  1. The Bowers Museum Revisits Manifest DestinyRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday | OC Weekly

    Directed by God to go to the ends of the earth - or at least west of the Mississippi - to spread civilization and democracy, white Americans faithfully went to war with Mexico, planted flags on already-claimed lands, devastated indigenous people who got in the way and forcefully imported others to help build their plantations. The repercussions permeate to this day: Confederate flags, continued racism, land rights disputes, hostility to immigrants - all part and parcel of the self-deception that we were Divinely Intended to take whatever we wanted.

  2. Burger A-Go-Go 2015 Lineup AnnouncedRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Jun 30 | OC Weekly

    While women dominate the charts, especially in terms of pop music, festival bills are still dominated by men. The gender gap isn't happening because there aren't enough female-fronted acts -- it's happening because rock & roll is still a boys' club that fears the power of a woman behind a guitar.

With games and raffle prizes and live music from the goofy superheroes and their villains? At a small theater in downtown Santa Ana? Whoa.

    Friday Jun 19 | OC Weekly

    French singer-songwriter Edith Crash is artistically reborn, but not without experiencing the pain caused by the death of one of the most important people her life. When the musician from the south of France came to Los Angeles two years ago , she brought her political and poetic Inonde album in tow.

  6. On The Pointlessness of 'Authenticity' in FoodRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Jun 16 | OC Weekly

    A note to the reader: What started as a click-friendly piece on "Obscure Indian Dishes You Probably Don't Know," turned into a conversation about authenticity. So, no, you won't get a list here filled with pretty pictures but you will stop asking every Indian restaurant if they have a buffet.

  7. Rapper Lupe Fiasco Bores Instead of Roars at The ObservatoryRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Jun 11 | OC Weekly

    Lupe Fiasco can be a bit on the unpredictable side. Just ask concert organizers in DC who pulled the plug on his Barack Obama pre-inaugural 30-minutes straight protest performance of "Words I Never Said" two years ago.

    Wednesday Jun 10 | OC Weekly

    Now that the luxe- lonchera craze is nearly over, it's time to go back to the roots to visit where it all began: Main Street in SanTana. Every day, nearly 20 taco trucks park on the thoroughfare's side streets, hawking everything from tacos to regional specialties to more.

    Wednesday Jun 10 | OC Weekly

    The change to summer in Southern California isn't all that exciting. We just go from our normally scheduled, nearly perfect weather to being hot as balls every damn day.

  10. Summer Arts Preview 2015Read the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Jun 10 | OC Weekly

    Those bloviating LA snobs who like to venture forth the supposition there's zero culture south of their city . . . they're just circling the wagons, people who haven't been here in the past decade or simply like to repeat the same old bullshit.

  11. GoldLink Fuses Street Rap With House Grooves on The God ComplexRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Jun 9 | OC Weekly

    GoldLink's sound is difficult to pin down. The 21-year-old's lyrics are effortless but intense, tempered by classic house grooves and '90's samples.

  12. CAL1FA Return to the Reggae Scene With a New Name and the Same MissionRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Jun 8 | OC Weekly

    CAL1FA's frontman Ruben Salazar is relentless when it comes to getting his music to the masses and putting Santa Ana on the map. Originally the frontman for local group Badfish, the band ran into their first major hardship in the early 2000s when they had to change their moniker due to a Sublime cover band out of Rhode Island using the same name.

  13. Culture Comes Alive at the East End Block Party This Saturday: CultureRead the original story w/Photo

    Friday Jun 5 | OC Weekly

    The much-hyped event known as East End Block Party returns once again this Saturday, echoing the same large-scale music, art and culture festival vibe of last year's event and colliding with the monthly downtown Santa Ana art walk. Whereas last year's Party was hosted by Obey Radio and LA/Pomona-based music promotional company Moon Block Party, this year's festival looks to be bigger and better, spanning as wide as French to Bush streets and featuring multiple stages of music happening simultaneously throughout the day brought by local collective Konsept, OC Music League and DIY music arm Top Acid.

  14. The Best Concerts in OC This WeekendRead the original story w/Photo

    Friday Jun 5 | OC Weekly

    Alkaline Trio The Observatory Back in the early 2000s, the dark, cultish, catchy songs of Alkaline Trio held a special place among our mixed CDs--and though they may have faded a little bit from our current playlists of new music, they remain forever embedded in our hearts as a seminal angst-ridden, pop-punk band. But the band is as hard-working as ever, putting out an album every few years.

    Jun 2, 2015 | OC Weekly

    Late last year, when Dog Haus opened their first Orange County location in Main Place Mall, we were informed that there was something cool coming. It took six months for them to follow through on their promise, but it was worth the wait.

    May 31, 2015 | OC Weekly

    The last time Silver Lake rockers The Airborne Toxic Event played Orange County, in August of 2013, it was with an 88-piece orchestra at the massive Pacific Amphitheater. This time around they stripped down to essentials--just the five of them with occasional help on keys and trumpet--at Santa Ana's much more intimate The Observatory.

  18. Champagne Cocktails at Gypsy Den Santa Ana, Our Drink of the WeekRead the original story w/Photo

    May 29, 2015 | OC Weekly

    Downtown Santa Ana has a bar for almost every need; karaoke, beer, gay bars, live music, dive, wine, tapas, high-end and even a couple left over for paisas . Really the only thing missing from the scene is a lounge, a place with soft couches, dim lights and the music turned down low.

  19. Jail Benches and Amazon.com at SanTana's Grand Central Art CenterRead the original story w/Photo

    May 27, 2015 | OC Weekly

    My limited time in jail - several hours in Anaheim and a half-day in Washington, D.C., with federal police - did little to prepare me for the heaviness in my chest as I looked at Jimena Sarno's installation Booking Bench Made from Memory at Grand Central Art Center . Suggested by the artist's visit to Wilshire Community Police Station in Los Angeles, the seat, made from a plank of wood on a metal base, isn't designed for comfort.

    May 27, 2015 | OC Weekly

    Willowick Golf Course has long been a marvel: The oldest 18-hole public golf course in Orange County, it's a place where any working-class stiff or retiree can enjoy a round in the middle of the barrio. And it's also endangered.
