Saw Tedeschi Trucks perform. The venue has an old Hollywood charm in Downtown LA. We sat in one of the balconies off to the side. Good sound system. This area is becoming rejuvenated so there's lots of good eateries around.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
