As the days get shorter and the nights grow longer, finding good concerts becomes a necessity. Our advice? Cozy up with a cocktail and some of our favorite local bands at the Love Song Bar! Located downtown, conveniently between The Regent and Prufrock Pizzeria, the Love Song is a staple in the Downtown music scene. We’ve booked an eclectic mix of genres and performers just for you, and we can’t wait for you to stop by and listen! We’ve highlighted a few of our favorite shows below, but you can check out the full lineup here.
As a reminder, all shows are FREE and 21+.
Champagne Jam (Nov. 12): Coming up this Sunday, November 12, we’ve partnered with the Grand Ole Echo for an evening of music and $14 bottomless mimosas (!!). Country-flair artists Desure and Lasers Lasers Birmingham will be taking the stage, putting their own unique twists on the genre. Dancing encouraged… especially after mimosa #3.
Lael Neale (Nov. 13): Hailing from rural Virginia, Lael Neale is one of LA’s newest kids on the block. She’s known for her hazy psychedelic folk music, which she writes herself. Her musical style has drawn comparisons to the likes of Angel Olsen and Sharon Van Etten, and her distinctive fashion even earned her a feature in Vogue. Don’t miss her performance on Monday, November 13!
DJ Chad Ubovich (Nov. 13): Chad Ubovich is part of garage rock band Meatbodies, and he’s also played with Together Pangea and Fuzz. Catch him at The Regent on 11/13 performing with Meatbodies (+ Night Beats and The Paranoyds) – and mosey on over to The Love Song afterward for his DJ set!
Ariel Pink After Party (Nov. 17): After Ariel Pink’s show at the Regent on November 17, head next door to the Love Song to keep the party going! We’ll be hosting punk legend Don Bolles… currently of Ariel Pink. Don will be joined by Spaceland’s own… Sammie Pearson and they will be spinning Junkshop Bubblegum Glam. The perfect soundtrack for your bubblegum dreams!
Night Shop, Queen of Swords, Anna St. Louis (Dec. 1): December 1st is going to be a stacked Friday night at the Love Song. Headlining the evening is Night Shop, which is Justin Sullivan’s solo project — you can expect melancholy rock jams. Sullivan is one of the best drummers out there, and has played for Kevin Morby, The Babies, and Flat Worms. Then, we’ve got dark dream pop band Queen of Swords, which is Aerin Fogel’s (of The Bitters) latest project. To end the night, singer-songwriter Anna St. Louis will be showcasing her gorgeous vocals. You’ll definitely want to be there!
Krampus Run After Party (Dec. 14): Krampus Run is a special tradition in DTLA, whereby costumed performers take over a full block of the LA Art Walk to showcase their talents. Head to the Love Song for the official Krampus Run After Party! We’ll have Tuba Heatherton, Christina Linhardt, and more wacky guests on deck – costumes definitely encouraged. It’s going down on Thursday, December 14!
Sam Morrow (Jan. 18): On January 18, we’re looking forward to jamming with Sam Morrow! He’s a mainstay at the Love Song, but if you haven’t gotten the opportunity to see him perform, you won’t want to miss it. Dubbed an “urban cowboy” by LA Weekly, Morrow blends country music with folk and psychedelic rock. He’s got a unique style that makes him stand out in the LA music scene, and we can’t wait to have him back!
