I have to say, we’ve recently moved to an area which will be really difficult to leave. Playa Vista is a little utopian community in Los Angeles, pretty close to the airport and quite centrally located.
Every Monday, from 5-8 PM, the community organizes Music Mondays. Last night, we listened to the School of Rock – over Smores!! And once the band was done, they had a DJ playing some of the new popular songs.
A few weeks ago, it was local Indie bands. In the past, they have had 80’s theme and Spooky Spins dance parties!
More communities need to do this. It gets folks together, it entertains kids and adults alike, and also helps neighborhood businesses. Plus, musicians get a good venue to perform and a welcoming audience!
