Not to brag, but we’re no stranger to world class musicians…but that’s not to say that we don’t still get chills when something really amazing happens on our stage. Our 6th sense tells us that tomorrow will be one of those chill-inducing shows. Al Dimeola is a a living legend, and we cannot wait to witness the magic. Click here for tickets or give us a call at 310 278 9457.
The Roxy ladies were out in full force last week, schmoozin with the best of ’em as a good chunk of the industry was in town for the CIC conference. We were able to connect faces to email addresses and get to know some of the people who make our business go round on a daily basis. Such a pleasure sharing a coctail with some of the heavyweights – and knowing that we’re all doing the best we can to make it. Our party last week with Ima Robot, Ringside, and Crash Kings was the talk of the town – and we couldn’t have been happier to have our room on display. Hope you all made it back safe and sound, and that LA treated you well. See you next year!
We’ve been waiting a while to be able to celebrate Nico Vega’s album release and we couldn’t be happier to host it (along with KROQ Locals Only and Myspace) on our stage! Nico Vega has been a force to be reckoned with for quite sometime, and anytime we are able to catch her, we are even more amazed! Along with The Yelling and The Union Line – not to be missed! Oh, did I mention the tickets are $7?? Click here or call us at 310 278 9457.
Mark your calendars for this WEDNESDAY JANUARY 28, 2009 as we open our doors to all the local and not-so local folks in town for the annual CIC Music Conference. With some of LA’s hottest bands and industry buzz bands on the bill (IMA ROBOT, RINGSIDE & CRASH KINGS), we know it will be a sweet party. If you’re in town for the conference, show us your badge and you’re good to go. Have no fear, if you’re just a local music lover – we want you to come join the party – click here to purchase tickets or give us a call.
Fresh off of their stellar residency at the always cool , Spaceland – we know WEST INDIAN GIRL was a must-have show for The Roxy. Tonight, come join WEST INDIAN GIRL, w/ Julliette Commagere, and His Orchestra for some quality tunes. Tickets available at the door tonight or click here!
Los Angeles-based sextet, West Indian Girl, crafts a distinct sound that’s seemingly rooted between the majestic hills of Laurel Canyon and the deep blue horizons of the Pacific Ocean. – myspace.com/westindiangirl

Early last week, much to our dismay, Indie 103.1 shut down their radio waves. As a thank you for all the great years we have had working with Indie we are making our Love Grenades show tonight our “Peace Out” Party! We hope to soon be working with the online station but in the meantime wanted to give thanks to people who made the past years so good. For the employees who formerly worked there as well as the peeps still working the online station we invite you all down to party with us. Your ID badge, Business Card, or Indie key card will get you and a guest into the club… and your first drinks are on us too. Much love you Indie peeps!
The Roxy Staff.
Sold out Unwritten Law show on Saturday really killed it! They’ve played here several times throughout the years…and it was really great to get them back on our stage!
Thanks to EV for the pics!
What a fabulous night last night! It went early into the morning…and it was such a party!!
Thanks to Erik Voake for capturing the moment!
Indie 103.1 has been one of our favorite stations for a while. They’ve brought us amazing shows like THE SEX PISTOLS and are home to some of our favorite CAMP FREDDY guys. Always a pleasure to work with them in any capacity, and we are very sad to see them go. Quality music. Quality programming. And quality people. Special thanks to SCOTT DALLAVO, DANNY SWAY JACLYN KAJZER, MARK SOVEL, TK, NATIVE WAYNE, JONESY – and the rest of our pals. Luckily, we can continue to listen online at indie1031.com but we already miss it on our dial. Thanks for everything!

Sometimes I’m against “Best Of” lists. Mostly because I never agree with them…so to remedy that – Team Roxy have created our own version of what we thought the highlights of ’08 were. Scanning thru the ’08 Roxy calendar – it was hard to narrow it down (which is a good thing)!
For the record – this started as a TOP 5…but some people *cough* Meg and Heath couldn’t make up their mind. Let us know what your favorite Roxy shows were! Thanks to everyone who contributed to making the year a success – from MYSPACE, to DIM MAK, and everyone in between. Viva 2009!
Its official. Starting tomorrow….Zappa mania begins. Arguably one of the most influential musicians of our time – its such a treat to have Dweezil Zappa and company (Zappa Plays Zappa)playing the legendary tunes of Frank Zappa. In what is normally an arena show, it’s so exciting to have 4 nights of such an intimate show. We hear there are a few tickets left- so check out ticketmaster and see what you can conjure up.
Here’s a sneak peek – Zappa Plays Zappa DVD
Peaches En Regalia (Live)
Sorry to the youngsters – but you have to sit this one out 🙁 We’re normally all ages – but for this particular event – it is 18+. We just got word of this as well, so sorry for the inconvenience. Hope to see you all at a show very soon.

The line has begun! Traveling from far and wide…this group is securing life in the front row! If you are a Keane fan that couldn’t make it to the show…or weren’t lucky enough to score tickets -please join us on Twitter – where we’ll let you know any up to the minute happenings inside these glorious 4 walls.
Nothing quite like a mellow afternoon, maybe a little Sunset blvd cruisin, and Donavon Frankenreiter as your soundtrack. Something about his voice makes you take things in stride and reminds you not to be bothered by the little things in life. It’s that not the good life, what is?
Come see it live as we welcome Donavon to The Roxy in 2009 (February 20th). Tickets are onsale now! Give us a call here (310 278 9457) or click here.

In the spirit of the timeless, classy style Puma has created over the past 60 Years – it’s only fitting that they celebrate across the country with some amazing parties.
