Sunset Boulevard is chock full of ghosts of entertainment's past. Artist Dennis Hoekstra realized this when he learned the history of the building now occupied by ltd los angeles. In the 1970s it was the site of the glitter rock club Rodney Bingenheimer's English Disco, managed by the eponymous L.A. rock kingmaker and radio DJ dubbed "the mayor of the Sunset Strip." In July, the gallery presented re-creations of the original venue's DJ booth and VIP area, meticulously reconstructed from vintage photos. Hearkening back to the site's former purpose, the installation will act as a venue for musical acts until July 2016.
This week, the Fell-Apart Team (writer Jan Tumlir) and the Bushes (musician Nick Lowe and artist Ry Rocklen) perform.
