Friday, November 16th

Casey’s Irish Pub – The Health Club
Bashing out the 90′s indie rock sound with influences rooted from Pavement, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, Pixies, and other noise bands you can catch The Health Club every Friday at Casey’s. And just like your mom, the show is FREE.

Caña Rum Bar – Native Wayne
Tonight Grammy-winning reggae luminary Wayne Hobson, also known as Native Wayne to his Indie 103 fans, will be behind the wheels of steel bringing us the good vibes via an eclectic set of classic reggae, dancehall, afrobeat, and whatever else he deems worthy of your listening pleasure. It’s Friday night, so if you’d like to ensure yourself a table or bring more than three guests, reservations are necessary. Right near the beach… Boyyyyyyyyyy!

Las Perlas – Natasha Chaney
Shawn Carter and Natasha Chaney met at a party, by the end of the night they were finishing each others sentences. Only three months later BEAUTY OF THE BEATS was born. BEAUTY OF THE BEATS are the vibe setters, tastemakers, and déjà vu creators! Natasha and Shawn, two friends brought together by another (we call her “Charlie”) and a common desire to bring quality, cutting edge, musical gems to any dance floor.

Saturday, November 17th

Casey’s Irish Pub – ViSE ViRSA
Ever hear of the band ViSE ViRSA? If you’re like most, you never have. But great music will prevail and at 213 we believe that. Casey’s intends to change that and you can get up close and personal with them every Saturday in November. With their blend of indie rock and twang noise they will be tappin’ toes and drinkin’ whiskey. Of course like always there is no cover. Enjoy the show and the show will enjoy you.

Las Perlas – DJ Darren Revell
Las Perlas welcomes DJ Darren Revell from 103′s Big Sonic Heaven tonight. Darren will be spinning everything from Post Punk to New Wave to Eighties so grab your head bands and leg warmers and get on down here. We’ll see you then!

Caña Rum Bar – Music Selector Jose Galvan
Its time for you to stop living and start winning! What better way to do that than to join us @ Caña Rum Bar for Jose Galvan. Tonight and every Saturday night Jose joins us playing Latin Alternative, Funky Beats and Caribbean Rhythms. We will also be serving some of the most delicious rum cocktails ever to have touched your tongue. Get in here and get some!

Sunday, November 18th

The Varnish – Sinful Sunday’s featuring Niki Lindgren
Speak easy, and she’ll sing hard. The Varnish now featuring Sinful Sunday’s with Niki Lindgren singing cheeky songs from the 20′s, 30′s and 40′s, and Ben Bromfield on the ivories. Come on in for a swell time!

Seven Grand DTLA – Critical Brass
The CRITICAL BRASS brass band brings the swing with their rather rump-thumping trademark blend of New Orleans Hiphop Jazz Dixie Soul Second Line Funk! Their mission is to keep the second-line tradition alive and rump-thumpin’ all along the West Coast and right here at home in the Angel City. Come visit them here at Seven Grand DTLA tonight!

Seven Grand DTLA & Wild Turkey Thanksgiving Eve Party! (11.21.12, 5pm – Close)

November 15th, 2012 — 10:44am

Thanksgiving is a tough holiday.  You gather at your parents house, eat turkey, get drunk and listen to your mom yell at your brother for not calling her enough while filling her glass full of some cheap Chardonnay.   Well, Seven Grand has just the solution for your problems and a guaranteed way to make things a little bit smoother this year.  On Thanksgiving Eve, we along with our gracious sponsor Wild Turkey, are going to throw a party to celebrate everything Thanksgiving.

We will be featuring a Wild Turkey Spiced Cranberry Punch Cocktail all night, for $6. Each glass of punch gets a raffle ticket.  Door is free entry, however with each $1 donation we will be giving out a raffle ticket for prizes being given out throughout the night.  All donations will be going to the LA Midnight Mission for Thanksgiving Dinner.

There are going to be Hats, T Shirts and a couple surprise prizes throughout the night in the raffle.  The prizes will be drawn every hour and the winning tickets put on our chalk board so that no one has to be waiting around to hear if they have won anything.

Other than that we are hoping to continue to throw the best Thanksgiving Eve bash in LA and get everyone prepared for an entire day with their families!  Come one, come all!
