The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion is one of the halls in the Los Angeles Music Center (which is one of the three largest performing arts centers in the United States). The Music Center's other halls include the Mark Taper Forum, Ahmanson Theatre, and Walt Disney Concert Hall.The Pavilion has 3,156 seats spread over four tiers, with chandeliers, wide curving stairways and rich décor. The auditorium's sections are the Orchestra (divided in Premiere Orchestra, Center Orchestra, Main Orchestra and Orchestra Ring), Circle (divided in Grand Circle and Founders Circle), Loge (divide in Front Loge and Rear Loge), as well as Balcony (divided in Front Balcony and Rear Balcony).HistoryConstruction started on March 9, 1962, and it was dedicated September 27, 1964. The Pavilion was named for Dorothy Buffum Chandler who “led (the) effort to build a suitable home for the Los Angeles Philharmonic and rejuvenate the performing arts in Los Angeles. The result was Mrs. Chandler’s crowning achievement, the Music Center of Los Angeles County. Her tenacious nine-year campaign on behalf of the Music Center produced more than $19 million in private donations” noted Albert Greenstein in 1999.In order to receive approval for construction from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Mrs. Chandler promised Kenneth Hahn that the building would be open free for the public for one day a year. The result was the Los Angeles County Holiday Celebration, a Christmas Eve tradition sponsored by the Board of Supervisors. The program is broadcast on KCET-TV and an edited version of the prior year's show is syndicated to public television stations via PBS.
Echoplex is a live music venue located in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. It is owned and operated by the same people as The Echo, and the two are considered sister venues, with top notch security, especially for the kids. It is located and commonly described as being "below The Echo," leading some to erroneously believe that its official title is "Echoplex Below The Echo." Along with The Echo, Echoplex is affiliated with Spaceland in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles. Some notable performers to have shows at Echoplex include The Mars Volta, Beck, NIN, The Rolling Stones and Thom Yorke.

Los Angeles has a long history of avant-garde and experimental sound.
"Thoughtful audiences will remember that they, as well as the performing artists, are carrying a torch for the arts.
They will realize that to carry a torch for music means first of all to go to concerts, and then to *work at listening*, not merely to bathe in beautiful sounds.
They... are perhaps the last free audiences to the last free artists."
Lawrence Morton, 1958
Morton was the second curator of the famed "Evenings On the Roof" avant-garde music series on 1735 Micheltorena Street in Silverlake from 1939-1971.
FFFF Series is curated by Daniel Munoz and hosted by South of Sunset
