With the sporadic March and April rains, inside events versus outside events are a daily debate. Might be best to stay indoors earlier in the week. There are some fantastic concerts taking place. By the weekend it will be time to enjoy LA’s lovely outdoor weather again!

If you haven’t had a chance to see Lady Antebellum in person, this is an opportunity you won’t want to miss.

They are bringing their Own The Night 2012 World Tour to the STAPLES Center this Tuesday night. Special guests include Thompson Square and Darius Rucker, formerly of Hootie & The Blowfish. Rucker releases his first country album this year, which is a logical segue for this talented musician who’s music has always had a Southern warmth and soulfulness to it.
