DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES – Is it the end of summer already? Grand Performances has given Downtown three months of diverse cultural experiences, and the series’ final weekend is no exception. Über-tenor Matthew Stoneman (shown here) sweetly sings classic Spanish-language boleros on Friday, Aug. 27, at noon. At 8 p.m. that night, actor and puppeteer Paul Zaloom brings his Toy Theater Puppet Show to the California Plaza Watercourt. But leave the kiddies at home; this found-object-animation satire is for adults only. Come on back Saturday night at 8 p.m., when Turtle Island Quartet fuses its classical aesthetic with contemporary style in an homage to Jimi Hendrix. At 350 S. Grand Ave., grandperformances.org.
