We don’t post every show that’s going on every night (in or around L.A.) we just post the goods
according to our collective knowledge. We’re music elitists at heart but we try our best to keep
an open palette of taste with an affinity towards underground, indie and local musicians and
venues. Let us know if we missed something good.
