Notes Of A Dirty Old Man

With scores of Angelenos heading to Austin for the annual SXSW music, film, and interactive conference & festival, this is the perfect opportunity to explore the grubby underbelly of Los Angeles.

Tomorrow, Esotouric, the same unconventional tour company responsible for “The Real Black Dahlia Crime Bus” and the “Crawling Down Cahuenga: Tom Waits’ LA” tour, will be leading an excursion through Los Angeles as Bukowski lived it in, “Haunts of a Dirty Old Man: Charles Bukowski’s Los Angeles.”

A dirty realist, Bukowski’s writing was heavily influenced by his hometown of Los Angeles and now you too can get a first hand glimpse of the gritty world he inhabited.

It’s not too late to sign up for tomorrow’s Bukowski tour, as they take reservations up to the morning of the tour. So stock up on scotch and cigarettes and visit: to reserve your seat.

If you can’t make tomorrow’s tour, I highly recommend that you visit to check out the dozens of other strange and interesting tours Esotouric has lined up in the coming months. Also, for the budget minded, KCRW and KPCC members can take 15% off regular bus tour tickets.

“The people walk with such an indifference I begin to hate them, but then again I’ve never really been fond of anything.”

– Notes of a Dirty Old Man (1969), Charles Bukowski
