We wanted to drive our own car in Europe, so we bought a car through Europe Auto Travels. Included in the purchase price was a personalized guidebook. This book gave exact routing and suggested sights for our entire five-week trip. It's Europe Auto Travels, 9367 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills 90210. The trip was wonderful and we did not make wrong turns. SKIP and BEA KEITH Pacific Palisades

Axel Willner's alias as The Field has yielded three albums of hypnotic, carbonated dance music. His sound sits halfway between misty shoegaze and the austere thump of his label Kompakt. His latest, "Looping State of Mind" is his clearest mission statement yet — songs double-back on themselves until they become ecstatic. El Rey Theatre, 5515 Wilshire Blvd., L.A. 8 p.m. Sat. $17. theelrey.com .

Leslie Feist's new album, "Metals," is her first since her enormous, career-making breakthrough "The Reminder," with its effervescent and inescapable hit "1, 2, 3, 4. " Her winsome, easygoing and quietly virtuosic singing is still up front, but it finds her moving into some moodier and exploratory terrain; live, she's entirely captivating.

The Line hotel, a fashion-forward new hotel at 3515 Wilshire Blvd. in Koreatown, will kick off a “soft opening” on Jan. 1 with rates of $168 nightly. Before you rush to book -- and from the looks of the hotel's website , it is tempting to rush -- bear in mind that the place isn't finished. In January, while those discounts are offered, the hotel's two restaurants-to-be, nightclub and pool won't be open. In fact, there may be some construction on site. (The hotel's opening has been delayed a few times.)
