TV legend Ed Asner ("The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lou Grant") is the winner of seven Emmy Awards, and has also made a name for himself as a trade unionist and a political activist. In "The Grouchy Historian: An Old-Time Lefty Defends Our Constitution Against Right-Wing Hypocrites and Nutjobs", Asner leads the charge for liberals to "reclaim the Constitution from the right-wingers who use it as their justification for doing whatever terrible thing they want to do, which is usually to comfort the comfortable and afflict the afflicted." He'll discuss it with WGA Lifetime Achievement Award-winner Ed. Weinberger ("The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Taxi, Dear John, The Cosby Show") at All Saints Church in Pasadena. [less-]

"Welcome back, you lovely disco oddballs," proclaims "Music Week", as brothers Ron and Russell Mael -- aka the legendary Sparks -- return to the concert stage and the record charts with their much-anticipated and critically-acclaimed 2017 release "Hippopotamus". The constantly evolving California duo are cult faves who've been around for 40 years, influencing generations of artists with their sophisticated lyrics and art-rock aesthetic. Best known for their 1979 hit "The Number One Song in Heaven," the '10s have been creatively fruitful for the Sparks, as they teamed with indie rockers Franz Ferdinand for a 2015 disc. Now, they'll invade the El Rey in L.A. with cuts from their 23rd album, of which "Mojo" raves: " ... combining Dr. Seuss whimsy, classical miniaturism and the archest humours -- with an invitation to dance -- Ron and Russell Mael return as only they can."
