There seems to be an unwritten rule that Los Angeles arts organizations can't have an awards ceremony or fundraising gala without a featured pop music star. Katy Perry is poised to sing at the Hammer Museum's annual gala on Oct. 6, and Florence and the Machine will help the Los Angeles County Museum of Art celebrate at its Art + Film Gala on Oct. 27. Now add Moby and Tom Morello to the list. Morello, who stoked the left wing political broadsides of the rock band Rage Against the Machine with his innovative electric guitar playing, will be both an honoree and the entertainment for the Center for the Study of Political Graphics' annual party and silent auction Oct. 21 at Professional Musicians Local 47 in Hollywood.

Eight-time Grammy winner and Los Angeles native Herb Alpert, who in November pledged $30 million to UCLA to establish the cross-disciplinary UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, has now given $15 million to the School of Music at the California Institute of the Arts. In recognition of the gift, to be announced today, the school will be renamed the Herb Alpert School of Music. "Are these gifts accelerating as I'm getting older? Not really," Alpert, 73, said Monday.
