Pavilion ‘Levitt-ates’ our city, says Mayor Eric Garcetti
I love the Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles. But don’t listen to me. Listen to Mayor Garcetti, who calls it a “spark” and a “community asset” whose “vitality is a model of urban revitalization.” According to Garcetti, “We can have all the best clean-up in the world, but if there’s nothing in between that keeps people ...
Time has finally come today. The Chambers Bros at Levitt Pavilion
The Chambers Brothers are an American soul band, best known for its eleven minute long 1968 hit “Time Has Come Today”. The group was part of the wave of new music that integrated American blues and gospel traditions with modern psychedelic and rock elements. Like their West Coast contemporaries Sly and the Family Stone, the ...
We’re not little old ladies. And we’re not from Pasadena. But we’re going to ‘Jan & Dean’s Beach Party’ at Levitt Pavilion.
Even though we hear there are gonna be two girls for every boy. And that sucks! Bring your surfboards to hear Dean Torrence of Jan & Dean sing “Little Old Lady from Pasadena”, “Dead Man’s Curve” and “Surf City” along with his group of musicians who have performed with both Jan & Dean and The ...

Yes, a songbird, thrush, warbler, coloratura, balladeer … she self-describes as a ‘troubadour.’ But who knew that folk-rock legend Judy Collins is also supremely entertaining, a raconteur spieling salty, even ribald stories all while innocently strumming her guitar? Tonight in a delicious free concert at Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles, Collins lulled her audience like a ...

This was Denishawn
We’re looking forward to spending an evening — picnic and free music concert — at outdoor-amphitheater Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles in MacArthur Park on June 12.

Live it at the Levitt! Boco do Rio @ MacArthur Park Saturday
Okay, guys we’re in it, it’s official, it’s on. It’s August! Summer 2014 is a happening thing; you could call it a “fait accompli”! Or, of greater concern, soon to wane! So the time is right for the swinging samba rhythms that always sound good, but somehow better on a sultry summer evening. Which brings ...

This just in from Liz Hirsch, the powerhouse behind the Levitt Pavilions, a national network of outdoor amphitheaters in urban park settings.

Writes Liz: On Saturday, June 15 Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles at MacArthur ...
America, choose your old guy 2
Last night was a tough choice. Very, very hard. Whether to watch Clint Eastwood address the Republican National Convention saying things like “We own this country” (watching the RNC makes me want to cash out), versus a quick drive to the Levitt Pavilion in MacArthur Park where the groovy, happening reggae singer, Don Carlos, a ...
