    Default LA Detour

    I know it's like in August.. but is anyone else hoping this festival comes back around this year? I thought last years was really good, and had a lot of fun. Basement Jaxx rocked it.

    It was almost all artists who have played Coachella too..

    OUTKAST 2014
    it's finally happening

    I have been in Downtown exactly twice. Once was for Detour. The other time was for Arthur Nights at the Palace Theater. That venue was creepy as fuck. So I left after Bert Jansch.

    Usually it's a $20 cover (unless you have a room there for the night) and the drinks are as expensive as any other hotel bar/trendy club in LA.

    It's freaking awesome. They project movies across the street onto a neighboring building so you can watch them while lounging by the rooftop pool. The people vibe is kinda cheesy but the view is worth the $$.

    The only thing that is extremely sketchy sometimes at The Standard is that they have numerous "private parties" which are virtually impossible to get into unless you have a room there or were invited to it, other than that it's the usual long wait to get in like any other place in LA, if your a guy just slip an extra $20 or if it's really packed $40 with your cover charge and they'll take care of you.

    Ahh. Well I'm a girl so maybe I could show off my hooters!
    The view from the rooftop must look amazing though. I love hollywood/LA

    Sometimes randomly the Standard has cool concerts. But they're never announced, which is dumb. It's a good place for drinks in the late afternoon, before it gets all velvet rope / bouncer-ish at night.

    not into any bar that charges a cover, but I do admit, it's a nice place.


    Oh yeah, LA Detour was dope last year. It's surreal seeing downtown transformed like that. Looking forward to seeing what they do with it this year.
    Hello hippies! I smell patchouli!

    Last year was pretty sweet. Blonde Redhead was worth the price of admission alone.

    And you can't beat the on-site camping
