Great shows 4/2/2007

Great, cozy place to see a show. Great sound system. Good crowd, interesting and talented musicians. Pros: ambience, not overly crowded, has seating Cons: they don't serve alcohol more

Banjos, Guitars, Ukes and a strumming staff 3/24/2005

Whether its group uke classes or concerts with headliners, McCabes packs in a loyal clientele of singers, pickers, and musicians-in-progress. Every ince of the walls support stringed instruments of all kinds -- especially accoustic. The staff is knowledgable, and happy to help you make a decision. And the group lessons are a bargain, with the first lesson free! more

Great Acoustic Music Sets 6/5/2002

McCabe's has its pluses and minuses. On the one hand, it's a great place to see live music in L.A. Musicians love to play here because the space is intimate and the crowds are fun. It's not unusual to see people singing and dancing along from the get go -- something that rarely happens elsewhere in L.A. Also, there's a music store attached, so audience members can pick up guitar strings or whatever else they may need. On the downside, there's no alcohol served here, so people who are used to enjoying live music with a drink in their hand might be caught a little bit off guard. Also, the neighborhood is pretty barren so far as other places to eat/drink/get a coffee go. Take the good with the bad and it's still pretty good. Check out Dan Bern or Martin Simpson -- both great performers and both McCabes semi-regulars. Pros: great acoustic jams Cons: no drinks, not much in area more

It's all about the banjo ... 5/20/2002

... but this review isn't. McCabes does carry a fine selection of banjos -- Gibsons, Deering, Stelling, resonator and open-backed, new and used. But they also stock many (more) guitars, electric and accoustic, fiddles, mandolins, ukeleles, kettle drums, even bones. There's usually a pot of coffee brewing. The staff is knowledgeable, attentive (but not overly), funny, and talented. They'll pick out a song for you if you like. There are lots of lessons. McCabe's also serves as an intimate showcase for some of the finest accoustic touring acts in the land. Some terrific kid shows, too. more

Editorial

  • In Short
    The humble back room of this venerable acoustic music store and repair shop has hosted some of folk and alternative's most acclaimed musicians, including Jeff Buckley, Beck, Sun Ra and Liz Phair. Folding chairs on a flat floor make for aching spines and bad sight lines, but the genuine warmth of the venue and high quality of the performers keep Westside folkies and Hollywood hipsters coming back.
