Sometimes you get so busy chasing the horizon that you don't realize that horizon is already here. By which, I mean: Hyde Park Half. After years and years of wanting to get involved with a permanent solution to the dearth of venues here, I think the future may be closer than I had thought. Los Angeles is one of those places that continually shoots itself in the foot when it comes to DIY venues for music and other community events. The graveyard of one-great-venues has claws of adamantium and they come ripping fast and furious: The PCH, The SOS Project, Headline Records, The Ojai Women's Club, and on and on ad infinitum. Hyde Park Half seeks to be a sort of antidote to this problem.
The aim is to create a space that will showcase wonderful music a few times a month. The aim is also to create a space that will provide free tutoring and educational support for the Inglewood community. The aim is also to provide free artistic outlets for the Inglewood community. In all, Hyde Park Half seeks to tourniquet our constant lack of venues while also offering much needed community outreach to the city of Inglewood, where the venue is located.
If you wish to play a part in this new project, please email Hyde Park Half directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or check the Hyde Park Half website. There will be a meeting this Sunday, November 8th that you should plan on attending.
Upcoming shows will feature Final Fight, Head High, Let Live, Tigon, Ghostlimb, Rogue State, Forming, Touche Amore, Colorchromatic, Drowning With Our Anchors, Maladie, Acts of Sedition, Graf Orlock, and us.

In parting, lady to greatly admire (listen to the interview!),
