New Year and
Los Angeles is incredibly fun, nothing beats the summer months. With
the sun out and schedules bursting at the seams, it is time to get
planning! With the lineup of events packing up the June and July
calendar, you’ll be opening up the floodgates to a load of fun outdoor
and indoor activities all around Los Angeles. Some are free, others
require a nominal fee, so, take your pick.
The month of July and early August are more packed than others,
naturally, and you’ll get to enjoy infectious music festivals,
exhilarating concerts, catch an outdoor movie screening (which is
almost always free), live it up with an impromptu getaway at a
neighboring CA beach, pack your friends into the rented charter
a tailgating party, or join everyone else for the July 4th fireworks
and parade. With longer days, cooler nights, it's the
perfect time to
let your hair down and enjoy concerts, cultural festivals, seasonal
markets, quaint exhibits at museums, a weekend of camping, a cocktail
event, or a pool party.
Don’t let anything stand between you and the best summer of your life.

despite going into semi-retirement in 1985. Fans know them as the
rarity of an all-female group who plays their own instruments, compose
and sing their own songs. This was a refreshing change from the
constant of manufactured bands and cookie-cutter groups. Billboard
charts welcomed their inclusion and so did their fans.
