      LA is hit n miss as far as what is going on at a club on any particular date. Check out the LA Weekly and LA record websites:







      Here are some places where you may find some going ons, depending on a particular day of the week:


      Alex's Bar (Long Beach)


      The Echo


      The Five Star Bar


      The Redwood Bar


      And ocassionally these venues will have something worth checking out:


      Viva Cantina (Burbank)


      The Prospector (Long Beach)


      The Juke Joint (Anaheim)


      The Observatory/Constellation Room (Santa Ana)


      Burger Records in Fullerton also has a lot of bands play at the store.


      DJ Nights:

      Lot's of different bars have DJs spinning music on different nights. Here arre a few that might interest you.


      Big Foot Lodge



      Hooefully some others will speak up, as I don't claim to be in the know anymore, and the LA area is a pretty big place.


      These are all great locations/venues above  ^^^


      I know La Cita (not too far from the Redwood) has some cool shows from time to time. Killer little spanish dive located in downtown LA. Also Check out Permanet Records over in Highland park. Great selection of Punk/Garage/Psych vinyl and weekly in-store shows.  

      The Echoplex (located right below the Echo) is also a great spot for shows, The Smell (downtown) will also have some cool all ages lineups from time to time as well. 

      Also Check out El Cid, Los Globos, and Silverlake Longue in Silverlake, these venues have been know to put on good shows as well. 


      Hope this all helps! Welcome to LA!

    • I live a couple of hours from Tulsa, and I'm in the process of trying to get something started.

    • Hey , guys. I'm not the one to ask , I used to live in Dallas , but ,  I have'nt been to Dallas or Fort Worth in about 10 years. BUT , I would recommend you try the Double Wide in Dallas (Near Fair Park). I played there , once , and the people on the staff and in the audience were very cool. Plus , it's a great looking place. I'm told Lee Harvey's is a great place , as dive bars go , if they're still open.   Trees used to be the primo live music spot , but , they closed , several years ago. They re-opened a few years back. You might try them.

      Could'nt tell you much about Ft. Worth. What little live music they had , for years  , was aimed at the  TCU crowd. But , I think there's one or two good places , at least , now.

      You should look into Denton , too. Denton has already usurped Dallas as a center for live music. When I went to school , there , it was largely limited to house parties and a couple of former fast food joints.

      If anyone else gives me any clues , I'll get back with you. John.
