Tired of screaming at your television all
by yourself? Would you like to learn how
to scream at the screen like a professional? Then show up and witness Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live as they gush forth their bon mots while 1988 Canadian sci-fi shocker The Brain unspools for your general delight and catharsis. Arguably the biggest thing to happen to weird movies since Harry & Mi- chael Medved’s 1980 book The Golden Tur- key Awards, MST3K’s 30th anniversary sees original host Joel Hodgson riffing alongside new host Jonah Ray and all the robots you’ve come to know and/or love. The Novo, 800 W. Olympic Blvd., downtown; Tue., Nov. 6, 7 p.m.; $45-$55. (213) 765-7000, thenovodtla. com/events/detail/355697. —DaviD COtner

Watch the Blue Wave
Ladies seeking a space to watch the election with others who prioritize equality, inclu- siveness and change in our local govern- ment should hit up Wildfang L.A. for She Came, She Saw, She F*cking Voted. The hip clothing store known for its tomboy- ish fashion and statement tees touts a safe space and lively atmosphere in which to watch the (possibly nail-biting) midterm election results, and it promises a good time no matter the results. They’ll have “pundits and VIPs” commenting on the re- sults, free beer, wine and snacks, plus self- care and services including massage and meditation. The event raises money for She Should Run, a nonprofit trying to change the face of government by providing guidance for women considering running for office. Wildfang, 3430 W. Sunset Blvd., Silver Lake; Tue., Nov 6., 5:30-10 p.m.; facebook.com/events/424868664710962/. —lina leCarO

Breaking the Glass Ceiling
Men may still dominate the restaurant business, but the Skirball’s Women in the Kitchen: Trailblazers of L.A. Cuisine spotlights female faces in the industry. Hosted by Lara Rabinovitch, Ph.D., an author and producer of City of Gold, 2015’s documentary on Pulitzer Prize–winning restaurant critic Jonathan Gold, the three- part discussion series features local female chefs who reflect on the challenges of their careers, their favorite foods and how they’re empowering other women working in restaurants. October’s guest was Lien Ta, co-owner of Koreatown’s Here’s Looking at You. Tonight’s conversation with Roxana Jullapat, pastry chef and co-owner of East Hollywood restaurant Friends & Family, will be followed by a tasting of some of her creations. Skirball Cultural Center, 2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd., Brentwood; Wed., Nov. 7, 7:30 p.m.; $25. (310) 440-4500, skirball.org. —siran BaBaYan

Building Upon the Original
The worlds of jazz and classical music would appear to be diametrically opposed. Tradi- tional classical music often is about disci- plined replication and faithful adherence to a script, whereas jazz is generally free-form and improvisational. But this evening, com- poser Ted Hearne and wild Up conductor Christopher Rountree take a new look at John Coltrane’s monumental 1966 opus Ascension. Instead of merely re-creating that landmark album, the duo are presenting Of Ascension, a series of new works that have been commissioned to invoke the spirit of Coltrane’s visionary beautiful noise and cas- cading series of polyphonies and take them even further into the mystic. The Soraya, 18111 Nordhoff St., Northridge; Thu., Nov.
8 & 10, 8 p.m.; $44-$66. (818) 677-8800, thesoraya.org. —Falling James
