ECHO PARK—In addition to being a famous artist and a ruthless provocateur, Shepard Fairey throws a good party. Saturday is the opening reception for an exhibit called How to Blow Yourself Up from WK Interact. The art sounds a li'l scary: WK Interact "?has turned skateboards and bicycles, as well as three-dimensional panels into instruments of self-destruction, equipped with what appear to be pipe bombs and other menacing apparatuses." But to lighten the mood, there'll be booze, and possibly Shep himself as DJ. November 7 from 8pm to 11pm. 1331 W Sunset Blvd. (213-213-0078) [Racked Inbox]
