The idea is giving fans under-the-radar rising acts they’re proud to pay to see, and also giving artists a chance to pay dues by getting on dope lineups that expose them to influential LA crowds. 6 tight acts.  This isn’t a showcase, it’s an experience."

David Liebe Hart LIVE
Aug
5
to Aug 6

David Liebe Hart LIVE

w/ ADULT KARATE (Album Release)
R. CLOWN
MARTIN MARTINS

Best known for his roles on Adult Swim’s Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job!, David Liebe Hart is an outsider musician, actor and painter. A true original, he has communicated with extra-terrestrials, owns a large collection of puppets, and is obsessed with trains.

On stage, David unleashes his most unbridled, maniacally passionate self, complete with his decrepit ventriloquist puppets, stories of alien encounters, and heartily belted songs about space, locomotives and unrequited love. Every show is as different and unpredictable as David is himself, and can veer from hilarity in one moment to awkward confusion in the next. In any case, a truly unique and mind-bending experience is guaranteed. August’s west coast US tour has Liebe Hart backed by a rollicking space-rock trio led by lauded indie rocker Mo Troper, co-founder of Portland OR-based Good Cheer Records.

LIVE at The Virgil + DJ Heybradwhatsup b Side!

NO COVER

The Absurd brings their rowdy brand of heavy groove-oriented music to the Virgil's famed dance-floor. It's fun and outrageous, but make no mistake: They are on a divine mission to get your booty shakin'.

ASHES OF LUNA returns with a vengeance. These space age dance-commandos boast an eclectic blend of art-pop, post-hardcore, and electronic, all centered around stadium ready hooks and thumping grooves.

Ned and the Dirt just returned from yet another successful tour. These valiant defenders of rock n' roll mash up 90s indie rawness with post-hardcore grooves and pop hooks to die for.

The Gooms open up the night with their rip-roaring garage rock. We're talkin' about a band fronted by a wild-eyed time-traveling madman from the past, with a hot extraterrestrial in coveralls on guitar (it's a convincingly human disguise) and an octopus for a drummer.

HEYBRADWHATSUP b side 9PM - 1AM plays jams to dance to. Lots of early 2000s hits, hip hop, r&b, maybe some Selena, and more.

Dear Owen Wilson is a live comedy show hosted by Blair Socci. After a wildly successful, sold-out run in New York City, this is the show's Los Angeles debut. Based on a letter Blair wrote to Owen Wilson in 2007 after his suicide attempt telling him how much she loved him and appreciated him, the show will feature comedians reading a letters to the celebrities of their choice. They could write it from the perspective of their 13 year old selves connecting to Dave Matthews Band as their parents are getting a divorce, or maybe they just want to tell Madonna how hot she is. After, Blair will interview them about it. The show will also include stand-up, special guests, and other surprises. Come get to know comedians spilling their heart out in ways you've never seen before.
