7 Days In Arts


Score! Tonight, the Ford Amphitheatre presents “Movie Music Madness.” The West Hollywood Orchestra, conducted by Nan Washburn, performs several film scores including “Titanic,” “Sunset Boulevard,” “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “Schindler’s List.” Jason Graae lends vocals and a touch of comedy to songs from “Chicago,” “My Fair Lady” and “Lady in the Dark.”

8:30 p.m. $25-$125. 2580 Cahuenga Blvd. East, Hollywood. (323) 461-3673.


Barbarino’s older brother, Columbo and Maude join forces with other notable actors in “Enemies of Laughter,” opening this week at Laemmle’s Fairfax Theatre. Directed by Joseph Travolta (aforementioned big bro), co-starring Peter Falk and Bea Arthur, and starring David Paymer as playwright Paul Halpern, the comedy is luckless Paul’s “deprecating writer gets girl,” Woody Allen-esque story.

$5.50-$8.50. 7907 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles. (323) 655-4010.


External journeys as metaphors for internal change are the theme for the night in “Miles From Myself,” at National Comedy Theatre. First up is Janice Bremec’s solo play, “26.2: Single Twin Running,” her story of growing up an identical twin and her eventual need for independence. Round two is Naomi Grossman’s “Self-Portrait: Girl in Argentine Landscape.” The one-woman show describes Grossman’s coming-of-age as an exchange student in Cordoba.

8 p.m. (Mondays and Tuesdays). Runs through Sept. 2. $12. 733 N. Seward St., Hollywood. (323) 930-1804.


Indie artist Rachael Sage’s new album drops today. Titled
“Public Record,” her fifth CD is described as a continuation of her folk-noir
sound that expands into pop territories. The sequined songstress has played
Lilith Fair and opened for Ani DiFranco. Like DiFranco, she’s also a savvy
businesswoman who’s released all of her music on her own label, MPress Records.



Spirituality and music unite the four artists featured in
the premiere episode of the Sundance Channel’s new documentary series, “Keeping
Time: New Music From America’s Roots.” Country-folk singer Gillian Welch,
neo-klezmer clarinetist Andy Statman, pedal steel guitarist Robert Randolph and
Native American vocal trio Ulali all embrace the task of making traditional,
religious music contemporary. They are highlighted tonight in “Pickin’ My
Religion.” 7:30 p.m.
