Friday nights on CityWalk will rock with musical performances from The Spazmatics, along with host Richard Blade, renowned ’80s DJ, from 7:30-10:00 p.m. I’m NOT interested in that part.

L.A.’s top alternative and indie bands will perform in an outdoor “festival” setting on Saturday nights with the new series, “Indie 103.1’s Check 1 … 2 … LIVE!” from CityWalk with Mr. Shovel and Music Connection Magazine. The weekly indie concert series will bring LA’s hottest up-and-coming bands on-stage from 7:30-10:00 p.m. That sounds AWESOME!!
