(Boyle Heights, CA) Eastside Luv Wine Bar, one of the focal points of the Mexican-American culture in Los Angeles, was vibrated down to its foundation Wednesday night by a Spaniard, Muchachito Bombo Infierno. Standing at the end of the bar with his personalized acoustic guitar and an amplified zapeteado platform, he bought his frenetic energy, stomping rhythms and howling humorous lyrics to the raised stage of ESL’s long bar. It was a not-to-be-forgotten night – or, as one fan said to me, a total hoot. Presented by Sunset Eclectico, L.A.’s homegrown Latino fusion music, arts and dance promoter credited for…

This week, the science community made a major breakthrough when the very first photograph of a black hole made its debut online. The black hole, which has since been given the name “Powehi,” is also the focus of a new Change.org petition to name it after late Soundgarden and Audioslave vocalist Chris Cornell. https://twitter.com/soundgarden/status/1116090276248838145 Of course, this petition — the details of which can be viewed at this link — won’t make any difference as to the black hole’s name, since it already has one. That said, the reasoning behind the petition does make some sense, considering Cornell’s involvement with…
