Opened in 1957, Doug Weston’s Troubadour was born as a coffeehouse. Home of the folk music boom in the early sixties and through the late sixties and into the seventies, the "Troub" was where everybody who was anybody played. Bands like The Eagles were formed there and artists like Tom Waits were discovered there. In 1999 Waits said, "(The Troub) was the big place to play. …if you sold out … Moreat the Troubadour, that was it.." Elton John, Jackson Browne, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Butterfield Blues Band, and Electric Flag. Although music has changed a great deal since then, The Troub has not. The historical club has always been there to nurture the artists who play there.

The Wiltern Theatre first opened its doors to movie crowds on October 7th, 1931, as the Warner Theatre – a part of the Warner Brothers chain of first-run theaters. It later was re-named The Wiltern – after its location at the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Western Avenue. Recognized by the City of Los Angeles as a Historic Cultural Monument and placed on the National Register of Historic Pl … Moreaces, this Art Deco Landmark was saved from the wrecking ball by the efforts of the Los Angeles Conservancy and was renovated and restored to its original splendor in 1985 by the Ratkovich Company, opening under the direction of Bill Graham Presents.
Following a legendary history of performances and events, a $1.5 million facelift led to the Grand Re-Opening on October 15, 2002. Formerly an all-seated venue, the theatre had its 1,200-orchestra level seats removed and now features a five-tiered floor that rises upward from the stage, thereby accommodating every type of audience, from a standing-room-only configuration to banquet-style seated events. The balcony still offers a thousand permanent seats, and the flexible new arrangement allows for seats to be brought in to the floor section downstairs for more intimate performances. The venue’s new capacity is roughly 2,300, depending on how the main floor level is arranged
