Venues Of Note
Rachel: The Deer Lodge is amazing. It’s a real biker hangout, and on weekends it’s packed with biker gangs and BBQ smoke. They have great live music and occasionally festivals.
Robert: It’s at an amazing house. Outdoors. Community vibe. Feels like a house party with a stage. Great live video imagery to go along with the band (if you’re lucky). Friendly and unique crowd.
Rachel: The Ojai Libbey Bowl is just beautiful. It’s incredible that such a small town has such an impressive venue. Because of the venue’s size and lovely architecture, the town has been able to bring some fantastic acts up here.
Robert: Fun decor. In the middle of nowhere (well it’s near our downtown, but it’s a sort of secluded industrial area of L.A.). Good live music. Fun sort of rockabilly rootsy blues vibe
Rachel: Ecotopia is an expanding conscious community. They occasionally put on small events and festivals and have very interesting performances and talks.
Robert: Generally good sound and vibe. Also a big stage, which is pretty rare for L.A. clubs or actually most clubs in the U.S. for this size. They get consistently good bands coming through.
