just film screenings.
