What do you get when you cross-pollinate French pop, old-school country, Leonard Cohen-style musings and Velvet Underground-esque moodiness? Shoofly's "Dirty White Town," an album of offbeat, bilingual tunes that reflect the wild contrasts of life in L.A. It may sound complex, but to Bernadette Colomine and Terry Durbin, who formed Shoofly three years ago, the motivation is simple.

Despite a few lyrical clunkers, Travis delicately balances sincerity and camp. Her dulcet vocals, veering expertly from world-weary to guileless, make every quirk work.

Hidden at the back of Bar Marmont , the Chateau Marmont's exclusive boƮte , is a lavish private dining room drenched in crimson hues, with a vaulted ceiling papered with vintage ads, a large wooden table and chairs and an attractive smoking patio.
