Coronavirus - COVID-19 Message 30 – October 19, 2021

As of October 7, 2021, LA County and some other areas of California will require proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID test for admission to indoor restaurants, bars and events.  Please check with any venue you plan on attending for their specific requirements, and be prepared to show proof of vaccination and/or a recent Negative COVID test result at the door.

Tuesday, June 15th marked the end of most California restrictions on live music venues including bars, restaurants, and indoor/outdoor performance venues.  Some venues have begun offering full seating for live music, while others are operating at reduced capacity.  

Larger venues in California now require masks and proof of vaccination/negative COVID test, per state requirements.  Please check with individual venues for specific requirements including advance reservations, masks and social distancing. 

Some venues and musicians are continuing to offer livestream events – please visit your favorite club and artist websites for more information about livestream events – the Quick Calendar has a limited schedule of livestream events available with showtimes and event weblinks when available.

Please see the
Quick Calendar at and About & Out online at – both are updated on a regular basis throughout the week.
