LA is a Mecca for musicians with talented artists showing up in unexpected venues throughout the city. There are tons of talented unsigned bands playing in venues all throughout the city. Part of the beauty of this gig is witnessing talented artists blossom into talented pros through endurance, growth, and hard work.
2010 held an amazing number of live performances in LA. (See slideshow) I am only human, and can only see so many shows. This list may NOT include your fav band, so let me know who they are, and perhaps in 2011, they can join the ranks! Please use comments section below.
