The Weekend Guide

new experimental rock opera!

Slow down, old world.

The modern, postapocalyptic, experimental rock opera follows two faaabulous party kids who, like, totally are not into the current bleakness and form a movement to bring back the glamour with purgatorial results.
Live performances from more than a dozen local musicians, including the L.A. Ladies Choir, He’s My Brother She’s My Sister, and Ariana Delawari. Bonus — it’s free!
When: Thurs. & Fri., 8 p.m.
Million Dollar Theater, 307 S. Broadway, at W. Third St., Downtown (213-617-3600). For reservations, e-mail rsvp@postfactproductions.com.

Thirsty Crow
The new watering hole from the 1933 group (Bigfoot Lodge, Saints & Sinners) is all about old-skool boozing, with American small-batch bourbons, Scotch, and classic cocktails such as Sazeracs, Manhattans, and the ever-modern old-fashioned ($12).
Enough with açai berry-infused ice — bring us the namesake house drink in an old glass jar.
