The electronica crew Gotan Project and the Beatles-indebted (clearly!) act Revolver are other highlights. Various venues, Thu.-Sat. $10-$35 per show. http://www.oohlalafestival.com

It wasn't until the programs came back from the printer that the L.A. Film Festival's leaders saw how tricky the move from Westwood to downtown L.A. might be. Last year's programs were etched in a shade similar to UCLA blue.This year the festival inadvertently picked USC Trojan colors, cardinal and gold. "It was brought to our attention from some of our friends in Westwood that they felt we had shifted allegiances, and I was like, 'Oh my God, no!'" said Rebecca Yeldham, the festival's ever-diplomatic, Australian-born director during an interview last week.
