If you're bored in Los Angeles, just step outside. You'll find excitement when you least expect it. That's why we love this city.

Case in point: last night we were content to "take it easy." That translated to a quick bite at the Farmer's Market before watching Rockstar INXS at home. Lost in our thoughts (and a tasty falafel), we suddenly heard the distant clamoring of percussion and guitars. A slave to the music--and our readers, of course--we scarfed down the remainder of our dinner and made a beeline for The Grove.

LAist was pleasantly surprised to find a mini concert underway. The fresh-faced Kyle Riabko was busy wooing an appreciative crowd. He was charismatic, in excellent voice and LAist wished we'd seen his entire set. But alas, we only caught the final number. Thankfully, Riabko was the warm-up act for another band,the bluegrass-tinged Antigone Rising. (For those curious about the correct pronunciation, it's an-TI-go-knee, not ANTI-gone).
