Concerts in L.A. in September

The Muppets Take the Bowl

Recommended

The Hollywood Bowl Orchestra will accompany a fireworks finale with Miss Piggy, Kermit, Fozzie, Gonzo and co., plus a performance by Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem and a slate of surprise guests that has our imagination running wild.

Ohana Festival

The second iteration of Ohana Festival has expanded to three days at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, with headlining sets from Social Distortion, Eddie Vedder and Jack Johnson, and an arguably more impressive undercard: Pixies, HAIM, Fiona Apple, Ray Lamontagne, TV on the Radio and more. The fest's name, as Lilo & Stitch fans can tell you, comes from the Hawaiian concept of family, and as such the beachfront festival will give back to its own community by donating a portion of proceeds to the San Onofre Parks Foundation and the Doheny State Beach Interpretive Association.

Steve Winwood + Mavis Staples

From his early days with the Spencer Davis Group and Traffic to his solo pop hits and collaborations with the Dead, British soul vet Steve Winwood has been around the block and then some. Whatever you think of his taste, the dude can really belt it out. Septuagenarian gospel legend Mavis Staples opens with a set radiating joy and positivity.

Green Day

After a respite to allow Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong to work through well-documented personal issues, the Bay Area-bred rock trio resumed their arena tour in support of 2012's trilogy of releases, ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tré! The band followed that up with 2016's Revolution Radio, a genuinely well-received record—a revolution for current day Green Day—conceived as a response to violence in America.

Kaaboo

Kaaboo is returning to the Del Mar Racetrack and Fairgrounds with another eclectic lineup of adult alternative favorites—including Red Hot Chili Peppers, P!nk, Muse, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Weezer and Jane's Addiction. The "mix-perience" (yep) comes with clean amenities, artisanal cuisine, fashion pop-ups and local artwork. Views of the main music stage can be enjoyed from a variety of vantage points: on a chaise lounge, in a pool, on a volleyball court or inside a premium cabana.

New Order

Recommended

Barney, Stephen and Gillian roll onward (no Peter, of course), returning to Los Angeles in support of their latest album, Music Complete. The Brits still pack a punch for a bunch of fiftysomethings. They stick with the hits, and that's fine by us, because what hits! "Temptation," "Blue Monday," "Bizarre Love Triangle," "Regret," etc. Nobody had a run like New Order in the 1980s. We'll exclude Prince, because he was not human.

Explosions In The Sky

Recommended

The powerful Texan post rockers—and true heirs to Mogwai's throne—bring their slow-building, soaring, quasi-classical instrumentals to the Theatre at Ace Hotel in support of their first new album in five years, The Wilderness.
