Sean Carnage, Icon of the L.A. Music Scene, Ends Weekly Show

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Sean Carnage, the iconic independent promoter whose weekly shows at Pehrspace in Historic Filipinotown have introduced many of L.A.’s most important experimental bands, is ending his weekly run, he announced Friday.

Says Carnage in a statement:

“It’s been an incredible ten years of Monday music, but now it’s time for a break. We started in 2005. Back then it didn’t seem that the shows—which were stylistically mixed-up on purpose—would ever last more than a couple weeks. Thanks to you, we lasted ten years. So many bands got their start in L.A. at Monday Night shows: Skin Town, Health, Dan Deacon, Future Islands, Schwarz, Juiceboxxx, Nosaj thing, clipping, IE, Nicole Kidman, Corima, and over 800 other bands and performers.”

An outpouring of thanks from artists, fans and promoters followed.
