Tucked away in a down-at-the-heels 1926 vaudeville/movie house in a less-than-spiffy part of Melrose Avenue, about 20 women were gathered recently around tables painting Easter eggs. Not your average pink, blue and yellow with transfer designs, these eggs have ancient, intricate designs in bold colors--works of art carefully placed on the brittle surface of an eggshell. They're special for their artistic quality, and they're special for their historical significance.

In the shadow of Los Angeles City College, the intersection of Heliotrope Drive and Melrose Avenue boasts a collegiate, counterculture vibe, complete with avid bicycle activists, a smoke shop, tattoo parlor and a splash of colorful, graffiti-style murals. Yet this little pocket of shops and restaurants, known as "Hel Mel," also offers the more refined pleasures of gourmet gelato, local craft beers and designer lingerie. The junction of grit and polish makes Hel Mel one of the most vibrant, up-and-coming neighborhoods on the hipster map. Cycling Central The Bicycle Kitchen (706 N. Heliotrope Drive, [323]

The Montreal indie rock band's victory was one of the biggest upsets in recent Grammy history, with a visibly stunned frontman Win Butler thanking the Staples Center crowd before playing a second song at the ceremony simply, as he put it in his speech, "because we like music. " The seven-strong ensemble, fronted by the husband-and-wife duo Regine Chassagne and Win Butler, has grown from a cult band beloved by indie websites like Pitchfork to album chart-toppers with last year's "The Suburbs.
