LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

If you want to just own the night like the 4th of July but avoid the traffic nightmare that accompanies it, you can avoid the beach and head to Burbank for the Starlight Bowl. To celebrate the 4th of July, they are bringing in the US Air Force, the Burbank Philharmonic, and Stone Soul. You can get more information on the show here. Tickets range from $12-$22 , or you can reserve a box of 4 for $120 (which includes free parking).

Barry Manilow fans can enjoy the Hollywood Bowl on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday with some fireworks to celebrate the 4th of July. It's not really Classical music, but the LA Phil is accompanying him. However, we would much prefer the Frozen Planet in concert series this Friday and Saturday instead.
