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).
