For decades, Westwood Village was the heartbeat of Los Angeles nightlife while downtown languished in solitude. Westwood had the movie theaters, fancy restaurants and bustling street traffic, and downtown was known as a quiet and intimidating place to be after dark. These days, a humbled Westwood finds itself in the unexpected position of turning to a resurgent downtown for ideas.

Amid his pensive, engrossing paintings now at Roberts & Tilton, Noah Davis has planted something of a joke: a tight, U-shaped mini-exhibition space formed by temporary walls covered in scuffed gray fabric. Three small oil paintings hang within but are impossible to see well.

2002 was the year Sweden broke. The Hives blasted their way onto MTV with their manic garage rock assault. Sahara Hotnights became its female counterpart. Hoary orchestral neo-proggers the Soundtrack of Our Lives drew raves from critics. Now here comes the newest wave of the Swedish invasion. But this time around they're mostly new-wavers, power-poppers, modern-rockers -- with even a little bit of very compelling country rock.

MANNING the decks under the moniker 2 Many DJs, Belgian brothers David and Stephen Dewaele helped usher in the mash-up era in the early '00s by exploding existing notions of what gets bodies moving on the dance floor.
