Terraplane Sun: ‘Get Me Golden’

Is there any better way to start off a festive day than with some great music? Turn up your speakers and check out the new video for Terraplane Sun’s “Get Me Golden”, which was released today!

You have likely heard the Venice based band before, their catchy tunes have been featured in films (21 Jump Street, What To Expect When You’re Expecting), TV shows (Teen Wolf) and national TV commercials (CitiBank).

The “Get Me Golden” video was directed by Venetian Hso Hkam, shot by Venetian Mauricio Lizarzaburu and Venetian Tracy Joy was and is the puppet master.

Locally, Terraplane Sun will be playing on November 28th at the Roxy with Youngblood Hawk! Follow Terraplane Sun on Facebook for all their latest news by clicking here! Click here to support them by downloading their music at the iTunes store!

Venetian Carol Tantau Receives Marjorie Braude Award!

From Councilman Rosendahl:

I want to extend my sincere congratulations to Carol Tantau — on receiving the Marjorie Braude Award for Carol’s wonderful work on the Domestic Violence Task Force.

Venetian Carol Tantau Honored for Work on Domestic Violence Task Force

Carol is a constituent from the 11th District and a true leader on a variety of issues, as well as a dedicated volunteer to the causes that are close to her heart. Carol has taken a leadership role on behalf of small businesses owners in Venice, especially those along Abbot Kinney.

Today we are honoring Carol for another hat she wears — as a domestic violence victim advocate.

Back in 2008, the Free Venice Beachhead recognized Carol as A Few Of The Notable Women Of Venice Who Are Involved In Their Community for her work as a victim advocate.

And here she is today — four years later — still doing great work for the people of the 11th District.

Congratulations Carol and thank you for your contributions to the community.
