Sleepless: The Music Center's After Hours

  • Dorothy Chandler Pavilion 135 N Grand Ave Los Angeles, CA 90012 USA (map)


Revel late into the night at The Music Center with never-before-seen spaces and new experiences as you race toward dawn. From behind-the-scenes backstage access and top floor views, to secluded basement encounters, experience the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion transformed as DJs, dancing, eye-opening video installations, delightful activities and sonic sculptures reimagine our iconic downtown venue.

We’ve got you covered . . . all this and more for $20 in advance, and $30 at the door!

> Peep the backstage! For the first time, enter this behind-the-scenes world guided by an experience interpreter and be captivated by immersive projections, light and music. (limited capacity, first come, first served)

> Bask in an artfully designed environment created by Katie Byron and grab headphones for silent dancing to simultaneous DJ sets.

> Get on the good foot under the disco ball in the glitteringly exclusive Founders Room, featuring DJs and electronic musicians curated by Resident Advisor. (limited capacity)

> Reach out and touch someone. Step into decommissioned phone booths and dial up the Sleepless hotline from your mobile device for live music sessions from Geneva Jacuzzi.

> Sink deeper below the stairs, and soak in the melodic and soulful electronic jams of frequent Beastie Boys collaborator and multi-instrumentalist Money Mark.

> Decompress to DJ sets, live performances and epic projections while lounging on pillows, cushions, and bean bags, OR bring your own soft seating (no chairs please). Live visuals by Alex Pelly. NEW LINE UP! Featuring sci-fi Hip-Hop sounds from Ras G, the self-described “liquid cool” of Nite Jewel, blooming beats from Teebs, and the entrancing vibes of Sage Caswell.

> Follow George Jensen on a journey through the Light Lock with quadraphonic field recordings that will have you grooving to sounds of the natural world.

> Arrive in style. LA Record brings its cadre of DJs to welcome you on The Music Center Plaza with crate-digging psychedelic sounds.
