I saw Billy Joel’s Madison Square Garden residency twice, I was there for The 1975’s infamous December 2014 show at Terminal 5, aka Kissgate (to be gaylor on main), and I caught Bruce Springsteen’s cameo in Bleachers’ Radio City set last summer.  I’ve seen the 1989 Tour at Staples Center, been backstage for Wyclef Jean, and geeked out at Ben Fold’s Grammy Museum performance. But my favorite shows ever have been at the Wiltern Theatre in L,.A.It’s a gorgeous art deco vaudeville era theater, and former Warner Brothers movie palace, so just being in the space feels monumental and magical.  Two bands, on separate occasions, made it transcendent for me:  The Mowglis, with their warm fuzzy indie rock and their pure joy onstage, enveloped me in their spirit of universal love. And Smallpools, a band I’ve seen many times, me...

It sparked a passion for animal conservation that led him to raise African eland, large antelopes with oxlike bodies, and eventually inspired him to found Safari West, a 400-acre nature preserve tucked amid the rolling hills of Santa Rosa, in 1993.For Lang and his wife, Nancy, a zoologist, this is more than just a wildlife refuge. It’s their life’s work. During the devastating 2017 Tubbs Fire in Santa Rosa, Lang refused to abandon the preserve. As the flames approached, he made everyone else evacuate, grabbed a garden hose and a shovel and fought the fire. He stood guard all night, making sure that all 1,000 animals — from the giraffes and the cheetahs to rhinos and ...
