Time Out says

This pleasant, open-air, 6,000-seat theatre stages big summer shows by acts both national and local. It’s a bit like seeing a concert in the woods, and rivals the Hollywood Bowl in terms of L.A.’s most magical outdoor music venue. The only downside: The “stacked” parking means getting out of the parking lot often takes longer than the show, and VIP “Quick Parking” is a pricey $75.

What’s on


  • Rap, hip-hop and R&B

A veteran of Suicidal Tendencies and a protégé of Flying Lotus, electric-bassist (and L.A. native) Stephen Bruner now plies funky, jazzy grooves as Thundercat, in which guise his work can call to mind vintage Stanley Clarke and Bootsy Collins, as well as more recent low-end theorists Squarepusher and Victor Wooten.

Will Ferrell’s Best Night of Your Life 2

  • Performances

Will Ferrell hosts this benefit for Cancer for College, which is assembling a staggering lineup of stand-ups and musicians at the Greek Theatre. The October 21 show includes comedians Jon Stewart, Hasan Minhaj, Jo Koy, Patti Harrison, Roy Wood Jr., Rory Scovel and the SmartLess crew (Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes and Will Arnett), plus Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, who’s put together a one-night-only supergroup that features Beck, St. Vincent, Dave Matthews Band’s Stefan Lessard, Cindy Blackman Santana, Dogstar (the reunited Keanu Reeves band), Jack Black and Fred Armisen, as well as performances by DJ White Shadow and Princess.


  • Rock and indie

Now considered a legacy act of the early 2000s, Interpol quickly rose to fame with their debut album Turn on the Bright Lights, which was hailed by both NME and Pitchfork as one of the best of 2002. Since then, the band has struggled through member splits, complacency and solo projects. But don’t count them out: Paul Banks and his crew are back to promote their latest album, The Other Side of Make-Believe.
