Burbank’s answer to the Hollywood Bowl, this marvel is a much-loved and frequented concert venue near Stough Park. A wide variety of concerts, from classical to pop, are held in this stunning setting throughout the summer. This beautiful natural bowl offers ample seating, both on benches and in the grass, where guests may enjoy their favorite performers and amazing acoustics to the transporting views of sunsets gradually superceded by starry skies. Visitors are invited to pack a picnic, including drinks of their choosing with no express restrictions imposed, other than non-interference with other patrons’ enjoyment of the event. Pricing is very affordable, enabling music buffs to get their fill during the summer months, after rationing their patronage of rather more expensive concert halls and arenas during the rest of the year.
The former studio of The Tonight Show is now an intimate venue for live music. iHeartRadio Theater is one of the premier stages for top artistes to perform. This state-of-the-art space can live stream on various channels such as radio and television. The predominantly black hued space is accentuated by gold globe pendant light fixtures, polished concrete flooring and plush theater chairs. From music releases to movie premiers, concerts and other events, it is one place to watch out for. Some of their previous lineups include Pitbull, Katy Perry, Backstreet Boys and Train.
Though the name of this restaurant is quite a mouthful, its philosophy is simple: good food and live entertainment. With all the ultra-trendy bars in L.A. for people under 40, it's good to find one where all ages are welcome, including those of the older set. Affordable appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, salads, and soups round out the menu at Joe's, but the real reason folks keep coming back for more is the live music every night. You won't hear some obscure punk band coming out of the speakers. Blues, Rockabilly, Country, Jazz, Swing, karaoke, and classic Rock and Roll are featured every day of the week through great local artists and bands, so be sure to make use of the smooth wooden dance floor.
The Troubadour is a pioneering rock-n-roll venue with a history that would make any music aficionado blush. Founded in 1957, the venue hosted Bob Dylan’s early shows, Buffalo Springfield’s first concert, and the US debuts of Elton John and Gordon Lightfoot. Legend has it that The Eagles met at the club, and that rock manager Herb Cohen discovered Tom Waits at an open mic night. Concerts are standing room only and usually quite intimate.
