Thanks to Yosi for pointing out a really cool free Secret Machines concert downtown tomorrow that’s part of the Public Displays of Affection series. Why’s it so cool? Because instead of buying a ticket, you have to take a train to Union Station and present your Metro ticket stub at the door to get in. Neato.
Public Displays is part of “a series of events designed to show public transportation in Los Angeles a little love,” and if you ask me this is exactly the kind of thing they need to be doing to educate a broader audience about using the Metro. A cool band, hip sponsors and popular special guests will go a lot farther persuading some kinds of people than lectures about civic responsibility.
