GofG L.A.'s Best Of Summer 2012: Live Music

by guestofaguest · August 31, 2012

There's plenty to love about summer, sure, but is there really anything more consistently awesome than the live music? It seems like every weekend, there's another festival, another secret performance, another KCRW-sponsored conceptual series. Simply put, if you love seeing live music as much as we do, you had very little to complain about this summer. Let's take a look back at some of our favorite music moments from the past few months. Honestly, there was hardly a week without an event that could have passed for the coolest gig of the year in plenty of other places, but this is L.A., and we hold ourselves to a higher standard. So here's our picks for the absolute cream of the crop.
