Tonight in Rock: Largo's Back

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.

Slow night in music, but make sure to check out Michele Reverte's interview with Newton Faulkner, who plays at the Troubadour tonight.

Also, tonight is the second night of Largo at the Coronet featuring folk musician Colin Hay. "Higher rent and increasingly restrictive parking helped push [Largo Owner Mark] Flanagan away from Fairfax," reported the LA Times a few weeks ago. "But he'd been searching for a 'bigger, better' place for years. 'What I mean by better is, I don't want to force people to eat and drink,' he says. 'I just want to do shows.'"

Refreshments will still be served (think beer, drinks, gelato, pastries) at the 280-seat theatre, which also has a smaller space called The Little Room what holds 60 seated people. One June 22, the documentary about Largo will premier at the LA Film Festival (tickets went on sale yesterday).
