PREVIEW: Love Letters To LA, 4/26/12
It’s often hard to love your city when there are traffic jams, roads closed off for film sets, and sightseer’s cameras flashing in your peripherals. What Los Angeles residents need is a reminder of why they reside in this City of Angels. “Play Me, I’m Yours” is a sprawling art exhibition in which 30 pianos have been adorned and scattered across Los Angeles. People are encouraged — tourists and dwellers alike — to play these craftily decorated pianos.
On Thursday, April 26th, there will be a pop-up concert at the Egyptian Theatre plaza where over ten local artists will perform at one of the placed pianos. Each artist will play a song that depicts their love for Los Angeles and what the city means to them. The show begins at 8:45pm. Some of the partaking musicians are RACES, Morgan Karr, Kristy Hanson, and City Bird.
Take the time stroll down Hollywood Boulevard on April 26th. The event serves as a unique reminder of why Los Angeles is so precious in all of our hearts. For more information, visit their website at pianoslive.tumblr.com.
