HOLLYWOOD—At the moment, Beth Ditto may be the biggest polarizer in both fashion and gender politics, but one thing's for sure: the girl can sing. The Gossip are doing a free in-store show at Amoeba on Sunset. Don't miss out on a free chance to see what she's wearing (will it be Alexander McQueen? Stella McCartney?), do some premium people watching, and just rock out. Event is at Amoeba, 6400 Sunset Blvd., Tuesday October 27, at 6pm [Amoeba Music]
BEVERLY HILLS—Has this been a good year for Jason Wu or what? Why don't you congratulate him yourself: He's doing a personal appearance at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills this Wednesday, from 1—3. If you're too shy (or, more likely, he's mobbed by adoring fans), you can still check out his latest collection, filled with swoon-inducing dresses and more. [Neiman Marcus]
