Genre-spanning music, dance, spoken word and visual art collide at L.A. Intersections, a two-part, after-hours festival scheduled at downtown’s The Broad museum on Jan. 27 and March 30.

The series, featuring live music from the likes of Fishbone, Freestyle Fellowship vets Myka 9 and Aceyalone, Carlos Niño and Friends, the new Alice Bag and King Congo Powers collaboration and Medusa the Gangsta Goddess, is a veritable traffic jam of culture from across Los Angeles’ diaspora. The series coincides with the all-L.A. exhibition “Desire, Knowledge, and Hope (With Smog),” which opened Nov. 18 and runs through April 7.

Tickets, linked below, are $30 for each night, with programming running from 8 to 11 p.m.
