Kraftwerk - Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles

I witnessed one of the most amazing live performances ever. Kraftwerk performed live in 3-D for the first time in Los Angeles in a very long time. All of their shows here sold out within minutes and all shows were at the amazing Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles. I was ecstatic to find out that I would cover the Friday performance at Walt Disney Concert Hall for the Kraftwerk 3-D Concert : “7 The Mix” show.

Roman Polanski's ‘Weekend of a Champion’

Two old friends reminiscing about a long-gone weekend probably seems more like the stuff of holiday gatherings than packed theaters. But when the two chums are Formula 1 legend Sir Jackie Stewart and Oscar-winning film director Roman Polanski, it’s the kind of thing that draws crowds. At least that’s what the two men, along with producer Brett Ratner, are hoping. All three recently gathered (with the director Skyping in from France, where he continues to reside) at New York’s Crosby Street Hotel for a press conference and screening of Polanski’s re-cut and restored 1971 documentary “Weekend of a Champion,” ahead of its theatrical re-release on November 22.
