HOLLYWOOD—Yes, Christmas was like three weeks ago, but the fun of the holiday just keeps going. How about this sorta-Secret-Santa event at Space 15 Twenty? Just bring in an unwrapped (but new) gift you got for the holiday and exchange it for something marginally better. We wonder how many Snuggies will be going around? And even if you still don't get a gift to your liking, stick around for a sample sale from vendors including Guy Baxter, Tom Tom Jewelry, ARKA Clothing and more. Event is from noon to 5pm. 1520 N. Cahuenga Blvd. [RackedWire]
HOLLYWOOD—FreakCity invites you to hear the Future Sound of LA. They think it's gonna sound like freak funk LA bass and cosmic boogie. We can get behind that! Features Dam Funk, the Keyishe, and special surprise guests. Party starts at 10pm and will probably go all night long. 6613 Sunset Blvd. [Racked Inbox]
