free skid row concert

No, not the 90's hair-metal band. Skid Row, the area in downtown that you try to avoid when you come down here for a dose of street cred. It's close to the Fashion District, the place overrun on Saturdays with frantic searches for a Prada knockoff, $5 sunglasses, and bootleg DVDs, but worlds away from Walt Disney Hall and Staples Center. I know what you're thinking - there is no way her astrologer, stylist, numerologist, Pat Benatar look-alike, drug buddy, photographer, or girlfriends from OC will do anything on Skid Row, even a free concert, no matter how much under the influence.

The Los Angeles County Arts Commission will sponsor a Free Concert on Friday, April 29, 2005 from 1:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. in San Julian Park located at the corner of San Julian and 5th Street. The concert will feature Louis Van Taylor Band, a jazz and R&B group, and is free and open to the public. The Los Angeles Poverty Department, an arts organization, in collaboration with SRO Housing Corporation, an affordable housing developer and manager of San Julian Park, will host the event.

Maybe the Elvis impersonator will want to go.
