Rick & Morty Art Show
Opening Reception
January 13th, from 7-9 at G1988 (West)

Happening this Friday is the first ever Rick & Morty Art Show, yup, Gallery 1988 is making it happen before Season 3 drops. The fan base for the cable cartoon show is huge that I wouldn't even call it niche, not when it sells products at Hot Topic.

Friday the 13th
The Cinefamily
611 N Fairfax Avenue 
How could you not go a Friday the 13th without one of the movies from the franchise? While the first two entries of the Friday the 13th film series solidified the slasher sub genre as a horror staple, it wasn’t until Friday the 13th Part III that the iconic element of the franchise itself was cemented. It is here that iconic slasher Jason Voorhees acquires his trademark hockey mask, an image that ranks among horror’s most memorable, and an unmatched staple of Halloween costumes from 1982 to the end of time.

Friday, January 13, 9pm-11pm
TCL Chinese Theatres

Join Mad Monster for the 30th anniversary screening of THE MONSTER SQUAD featuring a special Q&A with Andre Gower & Ryan Lambert!

Our review, it's messed up.
Synopsis: A young brother and sister, roaming an apocalyptic city, take refuge in the dilapidated lair of a strange hermit. He puts them to work building a bizarre cavernous structure, where he acts out his insane and depraved fantasies. Trapped in this maddening womb-like world under his malign influence, they find themselves sinking into the realms of dark and forbidden behavior.

The Jerry Maguire Video Store
Jan 13-29
Free, with priced ticketed events

It would open this Friday, as it seems so bad an idea.

Well...guess I'm not getting any cool video game themed shows as iam8bit "finds itself" in the next year. Everything is Terrible and iam8bit are teaming up for a Jerry Maguire Video Store this January. Even after going to public school in the 90's and early 2000's I was never forced to watch it and so it bares no meaning to me whatsoever.

The concept is an old fashioned video store will pop-up at iam8bit, only have the film Jerry Maguire and sometimes have some fun events throughout its run. Get tickets for those events and scope them out here.

Friday, January 13 - Friday, January 27

They must be doing something right to be going for this many years. The 36th Asian American Expo is happening this weekend in the outskirts of LA proper. Plenty of food and shopping for attendees to get lost in. They also have one of our favs of any event, except when feeding them homeless, an eating competition

Somehow there's an anime convention within the Asian American Expo.

"The event will highlight appearances from celebrities, special guests, eSports, panels, cosplay, VIP parties, vendors, artist alleys, delicious food, treats, and the cutest (kawaii) fashion from our runway stage! The goal for this event is to provide casual fans and otakus to have a venue to gather and indulge in fandom. To meet like-minded people and motivate creativity within the community."

Comic Excitement Convention

A new convention tries to take shape in downtown LA. We're guessing it going to start off small and mainly be for the cosplayers this year. Not a top notch guest list or any special events they can brag about.
