Elliott Smith Wall Fixed Up Yet Again, Caruso Pokes Around AEG

New, 16 comments

SILVER LAKE: God bless the tireless Elliott Smith fans who just keep on fixing up the mural on the Solutions electronics store on Sunset, which Smith made famous with the cover of his album Figure 8. We've seen it tagged, fixed up, and tagged time and again and now it looks like it's getting yet another restoration. Never say die, Smithies. [Curbed LA flickr pool]

LOS ANGELES: HauteLiving talks to LA development hotshot Rick Caruso (The Grove, 8500), who discusses his possible interest in AEG, the LA Live/Staples Center/Downtown NFL stadium developer that's currently up for sale: "We've sort of taken a look at it around the edges ... If there's a part of that which would make sense for us, I'd take a look at it, but the whole package isn't our core business. It's an amazing collection of assets, but the LA assets are the ones I'd be most interested in." [HauteLiving]
