LA Weekly is debuting a new annual music event called LA 101, which will take place this year on the concourse at the Gibson Amphitheatre on Tuesday, November 3. The party, which celebrates the annual Best of LA issue, will not only highlight the best in music, but also shine a light on the area's most innovative food and culture.
The musical line-up for LA 101 will feature Silversun Pickups, whose Swoon is one of the sturdiest, and best selling, rock albums of the year; San Francisco Portland drone-rockers the Dandy Warhols, and Matt & Kim, who just last night snagged an upset win at MTV's Video Music Awards for Breakthrough Video; their clip for "Lessons Learned" features the pair stripping as they walk through Time's Square.
Rest assured we'll keep you updated on LA 101 as the show approaches.
