This Weekend Only: Go to a Free 80s Throwback Event in Downtown L.A. with Snowfall FX

What do you remember from the 1980s? The over the top hair, the ridiculously bright neon clothes, the music videos…or maybe the outrageous nightlife? If it’s one, or all of the above, you may want to put Snowfall on your list of shows to watch this summer.

FX Snowfall

Snowfall is a dramatic new series appearing on FX from executive producer John Singleton. It explores the introduction of crack in 1983 Los Angeles, and the tremors it created within the culture that are still felt in present day. The show follows a variety of characters from drug dealers to members of the CIA ,as they are affected by the explosion of the crack epidemic. Featuring Damson Idris, Sergio Peris-Mencheta, Carter Hudson, and Emily Rios, this series is a deep and surreal look at the beginning of this dangerous monster of a drug.

In anticipation of this upcoming FX series, there will be a Snowfall pop-up event that is FREE to the public! Starting Friday June 23rd and running until Sunday June 25th, 2017, the public can enjoy this free event at the Hudson Loft in Downtown Los Angeles. While you wait for the Premiere of Snowfall on July 5th, why not swing by this weekend to submerge yourself in some 1980s culture.

    This show would be interesting. I would really want to know what pushed people to manufacture, use, and get hooked on that drug. I want to get a better understanding of that.

    Oh wow, I can’t believe they made it free. I have no doubt it will be packed!

    That sounds like so much FUN! I think it’s hilarious when there are 90’s throwbacks. How could that have been long enough ago to warrant a throwback?

    This sounds like a great show! Love the 80’s throwback theme!

    Sounds like a cool event. I miss the 80s. I’m also intrigued by Snowfall. Can’t wait to watch it.

    That will be a tough series to watch. I remember those years, we did not know what was happening when it all started.
    On the other hand, sounds like some fun activities there!

    That sounds awesome. I wonder if we’ll get any Flock of Seagulls action going on the music front.

    AHHH! I would love to go and dance the night away in my leg warmers and big hair!

    That is so cool! The 80’s were my jam! I would LOVE to go to that.
