Los Angeles is a city rich with live music, but there has been no live music event that pays tribute to the songwriting talent in this city quite like TopTune, part talent showcase, part songwriting competition, part improv comedy - a "Circus of musical alchemy" and a rollicking good time.
Go-go is very much alive and while the events themselves may attract an element of violence, there is something else happening in that space; something that requires enormous discipline, practice, and commitment.
We're going to rely on you, the artists, to find other creative people and foster innovative sounds. I pledge that I'll buy your stuff. But don't expect preferential treatment because of where you're from. The scene is dead. Long live the scene.
