The Llano Del Rio working group’s “Scores For the City” is available now, free!
This two sided guide maps locations that have supported oddball behavior in LA, including freeway puppet shows, giving Ronald Reagan the Finger, civic dance pageants, riots, and the gatherings of witches. The front of the map is an archive of documents relating to four events. The backside is an exploration of the way non-conformist behavior in LA has helped shape collective consciousness.
