The Viper Room

A small venue with a max capacity of 250, the Viper Room has played host to some of the best Grunge and Indy Rock bands of the past 25 years. Current favorites include the Tom Petty tribute band, Petty Cash and The Real McKenzies, headed by legendary punk rocker, Paul McKenzie.

The Roxy

The first venue to show the legendary Rocky Horror Picture Show, the Roxy has played host to renowned talents like Alice Cooper, John Lennon, and new blood like The Beths and Jedi Mind Trick. If you’re looking to touch a piece of music history while you enjoy some excellent tunes, it’s well worth the drive from Burbank to check out the Roxy.

The Wiltern

Located in downtown L.A., this stunning 1930s Art Deco landmark features a huge variety of talents from classic rock tributes to world-class musicians like sting and even Philharmonic orchestras. If you feel like catching a flick, you can sit in on a movie screening of one of your favorite classic pictures.

Echoplex

An indie music venue located on Glendale Blvd. in Los Angeles, the Echoplex plays everything from classic 90s rock to Soul Train tributes and European punk. A smaller venue offering seating for 350, music lovers often have a wait to get inside, but find that it’s well worth it. If you’re searching for something unique and cutting-edge, you’ll find it here.

The Hollywood Bowl

No mention of music venues would be complete without the Hollywood Bowl. Head in towards North Hollywood, and you’ll land at this legendary venue. The outdoor bandshell, built in 1929, has played host to public figures like Franklin Roosevelt and musicians ranging from Nat “King Cole” to The Doors and even Alicia Keys. The dry climate makes it the perfect place to relax for an outdoor concert virtual any day of the year and makes our list of places well worth navigating the streets of L.A. for.
