Where: The Wiltern Theater

As far as performances go, what could be more fun than, well… fun.? The alternative rock band, fun., is taking over the Wiltern Theater for three straight nights this weekend. Grab your best suspenders and converse high-tops and head over to see one of their shows. You won’t want to miss this hipster trio, known for their high-energy and fun-filled performances.

Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias

Where: The STAPLES Center

Two of America’s favorite Latin performers are teaming up tonight for what is sure to be a fabulous over-the-top concert at The STAPLES Center. The world-famous singer, J Lo, will be singing and dancing in one of her favorite couture designers, Zuhair Murad. The always-sensual Enrique Iglesias will be accompanying the diva, singing his pop ballads. This concert will definitely be one you won’t want to miss. 


Sunset Strip Music Festival

Where: Sunset Strip

No one knows how to put on an overly dramatic performance quite like the king of all things shocking and disturbing, Marilyn Manson. The controversial music icon is headlining this weekend’s Sunset Strip Music Festival on Saturday. Starting Friday, SSMF is infiltrating some of Hollywood’s hottest venues for a three-day-long rock fest with the likes of The Offspring and Bad Religion. Come early to stakeout a spot outside of the mosh pit’s reach. Read our article on SSMF’s opening tribute to The Doors 8/18/12.


SUNDAY 8/19:

Colbie Caillat and Gavin DeGraw

Where: The Greek Theater

If you prefer your musical performances a bit more subdued, you’ll want to check out Colbie Caillat and Gavin DeGraw at the Greek Theater. The combination of these two soulfully poppy stars will be sure to have you on your feet (or at least swaying in your seats). The singers hit the stage this Sunday at 7:00pm.
