In five previous events, Los Angeles Road Concerts has shown work from over 280 Los Angeles artists in unused public outdoor space. In a “road concert” participating artists display installations, perform works, facilitate carpool happenings, host spontaneous readings, and make music in unexpected spaces, such as on the sidewalk, between dumpsters, along streetlamps, on the Expo line, as well as inside the audience’s earbuds as they traverse the path of the road concert. Works can be in one location, many locations, or no location in particular. Through a wide-ranging open call process, LA Road Concerts brings together art school graduates, working artists, local residents and other artists, writers, musicians, performers, to realize a broad array of kinds of interactions with the sites. For this concert, Radical Welcome (National and Washington Blvd.), site-specific works will be performed in various outdoor locations within walking distance of the intersection of National and Washington Blvds.
