Friends Bands and Favorite Venues
I have hung out and performed in many a place in the LA area. I have found great a community of talented artists.
Alas, many of my favorite places have come and gone. However, a few of my friends are still 'playing out' and having a good time.
Others have created cool spaces for local music and I listed a couple links for for events and contacts below.....
Thanks for supporting local artists, Gary.

Paul and I did open 'mikes' over a decade ago. Since then he created Kulak's Woodshed, to support local talent. The Woodshed is a combination of a cafe, living room studio, & live webcasting station.
