A true SFV treasure. Far unlike anywhere else in town. A large and very beautiful diverse crowd, and a keen sense of attention from the audience, everyone is completely rapt in the performance the whole time. Sometimes a bit difficult to socialize because of that, but most people fall in love at first site and become strong loyal supporters and regulars and become involved. A great deal of benefits like live webcasting, HD video recording for youtube with camera angles in a very hip and attractive setting. Pro-tools sessions and video formats available at a very reasonable price. Incredibly supportive and encouraging crowd. One of the best choices not just in LA, but in the US. Expect to see celebrities of all ranks all the time.

All ages are welcome, so come on over at 7:00pm and sign up for the 1 song (or spoken word) lottery. At 7:30 the host will pull the names from a basket one at a time. We usually have about 35 artists signing up so please perform a song that is 4 minutes or less so that all the artists signing up have a chance to play. For $20 you can request a DVD copy of your performance, which will be available for pick up on the following Monday night after 7pm. You are welcome to use our acoustic guitar, baby grand piano (on loan by Bill Stettler, Thank you Bill) and drum kit (use our brushes please). You can also sing to a track if you bring it in on a CD. Original songs are 95% of what artists do here but covers are fine as well. No amps please. We have all the audio gear, DI
