One of the beautiful things about living in Los Angeles is having the option to enjoy live music at world-famous outdoor venues very comfortably well into the fall months. That's why awesome shows are still ongoing at places like the Hollywood Bowl and The Greek. Of course kickass shows are also coming up at local indoor venues, so whether you prefer to experience performances from acts like Grimes, The xx and Florence + The Machine indoors or amongst the elements (which we highly recommend while it's still an option), we bring you our picks for the best live music going down in L.A. this week.
Even though the summer is winding down and the temperatures in Southern California are plummeting back into the high 90s, the live music scene is doing anything but cooling off. The next week promises a dazzling array of concerts around Los Angeles from a wide spectrum of different artists like Animal Collective, Black Star, Dead Kennedys and Ladyhawke to name a few, with something for everyone (except people who don't like music. Weirdos). More»
Well, summer is officially over, but that doesn't mean The Summer Of Live Music is anywhere close to being done. The fact is, hot weather in September is nothing new, and that means that there's a plethora of outdoor concerts, weekend festivals, rare touring acts, and innovative shows to keep us all occupied from now until the World Series. Enough, in fact, that we couldn't in good conscience let you go through the week without a comprehensive guide. So whether you're angling to check out My Morning Jacket on their three-day stand at The Wiltern or JJAMZ representing in San Pedro for the Lobster Festival, just make sure you get out of the house, and Go See A Show!

You might not realize it yet, but you're in a bit of a predicament this weekend. With an almost unbelievable amount of music festivals, big-name tours, free shows and local superstars all playing live in the next few days, how are you ever going to prioritize? Well, to help you get through this, we humbly submit another installment of Go See A Show, our picks for the most kick-ass live music to check out in the L.A. area this weekend. Consider it a public service from us to you. More»
Well, with all our big talk about the unstoppable Summer Of Live Music, even we have to admit that as we get into the dog days, things have slowed down a half step. It makes sense, though: a lot of big names are on national or international tours and your favorite bands are playing mega-festivals everywhere from a beach on the Gulf Coast to a field in rural England somewhere. But don't be alarmed; what we're lacking in volume, we're making up for in sheer quality. So just like any other week/weekend, you have no excuse not to get out there and Go See A Show!
Common sense would indicate that the best time of the year to live in L.A. would be in the winter, when your friends everywhere else are freezing their tucheses off and the worst you need is a light sweater. But actually, it's just as nice now, when your buddies in Brooklyn are pretending to enjoy 90% humidity and you get to choose from the full range of summer options, from gay waterparks to pool parties. But don't get too tired in all that sun, kiddies: there's so much good live music coming up that you need to save something in the tank for the evenings. So rock out during the day, but when nighttime rolls around, don't forget to Go See A Show! More»
Thank heaven you guys hate taking the night off, because, as we tell you every week, there are ever fewer opportunities to do so as the Summer Of Live Music rolls onwards. This week, we bring you moody new wave soundscapes at everyone's favorite cemetery/performance space, classic subversive funk-metal, soulful acoustic guitar, and even one very angry, very large white rapper. Simply put, no matter what genres you are, or aren't, into, you're in for a treat this week, so why not make tonight the night that you Go See A Show? More»

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
