Unheard LA - the stories of where you live

Unheard LA - the stories of where you live

This is not a beginner’s guide to L.A., jokes about freeways or $10 maps to the stars. Buckle up as we steer off the beaten path and explore Southern California through the eyes and experiences of some of the millions of people who call it home.

“Unheard LA” is a brand-new series of live shows in different venues around our sprawling and too-often disconnected metropolis. Each show is unique and features a distinct lineup of real people sharing their true stories of struggle and survival, of hope and fear, of the unexpected and the unbelievable.

These are the unheard stories of L.A., the stories of where you live.

Check out a show and stick around afterward for a mixer with performers and fellow attendees.
