Exploring Memory and Loss
Mario Ybarra Jr. and Karla Diaz founded Slanguage in 2002 as a loosely affiliated artist collective. Its evolving membership makes art, curates shows and generally does whatever woke-minded interdis- ciplinary action is required to get the beauty and knowledge out to as many people as possible, making incursions from both deep inside and way outside the mainstream art world purview. Their current residency at the Armory Center’s off-site project space, a formerly residen- tial property fittingly called La Casita is termed a “social sculpture.” This means that Slanguage recombines elements of site-specific materials recycling, perfor- mance, public engagement, research into local history, and the sights and sounds of the neighborhood — from local artists to nearby schools and street vendors — in producing staged events, mask-making workshops for all ages, and random acts of real life, condensed. La Casita, 805 N. Madison Ave., Pasadena; Sun., May 13, 2-4 p.m.; Wed., May 16, 6-8 p.m.; Sun., May 20, 2-4 p.m.; free. us/news/slanguage-in-residence-at-la- casita-pasadena-ca. —Shana Nys Dambrot
Mom Humor
What better way to spend this Mother’s Day than by laughing at some real moth- ers? In tonight’s edition of Those Mag- nificent Moms, comedians and their own moms pair up and do anything from sing- ing, acting, dancing or even just suddenly nagging at each other in a plot twist no one sees coming — except for older kids and their parents who really know how it is after a while. It’s also an unexpectedly poignant evening — because, when you think of it, how many more chances do you have to turn to your mom and tell her that’s she’s magnificent? UCB Franklin, 5919 Franklin Ave., Hollywood Hills; Sun., May 13, 7:30 p.m.; $8.50. (323) 908-8702, —David Cotner
Not Your Typical Mother’s Day
For a certain kind of mother, waiting for brunch at an overcrowded fancy restaurant is not the ideal way to spend Mother’s Day. A delightful alternative with entertainment and an optional
al fresco brunch is MOMentum Place. Nestled in pastoral Topanga Canyon, the venue that hosts summer Shakespeare is turned over on Mother’s Day to Lexi Pearl, who curates an eclectic parade of
dance, circus, aerial and music perform- ers. The preshow buffet brunch ($30) is available starting at noon in the theater’s parklike environs, with picnic tables for dining, room for kids to run around, and a setting for adults to appreciate spending a special day in a special part of this city. Casual dress and cushions for the ter- raced amphitheater seating are advised. Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum, 1419 N. Topanga Blvd., Topanga; Sun., May
13, 2 p.m., $35 advance, $40 at door, $15 students, $10 children 12 & under. (310) 455-2322, —Ann Haskins
mon 5/14 COMEDY
Sex Ed
Not to be confused with the slightly perfunctory wonder of TED Talks, TEDxxx: Ideas Worth Spreading is a night of people inspiring you to evolve as individual, adult, sexual human beings. Produced
by Philip Labes, it features chortlesome confessional gooeyness from Sabrina Brennan, Jaquis Neal, Ash Webb and “more” — which is really what you should want from sex in the first place. You’ll learn more about the nethers of your neighbors than you ever thought you could from a comedy club, and maybe you’ll come away with a greater understanding about what your weird deal is with sex, anyway. UCB Sunset, 5419 Sunset Blvd., East Hollywood; Mon., May 14, 10:30 p.m.; $8.50. (323) 908- 8702, —David Cotner
Disney’s Dark Side
Villains are always much more interest- ing than heroes — if only because it’s the villain around which the hero’s journey revolves, not the other way around. Broadway Sings Disney is your chance to hear Disney villains’ horrifying songs of threat and perfidy as rendered by stars from Broadway, cinema and television. Whether it’s star solos by Scar from The Lion King, Captain Hook from Peter
Pan or the Horned King from The Black Cauldron, these singers will take you back to those thrilling days of yesteryear when you were young, impressionable and easily terrified by cartoons. Rockwell Table & Stage, 1714 N. Vermont Ave., Los Feliz; Mon., May 14, 6:30 p.m.; $20 (two- drink minimum). (323) 669-1550, tickets. 2eaae696532f4ff6. —David Cotner
