As the bass player for the Movies, an indie rock band out of Silver Lake, I thought I had played just about every hole in the wall in Los Angeles with every no-name performer in town. So it came as a surprise when, having been asked to seek out the best unknown musical acts and venues in the area, I found a seemingly endless assortment of places and faces that I never knew existed. Some of the musicians and scenes I stumbled upon may break through one day. Most won't.
