    Concerts are beautiful, so is the building. Leave earlier than you think you need to because of DTLA traffic. Ask for directions inside, it's easy to get lost. NO late seating!

    The sound leaves a lot to be desired for bands if you're not in the pit or lower front garden seating. Bands should bring their own sound system to properly electrify the place.
