Cooley (Founder & CEO of The Abbey Food & Bar, started a conversation with a guest who worked for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. The guest explained they were in need of toys, that by September the toy inventory is depleted and the hospital runs out of toys until Christmas donations. Christmas in September was born and it now one of the most popular fundraisers The Abbey hosts. The event has provided tens of thousands of toys for children and families in need. Come bring a toy and have a drink. Donations required. Florence and the Machine: The High As Hope Tour 2018, Tue. Sep. 25 @ 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM at Hollywood Bowl (2301 Highland Avenue). Just to get onstage, Florence Welch has to induce herself into what she calls a “trance state.” She listens to whatever music she’s been loving lately and simply zones out. As she’s been readying herself for months of twirling dervish performances on Florence and the Machine‘s latest North American tour, she’s been listening up, a demanding Hollywood Bowl crowd in mind. “Sometimes I’ll put on something and listen to it over and over again,” she told Rolling Stone. “I have to start giving myself over to whatever it is that’s in charge of performances — the performance spirit or whatever the fuck it is. I don’t know, because it’s not really me.” Tickets available at http://hollywoodboxoffice.com/
