Each month, Fry Madness publishes our guide to the best things to do in the Los Angeles Historic Core and surrounding areas. Of course, we’re a little biased about how great the Historic Core is, given that we’re located smack dab in the middle of it. Here’s your September 2017 guide to what to do in Los Angeles. And, of course, don’t forget a late-night visit to Fry Madness. We’re here for before-the-show snacks and drinks, and to satisfy those very late night cravings. See you soon!
On September 1 at 7 pm, you can catch the last night of this season’s Dance DTLA and DJ Nights at Grant Park. The event is in its 13th year. The last night of the season is salsa night, one of the best nights of the year for dancing up an appetite, or watching the action and listening to great music. Either way, Fry Madness is just a short walk down the way, and we’ve got what you’ll need to satisfy that hunger you’ve worked up on salsa night.
The Downtown Independent
Don’t miss this month’s Channel 101 screening. Every month the Downtown Independent screens five 10-minute shows selected from artist submissions. You may see new pilots, or new episodes of the last month’s favorite shows. Screenings are at 8 pm or 1 am. So, whichever time you select, you can head straight there from Fry Madness.
You can also catch MotoGP racing on the Big Screen at the Downtown Independent. And, it is free on September 10 and September 24 from 2 to 4.
The Great Rock and Roll Flea Market
It’s free, and it’s great fun, at the Regent Theater on September 3 from 10 am to 3 pm. You’ll find impressive, eclectic, hand-selected vendors and a curated experience created by michael Andrews and Paul Svendsen of Inheritance. If you like weird, vintage, unique, and unusual, you’ll love this event.
Drag Queen Bingo: Live!
Whether you are visiting Los Angeles for the first time, or you’ve lived here for years, you need to go to Drag Queen Bingo. The wisecracking and smack-talking hostesses have turned this traditional game on its head and made it the perfect night out. It is free, starts at 8 PM every other Tuesday, and there are prizes! Join the fun on the hill street platform at Grand Central Market.
Battle of Santiago
This Canadian group will be performing at the Levitt Pavilion on September 3 at 7:30.It’s the perfect event to attend to get you ready for a Fry Madness extravaganza. The band has been described as an epic soundclash of Afro-Cuban vocals and rhythm, with a uniquely canadian twist. We don’t think it gets more eclectic than that! They are very likely the next big thing on the thriving Canadian indie rock scene. Don’t miss them.
Sunday Sessions at Grand Park
Don’t miss Marques Wyatt and DEEP-LA at the last Sunday Sessions of the summer on September 17 at 2 pm! This tribute to the LA house music scene is free, and open to everyone. DEEP has been a cornerstone of the LA music scene for more than 18 years, so if you haven’t experienced one of their shows, you definitely don’t want to miss this.;
The Chronicles of Witch Taint: A True Black Metal Comedy
This is our final, not-to-be-missed event for September. This live, hysterical, dark show is presented by Metal Assault & The Echo. See it at the Echoplex on September 6 at 8:30 pm. All the laughing you’ll do will definitely prepare you for a feast at Fry Madness. The live show features comedians Dave Hill and Phil Costello. You’ll laugh your head off, and you’ll find it hard to believe that the show is actually a re-enactment of a surreal email exchange that took place between two grown adults who should know better.
Stay tuned for next month’s event calendar. We’ll keep you posted on everything from the weird to the wonderful all year long. After you’ve had your fun in this wonderful place we’re lucky enough to call home, stop by Fry Madness and try something new, like our chicken liver fries, lobster fries, nutella fries, or marshmallow fries. You’ll be glad you stopped by. Our fries are the best late-night munchies and craving-busters in town.
