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 in our Los Angeles Concert Calendar (Feb. 18-24, 2013).


Click on the venue links to buy tickets and for more info. Set times are added to the show list if and when we receive them and are subject to change.
