Sketchbook: 'Grease' at the Bowl

July 3, 2010 |  9:00 am

GreaseSometimes it seems that Los Angeles is one burbling stew of subcultures or esoteric cults, each absorbed by their own mystic rights.

The other night one such possessed group gathered at the Hollywood Bowl — fans of “Grease,” summoned by a first-time sing-along in the tradition of the bowl’s popular “Sound of Music” nights.  Fans were advised to bring their best poodle skirt and saddle shoes, biker jacket & shades for a pre-film parade.

The Times dispatched artist JT Steiny to memorialize the colors (pink, mainly), the atmosphere and all that hair. Click on the gallery to see the scene.
