THE FUNTASTIC WORLD OF HANNA-BARBERA: The Paley Center salutes the famous animation house's 70th Anniversary. You love "The Jetsons" design, "The Flintstones" technology, Yogi Bear's laid-back outlook. There's a panel of animators and voice people -- including Seth MacFarlane of "Family Guy" -- and sketches on display. Saturday, August 22nd, 4:30PM, Paley Center
KINGS OF LEON: We'd make a "family guys" segue here, but, hmm. Maybe not necessary. But we are talking about that rocking band of brothers (and a cousin). The Followillian four will be "On Call" -- good ditty -- at The Forum on Saturday, August 22nd; The Whigs are opening.
DIANA KRALL WITH THE LOS ANGELES PHILHARMONIC: The jazzy chanteuse performs at Hollywood Bowl. She has a new album out -- "Quiet Nights" -- and one luscious voice. Will husband Elvis Costello be in the house? He just played a Greek show a few days back. Hmm... Saturday, August 22nd
THE GREEK THEATRE, TWO NIGHTS: Two interesting, band-laden shows, two nights, one venue. Up on Saturday the 22nd: Salsa Festival, which includes El Gran Combo and Junior Gonzalez. Then on Sunday the 23rd: The Heroes of Woodstock 40th Anniversary Tour. Playing: Jefferson Starship, Big Brother & The Holding Company, and a bevy of other Summer of Love-lovin' acts.
FREEDMAN LAUNCH PARTY: For men, and at Ron Robinson at Fred Segal Santa Monica. If you've never had a custom-made shirt, designer Randy Freedman will be on hand to measure. Cocktails, tidbits, and music are part of the trunk-show-y afternoon. Saturday, August 22nd, 2-6PM
