This Week @MusicCenterLA

It’s officially summer and the warm nights make it oh so much easier to opt for entertainment in buildings with AC, or alternately embrace the Friday nights on our Plazas!

Center Theatre Group continues with their presentation of the award winning and internationally acclaimed production of Matilda The Musical. Based on the beloved novel by Roald Dahl, it is the story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.

With Summer @ The Music Center in full swing, we are very excited to have dance dominating our programming of 13 Fridays @ The Music Center. This Friday is Bring Your Own Dance Moves (BYODM) featuring Adrian Younge, Garth Trinidad, and DJ Expo. Enjoy non-stop music on the Plaza curated in collaboration with ArtDontSleep and Dublab. Late night bar menu and $5 parking starts at 8 PM. #BYODM

Meanwhile, The Walt Disney Concert Hall is serving as the home for some guest events this week including: Fresno Opera & Orchestra Summer Academy Philharmonic, KJAZZ 88.1 Summer Benefit Concert, and California Philharmonic: Beatles & Beethoven.

BYODM : We asked, and you Brought It!

BYODM June 12 2015

BYODM stands for “bring your own dance moves” and on June 12th that’s precisely what Los Angeles did!  Part of our Summer @ The Music Center Friday night series of free activities, BYODM alternates with our tried & true series of free dance lessons on the plaza, Dance Downtown, and features headlining DJ’s like Peanut Butter Wolf, Egyptian Lover, Adrian Younge, Garth Trinidad,  and Heidi Lawden… just to name a few.

The evening is a simple combination of good tunes, good food, good friends, summer nights and sweet dance moves!  We also have teamed up with SPiN Standard to offer ping-pong tables for any of you who fancy a game or two!   The result is something everyone can enjoy, from the best breakers to the most modest of movers… It’s just about having a good time with your friends in DTLA!   Just have a look at all the amazing photos from the last BYODM night….

Our next BYODM is this Friday, June 26th, so put it in your calendars and plan to meet us on the plaza from 7-11pm!  Remember to take advantage of our Destination Discount if you’re planning on taking the Metro (highly recommended!)  And to be sure you have enough sustenance for a full evening on getting your boogie on, stop by Grand Central Market on your way over and stock up on a few of our favorite eats like Belcampo Meat Co, Ana Maria, or  DTLA Cheese.

See ya this Friday!
