Los Angeles is famous for so many reasons, and there’s no denying the star quality of the city. If you want to go and see where the best music venues are and relive the nights where your favorite band might have played, these are the best ones to check out.

The Roxy

The Roxy has been around since the early 1970s and has had legends play on this Sunset Strip stage from every decade since. The really cool thing about the Roxy is not just who’s played there, but how many musicians appreciate it and it’s intimacy. Many famous bands like U2 and the Foo Fighters have played gigs there in the last few of years just because they love the atmosphere and history.
