Can’t Miss May Concerts in Los Angeles

by Matt Downes & Aurora Cowen

April is becoming one of our favorite months of the year.  Coachella has officially become a tour stop in our yearly itinerary, and this month we added two great regional shows featuring Vampire Weekend and Tanlines, and Alt-J at their only other regional tour stop until they come back in August at the Hollywood Palladium.  Touring season is in full swing and Los Angeles is one of the best places to be for live events in the U.S. this month!  Here is a list of some of the can’t miss shows!
