In recent years, the LevittLA has also served as a venue to showcase local talent. “Last year we saw record breaking attendance,” says Eddie Cota, Artistic Director, “and this year’s schedule will feature programming on par with the best-known live music venues in LA.” This season’s artists include the Brazilian hip-hop sounds of Criolo, the African hip-hop beat of SMOD, the Indie pop/rock group Fools Gold and many more international flavors and artists.
