Largo at the Coronet
LARGO AT THE CORONET366 N La Cienega Blvd Los Angeles CA90048
If you’re looking for something different to do in Los Angeles, a one-of-a-kind experience can be found nightly at Largo at the Coronet. The shows at this tiny venue are seriously stellar, making a night with friends here something special. One glance at the Largo calendar of events and you won’t know which tickets to snatch up first. Some of the most innovative comedians in the country—Patton Oswalt, Sarah Silverman, Demetri Martin—perform here regularly. You’ll feel like you’re in on a secret as you hear them try out new material before they bring it to the masses. If your crowd is into music, don’t miss Colin Hay, the former front man from Men at Work, who mines acoustic gold with his famous twelve-string guitar. The intimate space makes it feel like you’re hearing a concert in your living room. Another show not to be missed is Jon Brion, a musical genius who has scored movies like Punch Drunk Love and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. You’ll turn to your friends with a “how is he doing this?” look as Brion plays different instruments, one after the other, records them in real time, then loops it all together to create a gorgeous one-man orchestra. Be prepared to ask him to sing your favorite song. Brion takes requests from the audience, and like the magic that is synonymous with Largo, he always knows how to play each one.
