“Unheard LA” (live)

Take Two, best show?
This is not a beginner’s guide to L.A., jokes about freeways or $10 maps to the stars. Buckle up as KPCC FM (Southern California Public Radio) steers off the beaten path and explores Southern California through the eyes and experiences of some of the millions of people who call it home.
“Unheard LA” is a brand-new, three-part series of live shows in different venues around this sprawling and too-often disconnected mega-metropolis. Each show is unique and features a distinct lineup of real people sharing their true stories of struggle and survival, of hope and fear, of the unexpected and the unbelievable.
These are the unheard stories of L.A., the stories of where we live. Check out one, or more, of the following shows and stick around afterwards for a mixer with performers and fellow attendees. More
