    Made in America lineup is a vivid look at rap's competing interests
    When it was first announced, the lineup for this weekend's Made in America festival in downtown L.A. seemed an unfocused commercial mix-and-match of mass-market rock, electronic dance and hip-hop. On second and third glances, it mostly is, at least at...

    Idalia Munoz recalled the day in ninth grade when she sat handcuffed in the back of a police car and saw her father's pained expression as he arrived at school to pick her up. "I didn't want to rebel," she said, "but at the time, my mind-set — I...

    Late-in-life Errol Flynn leers in 'The Last of Robin Hood'

    Made in America festival hasn't been an easy sell in Los Angeles
    They made it in Philly. But can they make it in L.A.? That's one of many questions surrounding the debut of the Budweiser Made in America music festival, which will take over downtown Los Angeles' Grand Park this Labor Day weekend. The concert, the...

    Jason Mraz reveals early retirement plan, but first, a 'Yes!' tour

    Red Lion Pub, rebuilt, roars again
    The Red Lion Pub is brand-new from the ground up, but the past is present in so many ways, and a flesh-and-blood example of that was standing there one night a couple of weeks ago. It was the nephew of John Dillinger. "This is a really nice bar," said...
