The remodeled Midcentury Modern-style home sits on a half-acre lot with a separate guest unit. Features include two interior fireplaces, a home theater, an exercise room, a security system, four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Walls of glass open to an outdoor fireplace, swimming pool and spa.

A concert Sunday at the Troubadour in West Hollywood constitutes more than the usual raft of aspiring musicians that often takes place in local clubs: This one will showcase nearly two dozen students who make up the first graduating class from USC's Popular Music Program, touted as the first of its kind at a major university in granting baccalaureate degrees in pop music performance.
