Before everyone was busy photographing concerts and clubs with their smartphones, L.A.’s live-music scene wasn’t that well-documented. Venues were dark, cameras and flash usually were prohibited, and photography was generally unwelcome.
Rock bands, the recording industry, and audiences were flourishing from the late ’70s to late ’80s, but not much of the lively era was being captured for posterity. So several professional photographers decided to head out a few nights a week to snap images of the most interesting and entertaining new groups making the rounds. Mötley Crüe, the Bangles, Eazy-E, and Black Flag are just a few they photographed to accompany reviews in the alternative and, occasionally, mainstream press.

Los Angeles is an iconic and often weird city to both live in and visit. Where else can you bump into celebrities, see a 50-foot-woman exhibit or visit the Watts Towers to view art made out of almost anything? We love L.A. and it’s safe to say that one of the best parts about the City of Angels is the way it continues to surprise its residents and out-of-towners with unique and wonderful offbeat attractions. Here’s a list of a few of our favorite spots, but it’s safe to say if you ask us this time next year, the city will have surprised us with a whole new subset of weird and funky things to do.
