CivLAvia: Heart Of LA

September 18, 2013 — Leave a comment

CicLAvia: Heart of LA returns to the streets that started it all, explore downtown Los Angeles on bike, foot, stroller, and many more creative means of locomotion. The Heart of LA route follows in the footsteps of their first five events and helps Angelenos rediscover the origins of the City of Angels. Whether you’ve ridden these streets before or are new to CicLAvia, the Heart of LA route promises something new to discover.

cic-la-via

CicLAvia makes the streets safe for people to walk, skate, play, and ride a bike. There are activities along the route. Shop owners and restaurants are encouraged to open their doors to people along the CicLAvia route.

575

Have a problem with your bike? Stop by any one of the five hubs along the route to see a bike technician… for free! However, please make sure to service your bike prior to coming to CicLAvia. Our free bike repair is only for minor repairs: tire pumping, popped chains, etc. Please do not come to CicLAvia expecting to get a full service repair.

575

All pedestrians are welcome at CicLAvia. You may either walk in the streets to the right of the bicyclists or on the sidewalks. If you’re in the street, stay to the right and move to the sidewalk if you feel that there are too many bicycles in the street at any given time.

Here is the route:

Ciclovías started in Bogotá, Colombia, over thirty years ago as a response to the congestion and pollution of city streets. Now they happen throughout Latin America and the United States, connecting communities and giving people a break from the stress of car traffic. The health benefits are immense. Ciclovías bring families outside of their homes to enjoy the streets, our largest public space in the city.

c1

In Los Angeles we need CicLAvia more than ever. Our streets are congested with traffic, our air is polluted with toxic fumes, our children suffer from obesity and other health conditions caused by the scarcity of public space and safe, healthy transportation options. CicLAvia creates a temporary park for free, simply by removing cars from city streets. It creates a network of connections between our neighborhoods and businesses and parks with corridors filled with fun.

Brokechella

April 12, 2013 — Leave a comment

A music fest for the rest of us: Brokechella returns with its 3rd edition in the heart of downtown Los Angeles to once again serve all of those who don’t have the dough for a weekend in the desert. Don’t miss what the LA Times recognized as the community experience that skips “the mortal terror of your credit card statement [at other festivals]” and “revels in staying at home.” Doubling in size year to year, Brokechella 2013 is sure to yet again swarm with a giant crowd, the best of acts from LA and beyond, mouth-watering eats, and surprises galore!

Brokechella-2013-Flyer-Final-2-1-827x1024

Last year’s Main Stage featured Infantree, LA Font, Rumspringa, Big Moves, and yOya, among others. Inside, bands played all day to packed crowds, while DJs led an army of dance fiends at the Jarritos stage outside. Come be a part of the oh-so-cheap magic!

Since cARTel was in its infancy, one of its most regular and beloved events was known as Community Pool. Bands, comedians, and variety acts would come together to share their talents with fellow Los Angeles artists. The event grew more and more popular over the years, consistently outgrowing its venue. What started at a coffee-house in Venice soon moved to a black box theater in Westwood, then to a multi-story club Downtown that could hold two stages, and finally to a giant warehouse space in Downtown LA.

Screen Shot 2013-04-03 at 9.25.52 AM

So how did it become Brokechella? In 2011 when planning their Spring Community Pool, they realized it was falling on the same weekend as Coachella. Not a group to shy away from a challenge, they decided to embrace it, and welcomed 400 people into the very first Brokechella held at the Airliner downtown. Food trucks, face painting, fantastic art, and all for a measly $5 price tag. For a while, they continued the Broke Concert Series at the Airliner, with BrokeSmash in the summer and BrokeBeast around Halloween, then decided to focus solely on Brokechella and making it *the* place to be in Los Angeles during Coachella’s second weekend.
