Thursday, April 23, 2009 Grid Life

Sticker - Grid Life - Wilshire Boulevard at Stanley

A cloudy day in the city, the day after Jeff Beck wowed them at the El Rey (Rod Stewart dropped by to sing and Paul McCartney was in the audience) and a few days before the LA Grilled Cheese Invitational (really) a time to find some peace in the gird. LACMA the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, on Wilshire will do just fine. The city is a grid, and it's geometric.
