The era when there was only the Music Center and the Museum of Contemporary Art is, fortunately, long gone. The problem is, there is so much happening now that it can be hard to choose what to do. Huge concerts fill Staples and the other venues at L. A. Live, while avant-garde theater and dance is available at places such as REDCAT and some untraditional outlets. There are movies, film festivals, readings and much more. Here are just a few of the many highlights on the 2012 cultural calendar.

An Unoccupied Market : The Occupy LA protests at City Hall ended Nov. 1, but its impacts remain. They include changing the nation’s perspective on corporate bailouts, and a dead lawn and a still displaced City Hall Farmers Market. This year, market organizers will seek to repair the damage caused by being exiled from their home of four years to a barely visible spot across the street. Market boss Susan Hutchinson said 2012 will be about re-growing the market, and although some longtime vendors may have dropped out, she expects new ones will fill the available spots. It remains unclear when the Thursday market will return to the south lawn of City Hall. Green Day’s p...

Figueroa St., ( 213) 742-7100 or nba. com/ lakers. Blake Griffin or Chris Paul? Does it matter? Can they be comayors? Does that make DeAndre Jordan chief of staff? And where’s Chauncey Billups in this equation?

It may be for unwanted reasons, but still, the headlines come. Fortunately, after McCourt’s divorce battle with his wife Jamie, a war with Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig and the team’s ensuing filing for bankruptcy protection, the new batch of headlines hint at a future that is rosier ( or, in the parlance of the team, perhaps a brighter shade of blue). Now, long-suffering fans are being presented with stories that indicate numerous well-heeled individuals hope to buy the Dodgers. Some of them are partnering with sports stars of the city’s past. The latest blip came last week, when a partnership between shopping mall developer Rick Caruso and former Dodger manager Joe Torre...
