A show that’s all about surf, a noise rock band downtown and an artist’s view of L.A. as told by installation. The Thanksgiving holiday weekend is quiet, but there are still things to do. Here’s what we have in the Datebook:
“Jeff Ho: The Board” at C. Nichols Projects.
For its annual holiday surf show, this small Mar Vista exhibition space is doing a show around “The Board,” a surfboard shaped by Jeff Ho (also known for abetting the art of skateboarding, as chronicled in the doc “Dogtown and Z-Boys”
). In a sport in which a well-built board can take on practically mystical qualities, Ho will be showcasing half a dozen longboards taken from the template of “The Board,” a now-renowned board he shaped in Hawaii in 1999 and which he used to ride the swells generated by Hurricane Marie this past summer. Opening reception, with performance by Meet Me at the Pub, Saturday at 4 p.m. Show runs through Dec. 23. 12613 1/2 Venice Blvd., Mar Vista, cnicholsprojects.com
