Also of interest to guitar aficionados...

A number of music shops and venues in the SoCal area offer frequent, mostly non-classical, guitar concerts,  including Boulevard Music in Culver City, Trilogy Guitars in Playa del Rey, The Fret House in Covina, McCabe's Guitar Shop in Santa Monica, Fretted Products in Glendora, the Coffee Gallery Backstage in Altadena and Sierra Madre Music in Sierra Madre.  Notable classical guitar events in these venues will normally appear in the listing below.
