5 Things To Do This Week In L.A.

If the 24-hour donut show is any indication, this week is filled to the brim with sweet offerings! Listen to Azure Ray's new album (live!), or join a discussion about the iconic poet Sylvia Plath. No matter what, set your alarm clocks for Saturday morning's yoga sesh with Flavorpill and Naked Juice at The Getty — sure to be the best way to end your hectic work week.
Celebrate The Arts At This Benefit Bash
Boogie for a good cause this Friday with the folks at The Art of Elysium. The fourth annual Genesis event will include multiple musical performances by mystery guests (sure to be stellar, considering last year's lineup), and a live fashion and art installation. Tickets are $150 or two for $250, and every penny goes towards the project's misson of providing ill children with artistic workshops.
When: Friday, September 21, 9 p.m.
Where: Siren Orange, 1050 North Orange Drive (at Santa Monica Boulevard); 323-960-9045.
Preview Azure Ray's New Album, Live!
The raven-haired duo will be celebrating the release of its latest album, "As Above So Below," along with special guest SoKo. Tickets are only $25, and we hear the new AR tracks are a departure from the group's signature sound — making this a can't miss event for any music junkie!
When: Friday, September 21, 8 p.m.
Where: Largo, 366 La Cienaga Boulevard (at Oakwood Avenue); 310-855-0350.
An Evening With Sylvia Plath, Sort Of ...
The famous poet's life and death is fascinating to writers and non-lit-geeks alike. Join local poet Carlye Archibeque for a lecture all about Plath's legendary work — time to dust off Ariel and reacquaint yourself with the prose!
When: Friday, September 21, 7:30 p.m.
Where: Beyond Baroque, 681 Venice Boulevard (near Pisani Place); 310-822-3006.
Feast On Delicious Donuts With Our Friends From LACMA
To mix things up this year, the museum's staff will be curating the fare for the 24-hour donut show in conjunction with a screening of Christian Marclay's 24-hour film, The Clock. What a treat!
When: Saturday, September 22, noon
Where: ForYourArt, 6020 Wilshire Boulevard (between South Orange Grove Avenue and South Ogden Drive); no phone.
