View Full Version : general LA/Hollywood gigs?

04-15-2008, 11:43 PM
I'm kinda new to all this, i've been what some would call a "lurker" for a while purely because this is my first Coachella, i'm English and don't have a lot to add to the conversations/threads and backpacking it's hard to justify spending internet credit on forums.


I am kinda killing time at the moment in Hollywood until my AmTrak Coachella Express takes me to the promised land and all I'd like to know is..

Are there are gigs on between now, the 15th of April and the 24th of April (there Has to be right? Right!?) that I could go to?

The reason I ask is because I've searched high and low for gig guides/calenders and things that I'd normally use back home but have thus far failed in seeking out any gig nights.

Thanks in advance,

Upcoming.org (http://upcoming.yahoo.com/search/?search_placeid=h6Mf40eYA5nylncXiA&rt=0) is a nice resource. It should help you locate some great gigs around town. You will have to weed out the crap, but it is worth it.

if you're heading out to the desert right now, good luck finding anything. you'd most likely have to come back to la for any shows.

try pollstar.com they're what i use.

Islands is playing UCLA for free on the 24th. The No Age show at the Library should be awesome. I'll be there. If you like that sort of stuff and are 21, go to Spaceland on friday to catch Pre and the Mae Shi. It's around 10 bucks, and it's going to be a great show. The Mae Shi are fantastic live. Also, No Age is playing one day prior at some dude's house. PM me if you want any more info.

It all depends on how much money you're willing to spend for a good show. Jay-Z and Mary J are at the Hollywood Bowl Wednesday but it's really pricey.
http://www.jambase.com is another great resource for live shows.
