HM157 welcomes Ann Hadlock & City of Butterflies for a deluxe & delightful show dedicated towards enlightening folks as to the potential extinction of our beautiful native butterflies. We can easily rectify this happenstance by planting their natural habitat: the California Milkweed. Attendees are welcome to take Milkweed home to install. City of Butterflies strives to actively educate the public about the importance of native host or food plants in urban areas through hands-on workshops, outreach events, and media production. The reintroduction of native plants in public and private gardensis crucial to the survival of California’s rapidly declining butterfly populations. Most importantly, City of Butterflies are in the process of making an educational documentary about California butterflies and how to save them. Here is a link to their indieggo to raise funds for the documentary. 

Together we can change the game for our endangered Butterflies

HM157 DonBollesMC and DJ: Don Bolles

The Centimeters
HM157centimeters1Even those of us who were around at a time when the Centimeters soaked the stages of goth rock concerts, Cacophony Society functions, and Mr. T’s Bowl with cacklingly evil vocals, Minimal Man synths, somber violins, and gloomy, drug-fueled guitar jangles probably don’t have all these songs, spread as they were over a few albums and EPs and, perhaps, across the detritus-strewn floor of singer Greg Gomberg’s Koreatown bedroom for years and years and years. It’s odd to think that a band that never smiled on stage, except in contempt for all that was pure and holy, could bring so much joy to its fans. But there are people who are peeing themselves to see a return, even in the form of a greatest hits and a few new live shows, of the dynamic duo of Gomberg and Nora Keyes and the lost boys (and girls) who brought their songs to life right on the cusp of the George W. years.

Circuitry and Poetry

Jeff Boynton plays his circuit bent instruments live through multiple amps distributed throughout the space. Over this sonic backdrop, Mona Jean Cedar reads original poetry while simultaneously interpreting it with American Sign Language (ASL) and dance.



Anna Homler


Anna Homler  is a vocal, visual and performance. With a sensibility that is both ancient and post-modern, Homler’s work explores alternative means of communication and the poetics of everyday objects. She creates ”perceptual  interventions”  by using language as music and sound as language.

Highlighting Holmer’s work is the performance/installation project “Pharmacia Poetica” which examines the symbolic and tonal qualities of words and objects. The installation has traveled nationwide as part of the exhibition, “40 Years of California Assemblage”, and worldwide as part of the traveling exhibition “Outside the Frame: Performance and the Object, a survey of performance art in the United States from 1950 to the present.”

L.A. Dronas!

L.A.Drones! hales from both Mexico and Southern California and is a sonic mixture of electro, KrautRock, dub, acid, and noise, through the interaction of loops and drones, but never forgetting melody, performed with vocals, two synthesizers, effects modules, pedals and two mixers with improvisation as an essential part of the performance. ,

John Tottenham

John Tottenham is the author of The Inertia Variations, an epic cycle on the subject of work-avoidance, indolence and failure. His final collection of poetry, Antiepithalamia & Other Poems of Regret and Resentment

John is also an old-fashioned paint and brushes man, whose paintings and drawings have been exhibited at galleries in Los Angeles and New York. His last solo show was at the Rosamund Felsen gallery in July, 2012.
